Rob and Lew Sell Fly Rods
The Daily Times of New Mexico has an article that tells us the origins of the R. L. Winston Company's name. It seems R.L. Winston was not a real person but the two guys who founded the company, Robert and Lew. Knowing this seems to take away a bit of the elegance of the whole R.L. Winston rod thing for me. Almost like finding out Santa Claus and the Easter Bunny were really two guys named Sam and Earl.
