STROFT FC1 Flurocarbon Tippet $16.45
Stroft FC1 100% Fluorocarbon Tippet Material Waku's new fluorocarbon material is the best in test according to the EFFTA. Stroft FC1 has an exceptionally high knot strength and the highest breaking strains that the EFTTA have as yet been able to confirm for lines made from 100% fluorocarbon. Stroft have paid particular attention to the sensitivity and feed-back as well as the resistance to abrasion. Peak performance can be expected in both these properties, even though the line can not be classed as particularly hard, they have low elasticity and are best described as being supple and tough.

Built Epic ToughEpic glass rods are incredibly tough. Our S2 FastGlass II has a far higher strength-to-weight ratio than Carbon fibre (graphite) rods. Epic FastGlass rods can endure more acute and severe bends than the equivalent Carbon fibre or even regular S2 glass, tip sections are stronger and far less susceptible to breakages due to high-sticking and problematic rod angles when pulling against load.

Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Sedge most celebrated trout flies. Best trout flies
Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Sedge $2.99
Bob Wyatt's Deer Hair Sedge - Bob Wyatt's most celebrated trout flies. Bob Wyatt has fly-fished for trout in North America, Europe and New Zealand since the 1950s.  His book, Trout Hunting, challenged some conventional thinking regarding how trout work, and presented some fresh insights on why some great old flies continue to catch fish after a century or more of increasing fishing pressure.  The reason is that, contrary to much expert opinion, trout are not getting smarter.  If presented well, some fly designs are basically irresistible to a feeding trout.   Over fifty years of fly fishing has convinced Wyatt that a few basic designs will cover almost any fishing situation, and in most cases will catch fish better than specific patterns created for the so-called ‘selective trout’.  The reason they work so well is because of the way a trout’s brain works.  These fly designs are based on the most important ‘triggers’ to a trout’s feeding response – a fly’s size, shape and posture in the water.  In fact, Wyatt regards a suggestive impression of a trout’s food to be far more effective than a close copy imitation. Presentation is the key.  Well proven for fly fishing in New Zealand, with these flies you can confidently fish for trout, anywhere they swim. These are some of most effective fly fishing flies ever tied. Time proven patterns tied traditional style on competition grade hooks using all natural materials. - The World famous DHS - The only Dry Fly you will ever need to carry - Tied Exclusively for Swift under licence from Bob, these are the highest quality flies tied  using only the best materials on the very best Hanak barbless competition Hooks. These hooks are sticky sharp! * For information about these flies and how best to fish them, take a look at our blog here > Delivered in our classic tin fly box "Box - O - Flies"
