Welcome<br />

to the <strong>2023</strong> <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

catalogue<br />

As many of you will already have<br />

heard, having been at the helm<br />

of <strong>Snowbee</strong> for nearly 39 years, I<br />

have decided it’s time to 'hang-up<br />

my waders' (figuratively speaking!)<br />

<strong>and</strong> to h<strong>and</strong> over to someone<br />

else, to take the <strong>Snowbee</strong> br<strong>and</strong><br />

on to the next level. Having<br />

reached the gr<strong>and</strong> old age of 67,<br />

I thought it high time, that I spent<br />

more time with the gr<strong>and</strong>children<br />

<strong>and</strong> also, finally had time for more<br />

fishing!<br />

We have therefore signed an<br />

agreement, with local company<br />

SM Group (Europe) Ltd, to take<br />

over from 1st January <strong>2023</strong>. SMG<br />

are a far larger company than<br />

us, with far more resources <strong>and</strong><br />

are currently the biggest marine<br />

electronics distributor in the UK.<br />

Their portfolio, includes over 60<br />

br<strong>and</strong>s in the marine, watersports,<br />

fishing <strong>and</strong> leisure sectors,<br />

making them a perfect fit for<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong>, going forward.<br />

Existing, loyal customers need<br />

not worry. The <strong>Snowbee</strong> team<br />

you have been used to dealing<br />

with will still be here, as will I,<br />

for the time being, doing what I<br />

love most – product design <strong>and</strong><br />

development <strong>and</strong> writing this<br />

catalogue!<br />

As we approach our 39th<br />

anniversary of the UK company, I<br />

am extremely proud of what we<br />

have achieved, having built the<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> br<strong>and</strong> from nothing, to<br />

where it is today. As I have often<br />

said, I put this success down to<br />

three things…product, price <strong>and</strong><br />

customer service! As dedicated<br />

fly fishers ourselves, we design<br />

<strong>and</strong> develop products that you,<br />

the modern day fly fisher actually<br />

wants to use <strong>and</strong> not what we<br />

want to sell you <strong>and</strong> our design<br />

philosophy has always been to<br />

develop new products 'up to a<br />

quality <strong>and</strong> not down to a price!'<br />

We have some exciting new<br />

products for <strong>2023</strong>, details of<br />

which can be seen in our main<br />

introduction on pages 4-5 <strong>and</strong><br />

throughout the catalogue.<br />

Towards the end of 2022,<br />

the EFTTEX (European <strong>Fishing</strong><br />

<strong>Tackle</strong> Trade Exhibition) Best New<br />

Product Competition took place<br />

in Budapest, Hungary <strong>and</strong> we<br />

were delighted to come away<br />

with two Firsts <strong>and</strong> one Runnerup<br />

award, in this hotly contested,<br />

international competition!<br />

See full details on pages 4-5.<br />

I am also delighted to<br />

announce, that due to popular<br />

dem<strong>and</strong>, we have re-introduced<br />

some of our previous <strong>Sea</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong><br />

gear, including the Deep Blue<br />

Boat, Jigging & Spinning Rods,<br />

which built up a cult-following<br />

previously, for their superb action,<br />

performance <strong>and</strong> value for<br />

money. See full details on<br />

pages 98-101.<br />

Thank you for choosing<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> products in the past.<br />

We hope you enjoy the new<br />

catalogue <strong>and</strong> we’d love to hear<br />

your feed-back on it. Should you<br />

choose <strong>Snowbee</strong> products during<br />

the coming season <strong>and</strong> beyond,<br />

we are confident you will have as<br />

much fun using them, as we had<br />

designing <strong>and</strong> testing them.<br />

Tight lines from the <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

<strong>2023</strong>…a new chapter for <strong>Snowbee</strong>!<br />

As <strong>Snowbee</strong> enters a new chapter, we can reflect on some 40 years of great experience <strong>and</strong><br />

successful business which has taken the company <strong>and</strong> br<strong>and</strong> to where we are today.<br />

