Sea Angler - March Digital Sampler


REVEALED New Gear KORUM POWER LANDING NET COMBO RRP: From £39.99 These new 36in triangle landing nets are perfect when targeting carp to 20lb-plus or other larger specimens such as tench, bream and barbel. The two-piece handle enables the net to pack down compactly which makes storage and transportation easier. The net is made from a super soft 5mm micro mesh with the area around the rim consisting of a carp-sack style material. The handle has shrink wrap sections at the butt and tip for a more secure grip and the strong spreader block has isotope slots for when night fishing. Supplied in a robust nylon stink sleeve. NASH HOOKS RRP: £4.99 Nash has started the year with the release of three new patterns of hooks. The unique Nash Claw is radically different to any other hook on the market with its angular design. This restricts movement of the hook once it has penetrated a carp’s mouth, which not only reduces hook pulls but minimises the chances of mouth damage. The Flota Claw features the same design as the Claw but in a finer wire gauge, making it perfect for use with floaters and zig rigs. Longshank hooks are renowned for their hooking potential, and work well with particle or small plastic baits. The point section, from where it exits the gape, faces slightly towards the eye, offering improved hook-holds. The Claw and Twister Longshank are available in sizes 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 and 10, and the Flota Claw in sizes 6, 7, 8 and 10. All three come in microbarbed and barbless versions. SAVAGE GEAR 4D RATTLE TROUT LURES RRP: £9.99 These lifelike lures have added DNA scent, and a slotted area can be filled with dissolvable paste or pellets to enhance the attraction given off. That, plus a rolling, tail-rattling action, makes them irresistible to predators. In Dark Brown, Golden Albino, and Rainbow Trout versions. 82 • IYCF Issue 334

AVID STORMSHIELD BEDCHAIR COVER RRP: £66.99 TACKLE When the weather starts to improve many long session anglers, especially those who need to travel light, prefer to do away with a shelter and fish under the stars. If you’re one of these hardy souls, the Avid Stormshield Bedchair Cover could be a worthwhile investment in preparation of the warmer months ahead. The Stormshield fabric will keep your bedchair and sleeping bag dry in even the heaviest of downpours. The cover can be attached to your bedchair with the heavy duty clips at the bottom end, while at the top there are metal eyelets to secure a bankstick or storm pole and lift the cover at the head end to create a shelter. E-S-P 25K QUILTED WATERPROOF CLOTHING RRP: From £109 A new range of clothing from top carp brand E-S-P offers salopettes (£149), trousers (£109) and jacket (£149). All three give all-weather protection and comfort thanks to a rip-stop shell with a 25,000mm hydrostatic head and 10,000g breathability. The jacket has a comfortable cut with an insulated waffle lining. A high collar and peaked adjustable hood help to keep the elements at bay. Adjustable cuffs, deep handwarmer pockets and an internal zipped security pocket make this a great bit of kit for the winter. The salopettes have a warm insulated lining but are still lightweight and comfortable to move around in. Key features include reinforced double layered material on the knees, handwarmer pockets, side access zip and water-resistant boot zips. The waterproof trousers complement the 25K Quilted jacket with an elasticated adjustable waistband, zipped handwarmer/security pockets and easy-on boot zips. The knees are double reinforced for extra durability and protection. All three items are available in sizes S – 3XL. BLUE FOX VIBRAX ORIGINAL SPINNER RRP: From £3.25 With a patented two-part body which emits fish attracting low-frequency vibrations, the Vibrax Original spinner warrants a place in every lure anglers box. It features extremely sharp VMC hooks which have been tempered for strength and provide rapid penetration. With an anti linetwist design, the brass gear is free turning and rattles when rubbing against the bell. Available in machined brass, silver or copper plated mainbody and blade finishes, in blades sizes 0 – 6 and weights 3g to 18g. CHUB SAT-A-LITE BIVVY LIGHT RC DELUXE RRP: £29.99 A handy piece of kit for those long hours of darkness. This remote controlled light has three brightness settings with red and white colour options. The red option is great for when added stealth is required. It has a magnetic attachment system for fixing to any shelter and is supplied with a USB charging cable. Powered by LEDs from leading LED developer Cree Inc, it also features a 150 lumens torch option and has a burn time of up to 8 hours. RINGERS RIDDLE RRP: £19.99 This new groundbait bucket and riddle features a stainless 2.4mm mesh which is perfect for riddling off fine groundbaits. It fits inside any standard 17-litre bucket and, best of all, it will comfortably hold 2kg-plus of wetted groundbait without any risk of spillage. DRENNAN BIG GRIPPA STOPS RRP: £1.35 This new larger version of Drennan’s tapered float stops has a bulbous end making a perfect stop for sliding swivel rings, or trapping large pellet wagglers in place. Two or three stops in line prevent unwanted movement, but easy adjustment makes them ideal for use with link legers, bombs and small feeders. In tough, forgiving rubber, they come on a wire loop that effortlessly transfers them on to the line. IYCF February 13 – March 13, 2018 • 83
