Leeda and Rogue also reveals tackle for 2017
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.

WYCHWOOD SYSTEM SELECT LUGGAGE
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.