Since the Covid p<strong>and</strong>emic, the dem<strong>and</strong> for time<br />

in the great outdoors has soared to new levels<br />

<strong>and</strong> fishing, especially fly fishing, has seen a<br />

huge increase in interest, with many newcomers<br />

having taken up the sport. As dem<strong>and</strong> continues<br />

to grow, <strong>Snowbee</strong> joining SMG has also<br />

combined to produce a new ‘route to market’<br />

through a much larger organisation, with<br />

more staff <strong>and</strong> further advanced technology,<br />

to secure the future of the br<strong>and</strong> <strong>and</strong> product<br />

development going forward.This year’s product<br />

range is testament to that <strong>and</strong> follows on the<br />

back of the outst<strong>and</strong>ing success with modern<br />

product design <strong>and</strong> materials, the results of<br />

combined years of experience <strong>and</strong> zest for<br />

success through hard work <strong>and</strong> innovation.<br />

The supply chain issues over the past 2 years<br />

are now receding <strong>and</strong> shipping rates are also<br />

stabilising, so there are many products where we<br />

have been able to reduce the price this year!<br />

At the same time we have worked tirelessly<br />

towards producing a comprehensive product<br />

range, featuring all new materials <strong>and</strong> innovative<br />

design concepts, for the new season. With design<br />

for the modern game angler at the forefront of our<br />

efforts, we are happy to experience once again<br />

an increasingly popular dem<strong>and</strong> for fishing <strong>and</strong><br />

the outdoors, as the <strong>Snowbee</strong> br<strong>and</strong> name grows<br />

in reputation for exceptional quality, service <strong>and</strong><br />

reliability. We have some great new products but<br />

continue working to improve some of the ‘old<br />

favourites’ wherever we can, to bring you the very<br />

latest in cutting-edge fly fishing equipment <strong>and</strong><br />

many associated accessories.<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> rods<br />

Of particular note this year is the launch of the<br />

new Spectre-Pro series of ultra-modern fly<br />

rods, which follow on the back of the success we<br />

have seen with the exceptional <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS<br />

Graphene fly rod range. A br<strong>and</strong> new option for<br />

us, in both ranges, is a new 9ft 6in #6wt model,<br />

which in tests is proving a firm favourite.<br />

Having pioneered our flagship <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS<br />

Graphene fly rods since 2019, incorporating<br />

game changing Graphene technology, we<br />

found ourselves with an overwhelming response<br />

from some of the worlds very best anglers,<br />

plus a stream of flattering reviews, awards <strong>and</strong><br />

recommendations. Our feature of the <strong>Prestige</strong><br />

G-XS fly rods continues unabated, <strong>and</strong> that is how<br />

this amazing material produces a performance in<br />

fishing that has far exceeded even our own high<br />

expectations. With this range currently as good<br />

as modern technology can possibly achieve, we<br />

made the great choice in introducing the new<br />

Saltwater rods <strong>and</strong> Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed Switch<br />

& Spey rods, with no expense spared on the<br />

fittings <strong>and</strong> finish.<br />

The exciting news is that at the end of last year, we<br />

won two awards at the EFTTEX Best New Products<br />

Competition: the Best New Saltwater <strong>Fly</strong> Rod, for<br />

our <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS SW 9ft #8 model <strong>and</strong> Best New<br />

Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed <strong>Fly</strong> Rod for our <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS<br />

Switch 11ft #8. These prestigious international<br />

awards are competed for by entries from most of<br />

the top br<strong>and</strong>s worldwide, so to come away with<br />

2 out of the 3 awards in the fly rod section was a<br />

great endorsement of the <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS range.<br />

See pages 8-11 for full details.<br />

We still have the immensely popular Classic fly<br />

rod range, starting from less than £100 <strong>and</strong> starter<br />

outfits to match, plus the Diamond2 <strong>and</strong> new<br />

Spectre-Pro rods, with the amazing <strong>Prestige</strong><br />

G-XS Graphene series that take us up to the<br />

£500 mark <strong>and</strong> beyond.<br />

XS <strong>Fly</strong> Reels<br />

Last year saw our fly reel range extended, with the<br />

return of the infamous XS br<strong>and</strong>. The new<br />

XS <strong>Fly</strong> Reels include two amazing new,<br />

lightweight aluminium bar-stock fly reels, with<br />

powerful drag <strong>and</strong> minimal start up inertia, which<br />

are already finding favour with saltwater fly<br />

fishermen in the tropics, plus salmon fishermen,<br />

closer to home.<br />

In addition to the XS we also introduced a<br />

Cassette version to the <strong>Prestige</strong> Gold fly reels<br />

in both the #5/6 <strong>and</strong> #7/8 models.<br />

XS-Plus, XS <strong>and</strong> Classic <strong>Fly</strong> lines<br />

Throughout 2022, we were in the process of upgrading all our <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

XS fly lines. Since Covid set in, we were forced to move our entire factory<br />

<strong>and</strong> production facility, after restrictions completely halted production.<br />

