Most Winston fans know about the Biit series. Those who do mostly likely know of the sweetheart in the series being the 486. One thing is clear, though, fly fisherman are holding onto the B2t rods that they own, and I've got several models stashed, myself.

Sadly, Winston discontinued this rod in favor of the BIII-LS, yet I think that was a mistake. Fly fisherman on the now-defunct Winston forum had high praise for the B2T and there was a reason: It is simply an amazing fly rod capable of far more than fishing dry flies. Sorry, Yellowstone Shootout gurus, you guys missed the boat. The guys on the old Winnie forum praised the 8'6" 4wt as a technical marvel and one fella even coined it the "Staff of Moses.

This model is a technical rod putting the fly fisher in control of his/her casts in ways that is not easy to describe. There is power in the recovery and, based on the thin blank Winston used for this rod (particularly near the butt section), the power found in the Biit is deceptive. Perhaps, in addition to this rod's magical taper, it is also the varied boron/graphite mix Winston used in engineering each section. As I understand it, the ratio of boron and graphite blended into each rod section is different.

This particular rod is in excellent condition in all respects. Please see my other listings for fly-fishing related items.
