Getting a Rise

Ever feel just a little bit cramped in your fishing shirt? Or maybe the classic laundry-basket creased look is just not your thing? And what about getting collar-smacked on those occasions when you find yourself on a fast boat? If you’re not crazy about these things, but you do like qualities like sun protection, moisture-wicking, and quick-drying fabric, a custom-cut high collar and extended tail, come check out the RISE TECHNICAL FISHING T. Available in Aqua, Cobalt and Slate, it’s an ideal blend of practicality and style! And at R390 it won’t break the bank either!

Sage does it again!

The Sage ONE scooped the coveted “Best new Fly Rod” award at last years EFFTEX show against some stiff opposition. This year, Sage did it again with their new rod range, the CIRCA. By migrating their in-house “Konnetic” technology into this family of slow-actioned rods, Sage clearly states that their focus is not only on faster-actioned, stiffer rods. The CIRCA range includes a 2-weight in 7’9″, 3- and 4-weights in 7’9″ and 8’9″ and a 5-weight in 8’9″ and replaces the current ZXL range. ZXL lovers out there don’t fret – if you do break your rod, Sage will replace your broken section with another IN THE SAME RANGE, in other words your ZXL will remain a ZXL until you feel like replacing it. And when you get to feel the CIRCA, you may just be tempted!

Strike indicator continued…

Well, our indicators have arrived and we’ve had a chance to play with them. I can tell you that this indicator system is the most versatile I’ve seen. It’s very quick to apply and just as quick to remove. It grips well enough to not move during the cast but still allows you to reposition it under tension. No line damage, no kinks, no hassle! I know I’m going to love using this system when next we go after yellows in the Richtersveld!

A must-have for the indicator fisherman

Some fly fishing tools are just indispensable, and this might turn out to be another one of them. A yarn indicator system that floats well, repositions easily, doesn’t require knotting or kinking the line and – wait for it – is re-usable! Sounds too good to be true? Well, in a week or so we’ll find out!
