Winston Twin Bridges 8.0' 5 WT Pre-IM6 Mint

**NO LONGER FOR SALE****

Here is one you don't see every day and certainly not in this condition!

It is the 2 piece version, neon green sock and grey Twin Bridges stickered aluminum tube. The cap reads(but faded) Size8' #5 WT, Handle Cigar, Seat Walnut, Serial 104XX. This also has the trophy stamp on it with made in Montana designation. I can not emphasize the spectacular condition of this rod for its age, hell any age! It’s like new. Not a mark on it.

Anyway, serial number 104XX, which I believe* denotes this was built on the Fisher blank, and in excellent condition (9/10). The serial puts this legendary rod around 87' and it just was a closet queen all of it's life. Obviously, this is a Tom Morgan designed rod and has the same taper as the IM6 and WT series that followed.

I’ve cast a TMF, loved the action for dry flies but they are impossible to find so I had to try and get another similar legendary Winston. I don’t want to sell but my family situation is changing and I can’t justify having collectors rods I don’t use.

*additional reference materials on older Winston rods.

Winston IM6 8' 5wt's

I have two of these already. It is one of my all time favorite fly rods. When I head for the Madison river for the caddis hatch this will be my main rod choice.
