New gear from Wy­ch­wood & more

Leeda and Rogue also re­veals tackle for 2017

Angling Times (UK) - - WELCOME -

IT WASN’T just match tackle that was un­veiled at the re­cent Leeda trade show – big-carp and specialist brands Wy­ch­wood and Rogue also show­cased plenty of stun­ning new kit.

A high­light was the lat­est Wy­ch­wood Sys­tem Se­lect luggage range, sure to prove hugely pop­u­lar with the mod­ern carper as it of­fers a unique in­ter­change­able per­for­mance and a ro­bust build.

Rogue con­tin­ues to of­fer an­glers on a tight bud­get qual­ity kit at sen­si­ble prices, and this is re­flected in its lat­est range of FS and FD reels.


DON’T be un­der the il­lu­sion that th­ese new Rogue reels are just for carp an­glers – the smaller 6500 mod­els are ideal tools for fish­ing the feeder at dis­tance from bream when cast­ing and wind­ing power are es­sen­tial.

Avail­able as front drag or freespool mod­els, the reels are amaz­ing value and built to last. The larger 7500 ver­sions are just per­fect for all as­pects of carp fish­ing, whether it’s a dis­tance throw with big leads or a more ca­sual ‘pub chuck’ on small lakes.

Price: £42.99


WY­CH­WOOD’S su­per value A ver­sions of the bril­liant en­try-level 101 rods com­ple­ment the ex­ist­ing range, of­fer­ing carpers slim­line shrink-wrapped cork or EVA-han­dled 12ft rods with test curves of 2.75lb, 3lb, 3.25lb and 3.5lb.

Built around the su­perb orig­i­nal multi-lay­ered blank, there’s a 50mm butt ring on the three heav­ier rods, with a 40mm ring on the 2.75lb ver­sion. All come with top qual­ity guides and a use­ful car­bon line clip.

Price: £59.99


TURN your brolly into a se­cure and wa­ter­tight shel­ter in a mat­ter of min­utes with one of th­ese overwraps. With a 10,000mm hy­dro­static head, am­ple alu­minium peg­ging points and solid or mozzie mesh front door op­tions which can be rolled up or used ‘let­ter­box’ style, the sides roll back to let you to fish with a full open front if you so wish.

The overwraps are made from hard-wear­ing HD Rip­stop ma­te­rial for years of use. Two sizes, 50mm and 60mm, are avail­able to fit the brolly size that’s right for you.

Price: 60ins £109.99, 50ins £99.99


THERE’S more luggage in this new range than you can shake a stick at, with ev­ery­thing from a huge ruck­sack to a small lead bag.

Sure to be a big hit with carp an­glers and mo­bile spec­i­men hunters alike, the clever de­sign sees pouches fit­ting into the outer pock­ets of the three holdalls, al­low­ing you to swap be­tween them from ses­sion to ses­sion so you’re not car­ry­ing loads of gear.

The Rover Car­ryall is for short-ses­sion an­glers, the Short Haul Car­ryall gives you slightly more room, and the Long Haul Car­ryall is for the an­gler plan­ning to camp out for a few days.

If you pre­fer, there are two ruck­sacks – Rover and Short Haul – for rov­ing tac­tics on rivers and lakes. Pouches run from a small Lead/ Tackle Bag to a larger Tackle Or­gan­iser with an in­ter­nal rig board and a hook­bait pouch, along with six tubs.

Wy­ch­wood also of­fers a raised-edge Beanie Mat packed with 40mm foam and a Sling Mat, which folds in half with a zip run­ning around the perime­ter for ul­ti­mate fish safety when re­turn­ing them to the wa­ter.

Rod stor­age is taken care of with a 12ft Rod Sleeve and a Five-rod Quiver for the trav­el­ling an­gler.

Price: £9.99-£69.99