‘Necessity is the mother of invention’ is a saying, very true in this case<br />

<strong>and</strong> the production move to a new factory, has proved sensational, as we<br />

are now making, quite simply, the best fly lines we have ever made! An<br />

achievement we would never have thought possible or even necessary,<br />

a couple of years ago. Our new lines, produced on new equipment, are<br />

proving even better than any we have ever produced before. Quite an<br />

achievement after more than 30 years manufacturing fly lines in the UK!<br />

The XS <strong>and</strong> twin-colour XS-Plus fly lines now all incorporate welded loops<br />

for convenience <strong>and</strong> with the latest Nano-coating technology, have proved<br />

to be nothing short of spectacular in the new livery <strong>and</strong> so worth the<br />

changes we made. <strong>Fly</strong> line production is fully up <strong>and</strong> running again now,<br />

with stock back to full levels <strong>and</strong> the wait as we had expected last year, was<br />

absolutely worthwhile! So teamed up with one of our quality fly rods <strong>and</strong><br />

reels, our new fly lines really do offer the perfect ‘balanced outfit’.<br />

See pages 25-34 for full details.<br />

Award winning technical clothing<br />

For XStra warmth in all weathers, the new XStreme quilted jackets, with<br />

their unique polyester insulation filling, are so light <strong>and</strong> snug they can be<br />

worn as an outer garment or underneath an outer shell jacket for extra<br />

thermal insulation on the coldest of days.<br />

In the EFTTEX Best New <strong>Fly</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong> Clothing category we also scooped the<br />

Runner-up award for this ultra-lightweight jacket, which packs down into the<br />

smallest space, but packs a big punch in terms of thermal properties!<br />

See page 49 for details.<br />

Our new XS shirts are similar to our<br />

previous, popular designs but are now<br />

made in a smart new cotton/polyester<br />

blend, suitable for all seasons. In the<br />

two most popular colours, the new<br />

tailoring also provides an improved fit<br />

over previous models. After years of<br />

service, the Geo fly vest has yet to be<br />

surpassed but our new ‘All <strong>Sea</strong>sons’<br />

fly vest comes a very close second<br />

<strong>and</strong> with the waterproof material <strong>and</strong><br />

removable back panel for warm,<br />

dry days, this now represents a<br />

great alternative at a considerable<br />

cost saving.<br />

See pages 49, 54 & 57 for full details.<br />

Waders for all situations<br />

Having been making waders longer than most, our range now includes models<br />

for every purpose & every budget. From the top-of the range <strong>Prestige</strong> STX<br />

breathable waders, through the more affordable Ranger breathables, to the<br />

virtually indestructible Wadermaster nylon range, to the heavy duty Granite<br />

PVC, which offer amazing performance, for the price! Sales <strong>and</strong> consistent,<br />

extreme reliability throughout the past five years, across all our wader ranges,<br />

has really shown that innovative design, coupled with the very latest in reliable,<br />

trustworthy material technology, will always provide the best winning formula.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Deep Blue <strong>Sea</strong>-<strong>Fishing</strong> Rods make a comeback<br />

At the end of 2018 we decided to get out of the sea fishing market, to concentrate on our core<br />

market of fly fishing. However, we didn’t realise just what a ‘cult following’ we had built up for our<br />

Deep Blue Boat Rods! We were literally inundated with requests to re-introduce these, so in<br />

late 2022, we did just that <strong>and</strong> haven’t looked back! A new factory, using new technology <strong>and</strong><br />

manufacturing techniques, but retaining the same smooth, powerful action, Deep Blue devotees<br />

have come to love! We are following that up for <strong>2023</strong>, with a new range of Deep Blue Jigging <strong>and</strong><br />

Spinning Rods, plus we have re-introduced some of the most popular sea fishing accessories.<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> Rods<br />

Why construction <strong>and</strong> materials matter<br />

more than ever – <strong>and</strong> how to choose the<br />

perfect rod for your chosen style of fishing.<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS fly rod<br />

As with any sports equipment, fly rods have<br />

undergone a huge technological change in the<br />

past two decades. They have steadily evolved<br />

from early glass fibre rods, through the early days<br />

of carbon fibre to the highly technical carbon<br />

composites of today, including the very latest<br />

'Graphene resin technology' incorporated into<br />

our new <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS fly rods.<br />

Modern day carbon fibres are quite delicate,<br />

having little tensile strength in their natural state<br />

<strong>and</strong> epoxy resin alone is very brittle, once cured.<br />

However, encapsulating the fibres in an epoxy<br />

resin creates a composite of enormous strength<br />

<strong>and</strong> flexibility, further enhanced today by the<br />

incredible properties of graphene – each essential<br />

requirements for the modern rod designer.<br />

Carbon fibres are first woven into a cloth, or mat,<br />

which is pre-impregnated with epoxy resin, to bond<br />

all the fibres together, giving the finished material<br />

incredible strength once cured. This 'pre-preg' as<br />

it is called, is then wrapped under pressure around<br />

a tapered steel rod, known as a m<strong>and</strong>rel <strong>and</strong> then<br />

