The Prizes

At Winston, we are not only flyfishing fanatics, we are guardians of the water. We are conservationists who believe in protecting our rivers, lakes, and oceans for the generations who will someday cast a line above them. As such, this year's Grand Prize symbolizes the importance of conservation. In addition, we are partnering with Conservation Advisor and Film Festival judge, James Prosek to help increase funding and to better protect cold water resources and native trout.


The Golden Trout

Grand Prize


The Grand Prize for the best film overall will be a Winston 9' 5-weight Boron IIx Limited Edition Conservation Rod with a retail value of $1800. The Winston Conservation Rod is specially made to commemorate the Company's 80th anniversary. Each Limited Edition Conservation Rod is individually numbered and features a Rainbow Trout hand-painted by a Winston artist. In addition, each rod comes with a James Prosek signed and numbered 11"x14" Rainbow Trout Limited Edition print (print numbers to correspond with rod number). The Limited Edition Conservation series rainbow trout rods and Prosek prints are limited to 100. Winston, on behalf of World Trout, will donate 20% of the value of the rod to the conservation project of the winner's choice.
