Very affordable Orvis Reels

The Orvis Clearwater and Encounter Large Arbour Reels

Are very good value according to Fly Fishing & Fly Tying, in fact they say that the Encounter is a Bargain workhorse reel. They both come in two sizes II and IV, the II reels take a WF5 line with 100 yards of backing and the IV reels take a WF8 line with 200 yards of backing.

Orvis Encounter Large Arbor Fly Reels
The all new Orvis Encounter Large Arbor is a value-priced fly reel with the all the credentials of a much higher-priced large arbor. Made of a molded composite, the Encounter is extremely lightweight,
but the inline, Rulon to stainless, stacked disc drag system is the most powerful in its price class.
Easy right- and left-hand conversion with a positive click drag knob to allow for consistent drag settings. For the budget-minded angler or a first fly reel,
the Orvis Encounter LA is a no-compromise option.

Encounter LA II for line weights 3-5, 4.3 oz., 3 3/8″ diameter.
Encounter LA IV for line weights 6-9, 4.9 oz., 3 7/8″ diameter.

Orvis Clearwater Large Arbor Reels
Finally, a die-cast aluminium large arbor that’s lightweight enough to balance properly with your favourite rod. Two years in design and development and with a powerful disc drag that can hold its own with high-performance machined reels, the all new Clearwater Large Arbor cost significantly less than its machined cousins, but has not only the looks, but the guts of a higher priced version. Easily converted to either left- or right-hand retrieve, the Clearwater has a positive click drag knob for consistent settings every time. Whether you’re looking for your first large arbor, fishing on a budget, or want a spare or two in the bag, the new Clearwater Large Arbor can handle anything a machined reel can and completely changes the game in
die-cast reels.
Clearwater LA II for line weights 3-5, 5.6 oz., 3 3/8″ diameter.
Clearwater LA IV for line weights 6-9, 6.3 oz., 3 7/8″ diameter.

Nymph Rods for Grayling

Many of us will have turned our attention to Grayling now that the Trout season is over and will be fishing nymphs, unless you are lucky enough to hit a hatch of LDOs or midges.
Here is a selection of rods to suit Leader to Hand, Bugging or Klink & Dink from Snowbee, Vision, Loop, Orvis and Marryat. All 10′ or over and in 2# to 4#.

Snowbee Diamond Fly Rods 10′ 3# and 4# 4-Pc

Snowbee Diamond RodThese new longer, lower line weight models, will appeal particularly to river fishers in central and eastern Europe, the home of Czech nymphing techniques. However, they will also find favour with the increasing number of anglers switching to lighter line classes and continental methods. The Diamond range features fast action 4-pce blanks finished in a lustrous deep olive colour, with self colour whippings. Subtle gold graphics and single bands of gold on each ring whipping, give these rods a classic appeal. The quality, brushed aluminium reel seats have olive-green burl wood insert, complementing the colour of the blanks.

Snowbee Prestige 10′ 2# 3# and 4# Fly Rods

The return of the Prestige fly rods in 4 and 6 piece blanks proved a very popular move, building on the pedigree of the original Prestige range, way back in 1997. We have completely upgraded the range, with new, lighter blanks and an even crisper action.
• 6 or 4-piece ultra lightweight carbon blanks
Snowbee Prestige Rods• Snowbee tri-modulus carbon technology
• Fast action with high lift snakes for extreme distance casting
• Deep bronze finish with matching whippings
• Anodised silver/gold aluminium reel seat with maple burl wood inserts
• Matching cotton drill rod bag
• Aluminium rod tube
• Snowbee Original Purchaser Lifetime Guarantee
With oversize ‘Sic’ lined stripper rings, hard chrome, high lift snakes and oversize hay-fork tip ring for maximum line speed, the overall finish simply oozes casting performance.
Every rod comes complete with matching olive cotton-drill rod bag and a strong Cordura covered rod tube embossed with our leather ‘fly’ logo.