baked in an autoclave oven, under high pressure<br />

to ‘cure’ the epoxy resin <strong>and</strong> help force out any tiny<br />

pockets of air. Once set <strong>and</strong> cooled, the finished<br />

carbon fibre 'tube' is removed from the m<strong>and</strong>rel<br />

<strong>and</strong> the work of turning this into a finished fly rod<br />

blank can begin.<br />

The next question is then ground or unground?<br />

When the raw blank is removed from the m<strong>and</strong>rel,<br />

the natural surface weave or ribbing of the carbon<br />

fibres shows through, giving a slightly rough<br />

outer surface. If a gloss finish rod is required, this<br />

is ground off <strong>and</strong> a coloured varnish applied.<br />

However, if a matt finish rod is required, this surface<br />

is left unground, as with our Spectre-Pro range of<br />

rods, providing a performance <strong>and</strong> action, closer to<br />

the original design concept.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> currently produce four different ranges<br />

of fly rods from the entry-level Classic range,<br />

starting at under £80, to our top of the range<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS models up to £500 <strong>and</strong> more. We<br />

are frequently asked... 'what’s the difference?'<br />

Fundamentally, this comes down to two things:<br />

1) The rod fittings <strong>and</strong> fixtures: Clearly the<br />

basic aluminium alloy reel seat used on the Classic<br />

range is a lot cheaper than the h<strong>and</strong>-made,<br />

lightweight silver/gold hard anodised aluminium<br />

reel seats used on the new <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS<br />

