Vision Hopper Wading Boots

If you want a pair of light weight wading boots for travel or just because you like boots that don’t feel like a ton of bricks when you hiking up a river, then these are the boots for you!

Hopper wading boots are very light in weight and remind you more of the hiking boots. They are made out of strong nylon material and re-enforced with rubber bumper.
The shoe opens up wide so it is very easy to put on and the nylon lace loops hold the laces while you tighten them up. High design with neoprene cushioning maximizes the comfort and support. Hoppers are available with either full felt or Vibram Idrogrip rubber sole with tungsten studs. The Vibram option is especially useful if you are going to be travelling to a country where felt soles are banned to minimise the spread of invasive species.

Lamson Reels 2

Lamson Konic

• Pressure Cast ALDC12 Aluminium.
• Skim cut on CNC machines.
• Patented conical drag system.
• Aluminium + stainless structure.
• Solid polyurethane coating.
• Very low start up inertia.
• Large arbour format.
• Lifetime Warranty.

The drag system in Konic uses the same fully machined parts, as the drag used in the £350+ Waterworks reels or any of our other high-end reels. Pressure Casting with molten ALDC12 aluminum alloy injected at 1,080 kgs pressure to ensure consistent, smooth and strong parts. Contrast this method with the Gravity Casting used by competitors. Frame and spool are solid single-part pieces. Again, contrast this with 2-part cast spools that our competition use. We use a solid polyurethane coating to provide a finish that is very resistant to gouging and abrasion rather than weaker electrostatic paints that many competitive reels use. The Konic is a lightweight, true large arbor reel.

Bass Fishing

Three of us went Bass Fishing in North Devon on Saturday and had a tremendous day. To start with we were a bit worried that the estuary would still be coloured after all the rain, but although there was still some colour in the water, you could see your boots when you were knee deep! Best of all the Bass could see the flies. I had the first fish on my third cast and soon all three of us were catching.

Between the three of us we were using a variety of tackle, rods by Snowbee and Orvis, reels by Vision and Orvis, lines by Loop and flies by Turrell, Fulling Mill and me!

We fished the tide down and then the first few hours of the flood, all of us soon lost count of the number of fish we were catching and many times we would all have fish on. Most of the fish were in the 10 to 12″ range with the biggest at 14″ with some tiddlers.

With all fish released, we made the long walk back to the car park and agreed that it had been a splendid day and that a swift half on the way home was in order!

Vision Cult Rods

If you fish rivers and small streams these rods are designed to do just that, tight spots call for roll casts, side casts and catapult casts, this is where you need a full action rod!
• High modulus Ultra-slim and sensitive blanks
• 4 – and 3 – piece models
• Aero stripping guides
• Hard chrome snakes
• Half wells handle & nickel silver reel seat with cork insert in #3 – #6 rods
• Cigar handle & nickel silver slide reel seat in #2 rods
• Full – flex action
• Matching Cordura tube
• Vision Five Year Extended Warranty

Cult rods have a deep full-flex action and they are at their best in river fishing or close range work to wary fish in still water. These rods are easy to load, and will do so with a much shorter line than many of the more tip-flex rod series currently on offer.
There is so much feel with Cult: Both in loading the rod when casting and when playing fish. These rods will better protect your light tippet and the smallest/finest hooks.

Beautifully finished and incredibly slim High modulus blanks still deliver the performance we’ve come to expect. The more you ask of these rods, the more they will deliver and long range fishing is still easily attainable with #5 and #6 weight models. We’ve made these rods for the thinking angler though, and believe that Cult will offer you performance where it was lacking before.

A natural progression in the series, Cult fiber rods are built from high quality glass fibre
to benefit from its’ more moderate loading/unloading rates compared to graphite.
These sensitive yet versatile rods will begin to load with the shortest length of line, and deliver your fly not only with delicacy, but with accuracy and consistency that can give
you the edge. Finished in mahogany with matching whippings.

Loop Fly Lines

Having bought these three different lines, I have been trying them out! When I’ve been able to get out!
The first one is the Xact Floating WF4 in a lovely Moss Green colour, I dislike white or any bright coloured lines for general trout fishing in rivers, this is now my standard river trout line.

As the head is only 8.5m this loads the rod very quickly, which is great for tight river fishing, but is delicate enough for stealthy fishing!

The next is the Loop Evotec 100 Floating WF6 which I use for estuary fishing for bass and mullet, it is also used for small stillwaters and reservoir fishing.

This line with its 10m head cast a long distance with ease and is a joy to use!

The last line is the Evotec 85 Floating WF7, this is my sea trout line so I don’t mind it being white as this helps at night to locate the line, I do have very good night vision and find I can see the line if there is any light in the night sky.

This line like the Xact has a 8.5m head which helps load the rod quickly both on back casts and the more usual roll cast on our wooded rivers.

Three different lines for three different situations, it pays to pick your lines to match the fishing as well as your rod.
