Fly Reel Description:
A reel for those that like to combine modern performance with the aesthetics of years gone by. These reels are made from precision machined 100% aerospace bar stock aluminum and stainless steel construction for great strength and corrosion protection, with sealed stainless steel ball bearings and a sealed drag mechanism. The classic silver and black colours are deeply anodized creating a rich and long lasting finish, and with significant porting are one of the lightest reels in their class.
Each reel features an exposed palming rim for hand control when fighting fish, even if not required with the precision drag reels.
Normally retails at $195
Fly Line Description:
If you had to have one fly line to get started on, this would be the one. And for a backup. And for an experienced fly fisherman... This is a great all round fly line for your standard cold water conditions such as trout and salmon fishing. The taper design gives great loop stability at distance, a profile that allows a rod to load at close range and a front taper that delivers great presentation of flies between sizes #22 and #2.

Fly Box Description:
For those of you that like to mix traditional and modern for aesthetics and performance, we've brought you the classic bamboo fly box!
The bamboo is tough, smooth, and hard-wearing. It looks like a throwback from the past and you'll feel just a little bit special opening up your box of hand-tied dries on that small stream that you've hiked all day to reach. Not that anyone else will be there to appreciate it, but you'll know.
It's easy to open and close in all conditions with it's magnetic release, and has enough storage to throw in all your dries and nymphs for that stream you've been dreaming about going back to for the last 6 months.
Slit foam on both sides allows storage of a heap of flies, and the slightly broader than normal profile won't result in your lovely dries getting squashed whenever you close the lid.
This box comes in three different variations:
- Slit foam on both sides
- Slit foam on one side and magnetic bamboo compartments on other
- Small profile with slit foam one side, magnetic compartment on other