Graphene range, some featuring beautiful maple<br />

burl wood inserts, ensuring every rod is different<br />

<strong>and</strong> quite unique.<br />

2) The quality of the carbon fibre pre-preg<br />

<strong>and</strong> resin used: You will often hear or read<br />

about the 'modulus' of a carbon fibre rod. This<br />

is basically an abbreviation of 'Young's modulus<br />

of elasticity', which measures the resistance of a<br />

material to elastic (recoverable) deformation under<br />

load. A stiff material has a high Young's modulus<br />

Fast tip<br />

action<br />

Medium<br />

middle to tip<br />

Slow through<br />

action<br />

See full terms <strong>and</strong><br />

conditions on page 105<br />

<strong>and</strong> changes its shape only slightly under elastic<br />

loads (e.g. diamond). A flexible material however,<br />

has a low Young's modulus <strong>and</strong> changes its shape<br />

considerably (eg rubber). Clearly a fly rod blank<br />

needs to sit part way between these two extremes<br />

<strong>and</strong> this is where the good modern rod designer<br />

comes into his own.<br />

A higher modulus blank, will have a faster<br />

action, a faster tip 'recovery' (the speed at which<br />

the blank returns to its original shape) <strong>and</strong> will<br />

generally be lighter. High modulus carbons are also<br />

more expensive to produce, so will generally be<br />

used for top-end rods, which will require a tip, or<br />

middle to tip action.<br />

At the other end of the scale, medium modulus<br />

carbon blanks are used for lower grade fly rods,<br />

where price is a consideration <strong>and</strong> a slightly slower,<br />

more forgiving action required.<br />

Most of the <strong>Snowbee</strong> range of fly rods, use a<br />

mix of different carbon fibre pre-pregs, to achieve<br />

the precise action required for that range.<br />

The Classic range uses predominantly, single 24<br />

ton carbon. The Diamond 2 range uses a mix of<br />

30 <strong>and</strong> 36 ton carbon, while on the Spectre ® Pro<br />

range, this is upgraded to a mix of 40 to 46 ton<br />

carbon.<br />

New Spectre ® Pro fly rods<br />

The new style Spectre ® Pro fly rods are a satin<br />

finish silver-grey colour, with distinctive black<br />

whipping finish throughout. They have a high<br />

quality, chrome finished, aluminium reel seat <strong>and</strong><br />

double up-locking rings on all models. The range<br />

also includes our first ever 9ft 6in #6wt, introduced<br />

by popular dem<strong>and</strong> for the Stillwater anglers in<br />

particular, looking to lighten their day-long work<br />

load <strong>and</strong> presentation, but still obtain optimum<br />

presentation, with distance casting still easily<br />

achievable. At a starting price of £285, these<br />

exceptional new rods are poised to take the<br />

stillwater <strong>and</strong> river markets by storm!<br />

All our ‘multi-modulus’ blanks, use our well<br />

proven ‘<strong>Snowbee</strong> Tri-modulus carbon’ technology,<br />

where a subtle blend of different modulus<br />

carbons are used through the blank, to achieve<br />

the precise action we require. The new <strong>Prestige</strong><br />

G-XS Graphene range, uses only 46 ton carbon,<br />

but significantly uses graphene nano resin<br />

throughout, which provides the incredible <strong>and</strong><br />

unique properties these rods have. Graphene is an<br />

amazing new discovery <strong>and</strong> a real game changer<br />

where used, extremely light <strong>and</strong> reputedly 200<br />

times stronger than steel!<br />

Choosing a fly rod<br />

This is very much a personal thing, as one fly rod<br />

will not suit everyone. The first <strong>and</strong> most obvious<br />

consideration is budget – how much you want to<br />

spend on a rod which is often misconstrued by<br />

many fly fisherman. A more expensive rod, doesn’t<br />

necessarily make you a better caster! If your casting<br />

is a bit ‘rusty’ or could do with some ‘polishing up’,<br />

then better to spend less on a rod <strong>and</strong> spend the<br />

difference on some professional casting lessons with<br />

an approved instructor! There are also several<br />

free <strong>and</strong> very useful videos we have put together<br />

which many have now used to help improve<br />

their casting. We cover some of the simple<br />

techniques <strong>and</strong> pitfalls <strong>and</strong> there’s even one<br />

featuring the ‘double haul’. www.snowbee.co.uk<br />

You then need to take into account the type & style<br />

of fly fishing you wish to do. If predominantly small<br />

river work <strong>and</strong> short distances, then a slower action<br />

rod is ideal. We would generally call this a middle,<br />

or ‘through-action’ rod. Larger rivers <strong>and</strong> small<br />

stillwaters, will generally require a slightly longer<br />

rod, with a faster, middle, or middle to tip action.<br />

Large stillwaters <strong>and</strong> reservoirs, where distance<br />

casting is often required, will generally require rods,<br />

with a fast, middle to tip, or tip action. A fast action<br />

rod, will allow the caster to generate the higher line<br />

speed in the air <strong>and</strong> tighter line loops required for<br />

maximum distance casting. Bear in mind however,<br />

that the faster the action of a rod, the more ‘timing<br />

critical’ it becomes to cast <strong>and</strong> therefore requires<br />

more advanced casting skills to get the best from<br />

it. Boat fishing also makes up a lot of the Stillwater<br />

fishing activity. Here a longer rod is advantageous<br />

<strong>and</strong> again, actions are critical. These will generally<br />

have a slower action, as distance casting is not so<br />

necessary, but lighter, more precise presentation is<br />

of greater importance.<br />

Single-h<strong>and</strong>ed fly rods<br />

Follow these general guidelines for your fly rod<br />

length <strong>and</strong> line weight:<br />

Freshwater<br />

• Small rivers <strong>and</strong> streams, for trout<br />

7ft - 9ft #1 - #5 Wt.<br />

• Larger rivers, for trout <strong>and</strong> grayling<br />

9ft -10ft #3 - #6 Wt.<br />

• Medium to large rivers for sea trout <strong>and</strong> light<br />

salmon 9ft -11ft #6 - #8 Wt.<br />

• Small stillwaters for brown trout <strong>and</strong> rainbows<br />

9ft -10ft #5 - #7 Wt.<br />

• Large reservoirs for brown trout <strong>and</strong> rainbows<br />

9ft -10ft #5 - #8 Wt.<br />

Saltwater<br />

• UK saltwater <strong>and</strong> flats bonefish 9ft #7 - #10 Wt.<br />

Also take into account the rod action, as<br />

detailed above, which is an indication of the way<br />

the rod flexes in response to both casting <strong>and</strong><br />

playing a fish. A fast action rod can generate<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Double-<br />

H<strong>and</strong>ed Salmon Rod<br />

higher line speeds required for extreme distance<br />

casting, allowing a talented caster to have great<br />

line <strong>and</strong> loop control. The faster tip ‘recovery’,<br />

when distance casting, will reduce ‘ripples’ down<br />

the line <strong>and</strong> improve the line’s flight through the air.<br />

Be aware though, as the stiffer tips are less flexible<br />

<strong>and</strong> can, especially with non-stretch lines, ‘bounce’<br />

fish off the hook, so more care is required, when<br />

playing fish.<br />

Less able casters may find it hard to get the<br />

timing of their cast correct, with a fast action rod,<br />

so can be better rewarded with a rod of a more<br />

moderate action. For general small river <strong>and</strong><br />

stillwater trout fishing, it is better to choose a<br />

rod with a middle to tip action, which can be less<br />

dem<strong>and</strong>ing to cast <strong>and</strong> better for roll casting <strong>and</strong><br />

