HE­LIOS 3D 9FT FIVE-WEIGHT ROD £849

Al­though there are many mod­els avail­able, the He­lios 3D rods are renowned for their power and ac­cu­racy at dis­tance. The 9ft fiveweight is prob­a­bly as close as it gets to the per­fect all-rounder for just about any trout-fish­ing sce­nario you will en­counter around the world. He­lios 3 is a great leap for­wards in rod-mak­ing tech­nol­ogy. Track­ing has been im­proved by much re­duced os­cil­la­tion and oval­i­sa­tion. As a re­sult, max­i­mum en­ergy is trans­ferred dur­ing the cast.

LONG-SLEEVED OPEN-AIR CASTER SHIRT £79

This light and highly ven­ti­lated shirt will keep you cool and shield your skin from the sun. It has a mesh-lined back and up­per chest, roll-up sleeve tabs, and a sun­glasses cleaning cloth in the shirt­tail. There’s also a zipped se­cu­rity pocket and UPF 40 sun pro­tec­tion. Avail­able in moss, white, pale or­ange, sky blue, navy or red.

ULTRALIGHT WAD­ING BOOTS £179

Dura­bil­ity and per­for­mance with­out heft. Ex­cel­lent for ne­go­ti­at­ing air­line weight re­stric­tions and re­duc­ing the en­ergy ex­pended when walk­ing. The up­per is made from fast-dry­ing Clar­ino, which has a bet­ter strengthto-weight ra­tio than leather. A Vi­bram EVA mid­sole gives com­fort over tough ter­rain. Vi­bram out­sole has Orvis’s lug pat­tern for solid trac­tion. Ac­cepts studs. Men’s and women’s styles avail­able in many sizes.

ULTRALIGHT WAD­ING JACKET £249

A smart, min­i­mal­ist jacket that packs down so that it can eas­ily be car­ried in a small day bag. It’s made from a two-way stretch, three-layer shell that’s wa­ter­proof and wind­proof.
