New Boron AIR 2 Freshwater Fly Rods - Lighter than AIR

The next generation of all-around freshwater fly rods (3wt-6wt). These rods can do anything -present tiny dry flies to wary trout on flat water, cast a heavy streamer to the far bank in the wind, launch the entire line when you need it, and make quick, accurate close-range shots. From high stick nymphing, pounding the banks from the boat, or wet wading, the new AIR 2 is a pack rod, a travel rod, a beautiful rod, and anall-around rod. It’s the new Winston. When you can only bring one rod...the amazing new Boron AIR 2