fishing at short range.<br />

Double-h<strong>and</strong>ed fly rods<br />

Very often, newcomers to salmon fishing, assume<br />

that a double h<strong>and</strong>ed rod is always required – it is<br />

not. There are many situations, on smaller rivers,<br />

fishing for sea-trout or grilse, where a single h<strong>and</strong>ed<br />

rod, of say 10ft #7 Wt., is more than adequate.<br />

As you move up to slightly larger rivers however,<br />

you are frequently in between the need for a single<br />

h<strong>and</strong>ed rod, or a full, double h<strong>and</strong>ed Spey rod.<br />

This is exactly why 'Switch Rods' were developed<br />

on the North West coasts of the USA <strong>and</strong> Canada.<br />

A Switch rod is light enough to use single h<strong>and</strong>ed,<br />

but where required, can be used two-h<strong>and</strong>ed, for<br />

greater distance <strong>and</strong> control, or where bankside<br />

vegetation, requires a Spey casting style.<br />

As you move onto larger, more powerful rivers,<br />

double-h<strong>and</strong>ers come into their own. You often<br />

need to lift longer lengths of line, control <strong>and</strong> mend<br />

the line as it crosses the current <strong>and</strong> frequently fish<br />

with larger, heavier lines <strong>and</strong> flies. Over the past few<br />

years, as carbon technology has improved, we have<br />

seen the length of two-h<strong>and</strong>ed salmon rods reduce<br />

however, as greater power can now be achieved,<br />

with shorter, lighter rods <strong>and</strong> shooting head style<br />

fly lines. We therefore now only make the two most<br />

popular traditional models at 13ft #8/9 <strong>and</strong> the<br />

14ft #9/10, which are more than adequate for most<br />

salmon fishing situations.<br />

Again, fly line consideration <strong>and</strong> fishing<br />

location are critical <strong>and</strong> for the travelling angler,<br />

a convenient multi-piece rod, like our 5 & 6-pce<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS <strong>and</strong> the Spectre Switch <strong>and</strong> Salmon<br />

rods, may well be a more convenient option, than<br />

their 4-pce predecessors.<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed<br />

Graphene <strong>Fly</strong> Rods<br />

Following the outst<strong>and</strong>ing success of our <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS single h<strong>and</strong>ed fly rods, it was only a<br />

matter of time, before we extended the remarkable pedigree <strong>and</strong> phenomenally advanced<br />

Graphene technology, to a new range of double-h<strong>and</strong>ed <strong>and</strong> saltwater fly rods.<br />

Combining Nano Carbon<br />

technology with the incredible<br />

properties of Graphene has<br />

proved sensational. We have<br />

added satin finished aluminium<br />

reel seats to the new rods,<br />

maintaining remarkable<br />

lightness to the ultra-modern<br />

designs, then anodised them for<br />

corrosion resistance, especially in saltwater.<br />

The modern designs of the cork h<strong>and</strong>les are<br />

fashioned from the very finest quality, super-grade<br />

North American cork available. All butt extensions<br />

<strong>and</strong> lower h<strong>and</strong>les are tipped with a rubber composite cork, for<br />

additional wear <strong>and</strong> protection. The salmon rods are all finished in a<br />

dark, lustrous teal/blue, with a combined self-colour <strong>and</strong> silver whip<br />

finish. There are two large lined stripper rings <strong>and</strong> high-lift snake<br />

rings throughout with each section spot marked for a perfect line up. The 13ft <strong>and</strong><br />

14ft models also have whip markings to 110cm, to help quickly assess the weight<br />

<strong>and</strong> size of bigger fish without the need to remove them from the water.<br />

11’ #8 Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed Switch <strong>Fly</strong> Rod (5-pce)<br />

Designed for double h<strong>and</strong>ed use on lakes <strong>and</strong> rivers, this often referred to ‘Switch’ style rod, exhibits all the power reserves of the <strong>Prestige</strong> Graphene G-XS<br />

range. Still light enough to be cast single h<strong>and</strong>ed, as well as for purposely light double-h<strong>and</strong>ed use. Great on smaller rivers for large trout, sea-trout <strong>and</strong> grilse or<br />

from the boat. These rods are so light <strong>and</strong> versatile, you can use them for almost anything <strong>and</strong> they possess deceptive <strong>and</strong> responsive reserves of casting <strong>and</strong> fish<br />

playing power, typical of the entire <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS range.<br />

