From Winston:

The R.L.Winston Rod Company in Twin Bridges, Montana, is pleased to announce today that Dave Chouinard has joined the Winston Pro Advisor Team as a Saltwater Specialist.

“Dave brings an extraordinary level of professionalism and passion to Winston’s Pro Advisory Team. His knowledge, scope and skills as an expert saltwater angler will be a great asset for Winston in the years ahead.”

                                                            Annette Mclean, Head of Operations and Rod Design

For over 25 years Dave has been a passionate fly shop owner, guide, instructor and fly fishing industry sales rep. At the age of 21, he opened his first fly shop in the northeast, The Fly Hatch, which was well known as one of the finest fly shops in the country. Then, in 2008 he migrated south to Tampa, Florida and opened The Tampa Angler pro shop and guide service on the west coast of Florida. Today, Dave continues to be an active saltwater flats guide in the Tampa area as well as the owner of Chouinard Outdoor Associates, a leading fly fishing industry rep group in the southeast. Dave prides himself as a top industry instructor having conducted over 2000 individual casting lessons and now a co-instructor at The Black Fly Lodge Advanced Saltwater Fly Fishing School in Abaco, Bahamas.

When asked how he felt about becoming a Winston Pro Advisor, Dave said,

“I am truly honored to join the Winston Pro Advisor team. As a lifelong fly angler, fly shop owner, guide and casting instructor, Winston has always been at the forefront of precision, quality and design. Winston rods have always been known for their beauty and almost magical feel, but their story goes way beyond that. Being a former fly shop owner, I know how much the industry means to them and the importance that fly shops make to the sport. I also believe the Winston history makes me and every devoted fly fisherman warm inside. I look forward to working closely with Winston from 2500 miles away on the west coast of Florida, helping them push saltwater performance to unforeseen levels!”
