Default Winston BIIt wanted

Hello all.

I'm back in the market for a BIIt, if anyone has one that they'd sell.

Looking for an 8ft 4wt in good condition.

Please PM if you have anything.

You tried for over a year to sell the one you had, and now you want another.

I have never cast/fished with one; is it a hot and cold rod?

Hi John. Not really... it's not that great in the Cotswolds... but I'm prepared to go down to Dorset and Devon this season, so I want to be reunited with an old friend.

It's a great rod - it was me that blew hot and cold about carrying on fly fishing after moving south a few years ago and then a family bereavement.

Someone above mentioned posting in the wanted section (which I overlooked)... I'll do that.

Kevin, sorry to hear about your bereavement. Hope you're OK and you get that 4wt. I think I got mine in the US but I have been moving to long rods more and more and only fish shorter rods on small streams.

do you have a preferred length? I find the 8 foot an awkward length but have little issues with 8'6" and higher or 7'6" down to about 6'6" after which they (the ones I have used) feel a little stubby to me.

I managed to buy Alex's BIIX 8ft 6in 3#. I can't understand why there isn't more love for these rods in the UK. Not fast as many rods, not slow just a pleasant quick recovering and precise rod with a beautiful light progressive action.

Will have to try the BIIT

Neither can I Dave, not as highly esteemed as the T, but in my view more versatile. Pleased to report the Recon is up and running and had a good day out on the Lambourn