13’ #8/9 Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed Salmon <strong>Fly</strong> Rod (6 pce)<br />

Traditional double-h<strong>and</strong>ed rod but in lighter weight than the 14ft model.<br />

Perfect for lighter lines <strong>and</strong> throwing short heads a long, long way <strong>and</strong> all day<br />

if necessary, with effortless <strong>and</strong> utterly deceptive ease. Great for multi-tip <strong>and</strong><br />

multi-density, short-head fly lines especially <strong>and</strong> the popular choice of the<br />

successful, modern day salmon angler.<br />

14’ #9/10 Double-H<strong>and</strong>ed Salmon <strong>Fly</strong> Rod (6 pce)<br />

The daddy in the range, with the prototype having already accounted for<br />

fish over 20lbs in testing of the early samples, across the biggest <strong>and</strong> best<br />

rivers of Scotl<strong>and</strong>. The power <strong>and</strong> recovery, as with all the Graphene rods<br />

is awesome, with the blank flexing all the way through the h<strong>and</strong>le when<br />

required. Suitable for longer head traditional spey lines, but purposely<br />

designed for the most modern of short-head skagit <strong>and</strong> shooting-head fly<br />

lines, to achieve maximum distance <strong>and</strong> extreme depth, with fast sinking<br />

tips <strong>and</strong> heavy flies where required.<br />

achieving the lightest possible weight, from the CNC<br />

machined aluminium design <strong>and</strong> anodised to provide their<br />

characteristic satin sheen <strong>and</strong> corrosion proof finish. The butt<br />

extensions are tipped with a high wearing rubber cork composition <strong>and</strong><br />

there is a small keeper ring for those requiring one. Every rod possesses the<br />

outst<strong>and</strong>ing features now familiar with the entire <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Graphene<br />

range. Already extensively tested with outst<strong>and</strong>ing results <strong>and</strong> performance,<br />

these new saltwater G-XS rods will help turn dreams into reality for many, as<br />

the lightweight <strong>and</strong> effortlessly powerful <strong>and</strong> accurate construction, accounts<br />

for specimen fish of all species worldwide.<br />

9ft #7wt<br />

A responsive, 9ft casting machine,<br />

designed for accuracy <strong>and</strong> expert<br />

presentation. Ideal for general purpose<br />

saltwater <strong>and</strong> predator fishing for the likes of Bass,<br />

Bonefish <strong>and</strong> Jacks, using smaller flies <strong>and</strong> where<br />

finesse may be required. Still deceptively powerful,<br />

the hidden energy in these rods is awesome, with a<br />

smoothness you would not believe. The new Graphene<br />

construction provides the typical <strong>and</strong> unique tip recovery<br />

<strong>and</strong> performance, unsurpassed by any other material.<br />

Over-sized SiC lined<br />

titanium stripper rings<br />

Hard chrome, saltwater<br />

9ft #8wt<br />

Designed for larger predators <strong>and</strong> casting bigger flies. Often the preferred<br />

weight when likely to experience windy conditions <strong>and</strong> bigger fish, as so<br />

often encountered on the coast. More powerful than the #7wt rod but still so<br />

light in the h<strong>and</strong>, making this rod the ideal all-rounder choice for bonefish, permit<br />

<strong>and</strong> pike, plus ideal for the increasingly popular fly fishing for carp. Same butt <strong>and</strong><br />

finish as the #7wt; just a beefier version for use with a heavier line <strong>and</strong> larger flies.<br />

9ft #10wt<br />

The most powerful in the saltwater series, yet still deceptively light <strong>and</strong> easy to<br />

cast. Ideal for presenting large flies with ease <strong>and</strong> at distance where required,<br />

as well as being very capable of taming muscle bound predators in all waters.<br />

Same construction as both the lighter models, except for a slightly longer butt<br />

extension to assist playing larger fish. The perfect choice for permit, tarpon <strong>and</strong><br />

all larger predators.<br />

Graphene <strong>Fly</strong> Rods<br />

Over the years, fly rod technology has taken occasional quantum<br />

leaps forward. First the move from split cane to fibreglass; then the<br />

next move to carbon fibre, <strong>and</strong> now, the latest development –<br />

