Weather-Beating Jacket that’s Sure to Get You Noticed!

Weather-Beating Jacket that’s Sure to Get You Noticed!

Vision Vene jacket £249 at www.guideflyfishing.co.uk

While some anglers prefer to blend in with their surroundings there are others who like to make a statement – and you can certainly do that with this Vene jacket.

The bright red tartan design means you won’t go unnoticed – but if you think the fish will be put off don’t be: I’ve worn this jacket all season from the boat and bank and have had plenty of fish to the net. The jacket is made from Vision’s waterproof and breathable F4 extra durable fabric and all seams have been taped. Read more about Weather-Beating Jacket that’s Sure to Get You Noticed!

Tactical rods with a surprise in store

Everything from rods to jackets & indicators

Hardy Zephrus Sintrix FWS rods from £549 www.hardyfishing.com

THERE are 10 models in Hardy’s FWS (freshwater series) rod range from an 8ft 3wt at £499 to a 10ft 5wt at £649 and all are made from the 440 Sintrix as the Zephrus AWS (all wat series) rods that I reviewed in issue 482.

They also feature the same high quality fittings including Fuji titanium stripping guides and black pearl recoil single leg snakes. The two rods that I had on test were the 10ft 5wt and the 9ft 6wt and both have a ‘T’ designation, which means they have been designed with tactical situations in mind.

Where To Fish In AWE

Where To Fish In AWE

Editor Russell Hill escapes to the Highlands for a hotel break near Loch Awe – home of the British record ferox!

Majestic Ben Lui and a peaceful bay with tree-topped islands provide the view from my hotel window. It’s such a wonderful backdrop and one that the Ardanaiseig Hotel is justly proud of. The luxury accommodation is dwarfed by three mountains of 3,000 feet or more (Munros) and the vast Loch Awe, whose mysterious waters are home to huge pike, salmon, wild browns, ferox trout, perch, roach and many other species. Indeed, the British record, rod-caught ferox trout of 31lb 11oz was taken from Loch Awe by Brian Rutland in 2002. Brian actually then beat his own record by a pound during another session but chose to return the incredible fish. Check fishing season dates for any species you’re after before fishing as they do vary a bit. Read more about Where To Fish In AWE