Vision Nite Catapult 10′ 3/4# Fly Rods

Vision Nite Fly RodsOur new Nite Catapult models are more powerful. Built on T30, 3 piece blanks with faster taper to help generate maximum line speed. When you’re under pressure to cast farther, fish harder and catch more, these rods will not let you down.
Nite Catapult series extends into Saltwater/Specialist models superb for pike,
single-handed salmon and of course, saltwater fishing at home and abroad.
Nite Catapult rods are finished in a smart Silver-Grey over a partly sanded blank.
• 3 – piece Nite Catapult
• Matt surface joints
• PB Aero stripping guides
• Hard chrome snakes
• Saltwater proof aluminium reel seat in #7 plus rods
• Tiger wood reel seat in #3 – #6 rods
• Fast mid – flex action
• Fast mid/tip action (catapult)
• Matching cordura rod tube

Vision Cult 10′ 8″ 3# and 11′ 1″ 4# Fly Rods

Vision Cult Fly Rods• 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.
We’ve made these rods for the thinking angler though, and believe that Cult will offer you performance where it was lacking before.

Vision Mag 10′ 3/4# Fly Rods

Vision Mag Fly RodsThe fastest of all Vision rods. These tip action, four piece rods will surprise you with their great balance and looks. The blanks are made using the latest Japanese high modulus graphite and all components are nothing but the best. The series consists of three 9’ rods and five 10’ rods to cover a wide range of fishing situations. Metallic olive finish with some small orange details will make these rods to differ from the mass.
Longer 10’ rods were initially designed for two main purposes: lighter rods for short line long leader river fishing in competitions (and elsewhere) and heavier classes especially for the demanding stillwater and reservoir fishing (multiple flies, long leaders, etc).
All of them have full wells handles (lighter classes smaller ones) and 6/7 and 7/8 class rods have additionally a small fighting butt which might come handy if you happen to hook a real monster.
If you like fast action rods and you are looking for a new high-quality and great looking fishing companion for your numerous trips to waters near and far, look no more. These four-piece olive beauties will fit nicely into you hand and in your bag.

Loop OPTi Peak 11′ 3# and 4# Fly Rods

Loop Opti Peak Fly RodsThe OptiPeak was designed cast a light line, yet handle big fish.

Rapala Lures for Salmon

Rapala Countdown Lures

Rapala Countdown Lures

With the end of the Salmon Season only a week away in most parts of the West Country and the rivers up and coloured, the best chance will be spinning! This is where the Rapala Lures come in, they are tried and tested and come in a good range of sizes and colours.
As an added bonus we have
25% Off the Marked Price of Selected Rapala Lures Whilst Stocks Last!

Some of us in the West Country have another bonus in the fact that a couple of rivers have a late run of Salmon and these rivers are open until December 15th. As I can’t see any end to the wet weather that’s over 2 months of spinning, so stock up now!

Rapala Count Down – Sinking
Consistently reach suspended fish at any depth with the Count Down method. The controlled depth technique was introduced to the world with this slow sinking (approximately 30 cm / sec.) lure, and to this day is the standard by which all others are measured. Whether the fish are suspending at certain depths near the weed tops or on bottom structure, the CountDown can get you to them over and over.
The lure is weighted for long casts and balanced perfectly for a horizontal sinking position. The CD01 size is specifically designed for smaller and wary fish.



Rapala Original Floater

Rapala Original Floater

Rapala Original Floater

The first and still the number one “go-to” lure. Lauri Rapala had no idea the impact his creation would have on the fishing world. Its wounded minnow action is irresistible to fish. Decades after its creation millions of anglers still rely on the Original Floater – one of the most versatile lures ever made. This is the world’s best selling lure.














Rapala Jointed Lures

Rapala Jointed Floating Minnow


Rapala Jointed Floating Minnow
With its slight exaggeration of Rapala’s unique baitfish-in-distress behavior, the Jointed is ideally suited to the extremely slow retrieve required to trigger sluggish, finicky fish. Extra noise and action produced by the jointed body helps wake up the fish in poor visibility.
