ESSENTIAL KIT ON SALE NOW
Super new F1 nets by MAP
TRICKY commercials demand these super new F1 landing net heads from MAP. They come in 12ins and 14ins versions, and feature anodised, ultra-lightweight alloy frames.
Super-fine bottom meshing helps to prevent your hookpoints from snagging, while the larger-diameter mesh sides allow the nets to be dragged quickly through the water. Price: 12ins £12.99, 14ins £13.99
More bites with Shimano Aero reel line
FLUOROCARBON mainlines all but disappear in the water, bringing extra bites when the going gets tough – and Shimano Aero Fluorocarbon is as good an example as you will find.
With high abrasion-resistance and knot strength, it’s just soft enough not to keep jumping off the reel spool in annoying coils. In 12lb (0.30mm) and 16lb (0.35mm) on 500m bulk spools. Price: £25
Warmth and comfort guaranteed...
FOX has recently released this ace three-season Warrior sleeping bag which is ideal for use in late spring, summer and early autumn.
Made from a soft-touch polyester fabric, with a matching lining for ease of movement inside the bag, warmth and comfort are virtually guaranteed thanks to oversized internal and external baffles which keep warm air in and cold air out.
Other features include elasticated hoods at the head and foot ends, plus an elasticated strap in the middle to help secure the bag to the bed. It comes complete with a stash bag. Price: £52.99
Shine a light with Wychood bait tools
NEW from big-carp brand Wychwood are these clever glow-in-the-dark baiting tools.
The full Firefly kit consists of a safety baiting needle – strong enough to pierce the hardest of baits – a stainless steel bait drill for nuts, mixers and hard hookbaits, a long gated stringer needle that lends itself well to use with PVA sticks and stringers without snagging, and a fine splicing needle for leadcore. This doubles as a device for attaching soft, small baits to a hair rig. Price: £9.99
