Winston Rod Company Selects Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge as a Winston Preferred Lodge
The R.L. Winston Rod Company in Twin Bridges, Montana, leading manufacturer of the world’s finest fly rods utilizing Boron III technology, is extremely pleased to announce Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge as the newest fly fishing lodge to be selected as a WINSTON PREFERRED LODGE®.
Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge is located in the middle of some of the best wilderness trout fishing in the world. A fly-out lodge in northern British Columbia was discovered in the late 60’s when owner Ray Collingwood was dropped off by a bush pilot on the Firesteel River after hearing of its legendary fishing.
Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge is the only outfitter licensed to guide and fly into the wild and pristine Spatsizi Wilderness Park region, an area roughly 3 times the size of Yellowstone Park. Boat and plane provide exclusive access to the most beautiful, prolific and unspoiled trout fishing in the world including the legendary Firesteel River. With over thirty rivers, lakes and streams to choose from, Spatsizi offers a customized trip for anglers in pursuit of beautiful rainbow, arctic grayling, lake trout and trophy-sized bull trout.
Winston Field Advisor, Todd Moen, first introduced us to the fabled Spatsizi Wilderness Lodge.
“The opportunity to meet and film the Collingwood Family at Spatsizi Lodge was an incredible experience for me as a filmmaker. The lodge sits in the remotest of remote northern B.C.’sSpatsizi Plateau Wilderness Provincial Park, nearly 2 million acres of protected land that includes the upper reaches of the Stikine River.”
The WINSTON PREFERRED LODGE® program is a limited program designed to help our customers benefit from our travels and those of our Dealers, Pro Advisors, and Pro Staff as we test Winston rods in amazing fly fishing locations around the world. Upon receiving recommendations, we will consider additional candidates and expect to announce the names of a select number of other exceptional fly fishing lodges who will be invited to become aWINSTON PREFERRED LODGE®.
