McLean Weigh Trout Net

McLean Short Handle Weigh Trout NetIf you’re going away on holiday to a destination where you can go trout fishing, even if it’s only for a few hours a day and the chances of catching a big trout are there, you will want to weigh it and release it unless you knock it one the head to eat, back at the accommodation you still can’t weight it. So this is where the McLean Short Handle Weigh Net comes in handy, weighing up to 6.5lbs in 2 oz increments it should satisfy most situations, I know most people measure trout these days but it’s nice to know how much that trout weighs,if the trout are bigger try the sea-trout net!

Loop Opti Fly Lines

In fly fishing, presentation is the name of the game. Long, short, deep, shallow, fast, slow, angled, upstream, downstream, overhandcast, underhandcast, the list is endless.
Combine the right line with the right gear in the right environment and you have a sensible combination that gives you an advantage over the fish. Different conditions, gear and casting technique requires carefully selected lines. With the different tapers, lengths and weights which Loop Opti Fly Lines offer you have a multitude of precise tools at your disposal. Important! Use WF3 for a #3 rod, and so on.

Loop Opti Stream Fly Lines

Loop Opti Stream Fly Line

The Opti Stream is precisely as the name indicates: for flowing water. The new taper is designed for extreme ease in both underhand and overhand casting. Easy to pickup and shoot overhand and yet perfectly balanced for tight, underhand casts. Head length varies between 7.1m – 9.1m depending upon line weight.
Colour: Amber/White Floating. Total length: 27 m. Available in weights 2 – 9.

Loop Opti Creek Fly Lines

Loop Opti Creek Floating Fly Lines

Loop’s Opti Creek line could be deemed the nemesis of vigilant fish. The line is a development of the Opti Stream Line and has a somewhat shorter head for better feeling and presentation. You get the advantage over the fish. Not the other way around. The taper is refined for an even better presentation and is suited both for over and underhandcasts. For small running waters, this is the line you need.
Opti Creek WF2 – WF4 Floating. Length: 15m.

Loop Opti Stillwater Fly Lines

Loop Opti Stillwater Floating Fly Line

The Opti Stillwater fly line is designed for lake fishing. The new tapers on this line mean it casts a long way and is designed to set the fly down with precision at enormous distances!

Polarized Sunglasses

Polarized lenses enhance visibility and reduce glare in all conditions and are must for any fishing trip, they reduce eye strain (I learnt this one the hard way from when I used to spend hours sitting in a boat in the sunshine). They also help you to spot fish that you would not see without them. As with most things the more you pay the better the quality, Eye Level are very good entry-level sunglasses, I use their amber clip-ons.