Graphene! This amazing new technology really is a<br />

‘game changer’ <strong>and</strong> propels <strong>Snowbee</strong> to the top of the<br />

leader board, in terms of performance <strong>and</strong> innovation.<br />

Graphene was first discovered <strong>and</strong> isolated in 2010,<br />

by two researchers in the Physics Department of<br />

Manchester University, who went on to be awarded<br />

the Nobel Prize for Physics, for their discovery.<br />

Graphene really is a game-changer. In its raw<br />

form it consists of a two-dimensional, carbon<br />

sheet just one atom thick, yet 200 times stronger<br />

than steel! It is the lightest material on earth <strong>and</strong><br />

at the molecular level, Graphene is one million<br />

times smaller than the diameter of a human hair!<br />

Apart from its strength, another important feature<br />

of Graphene is its flexibility. In fly rod production,<br />

Graphene powder is added to the epoxy resins to<br />

enhance inherent properties such as tensile strength<br />

<strong>and</strong> flexibility.<br />

A few years ago the latest technology was Nano Carbon<br />

rods. The principle was that the smaller, 'round profile' nano<br />

molecules added to the epoxy resin, were able to penetrate<br />

every void within the carbon fibre mat, far better than long-chain<br />

epoxy resin molecules. This innovation to reinforce resins, created a<br />

pre-preg material, with a flexural strength <strong>and</strong> modulus, far higher than that<br />

of conventional resin. This resulted in fly rod blanks that were lighter, crisper<br />

<strong>and</strong> more precise in action than anything previously achievable <strong>and</strong> a blank so<br />

close to 'unbreakable' in normal use as it is possible to achieve.<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS <strong>Fly</strong> Rod<br />

<strong>and</strong> Spectre Reel<br />

This principle has been taken one stage further, with the new Graphene resin<br />

technology, as Graphene atoms are 300 times smaller than the smallest<br />

nanoparticle, resulting in an even denser carbon mat, with virtually no air<br />

pockets, enhanced by the use of autoclave ovens, which ‘bake’ the<br />

blanks under high pressure, to further expel any air pockets.<br />

Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rods<br />

The amazing Spectre ® <strong>Fly</strong> Rod range, first<br />

launched in 2017, have again been upgraded for<br />

<strong>2023</strong>, to incorporate the very latest thinking<br />

in fly rod design <strong>and</strong> performance.<br />

New for<br />

<strong>2023</strong><br />

The 'holy grail' of fly rod design has always been to achieve that light, effortless feel<br />

that belies the hidden power of the blank, often exhibited by the world’s top br<strong>and</strong>s,<br />

but with a price tag to match. Working closely with our fly rod designers <strong>and</strong> factory,<br />

we have managed to achieve just that, but at a price which seems impossible for<br />

rods of this quality <strong>and</strong> performance!<br />

The all new Spectre ® Pro rods use the very latest carbon fibre technology <strong>and</strong> build on the<br />

past performance of their predecessors. For many years <strong>Snowbee</strong> have used ‘multi-modulus’<br />

carbon technology varying the tensile modulus of the carbon fibre, through the blank,<br />

allowing us to precisely design <strong>and</strong> control the stiffness <strong>and</strong> flex in each section, as well as the<br />

important recovery speed of the tip. Using predominantly 40 ton carbon fibre with a small<br />

amount of 36 ton, we have achieved the precise, crisp, middle-to-tip action we required,<br />

through careful manipulation of the resin formulation <strong>and</strong> carbon fibre scrim.<br />

The blanks are left ‘un-ground’ with a natural finish, leaving the original matt lay-up of the<br />

double helical hoop pattern intact, adding strength to the blank, making it far more durable,<br />

whilst still providing the desired enhanced performance. The satin finish, silver/grey blank,<br />

helps eliminate ‘rod flash’, whilst the contrasting black whippings, with subtle silver trim, give<br />

these rods a contemporary finish <strong>and</strong> ‘understated’ look. To keep weight to a minimum, we<br />

have used lightweight machined aluminium reel seats, with carbon fibre inserts <strong>and</strong> a silver<br />

anodised finish. Each rod in the range has a small rubber-cork fighting butt <strong>and</strong> comes in a<br />

quality self-colour cotton drill rod bag, plus matching Cordura covered rod tube.<br />

10268 Spectre ® Pro (Saltwater/Predator) <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 9' #8<br />

With the ever increasing popularity of saltwater bonefish, carp <strong>and</strong> pike fly fishing, the<br />

Saltwater/Predator model is top of the Spectre range. The blanks have steeper tapers<br />

<strong>and</strong> thicker wall profiles to h<strong>and</strong>le the larger, more powerful fish likely to be encountered.<br />

Lightweight machined aluminium reel seat <strong>and</strong> high chrome guides make the Spectre SP<br />

st<strong>and</strong> out.<br />

10260 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 8'6" #5<br />

10261 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 9' #5<br />

10262 Spectre® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 9' #6<br />

The perfect small river or brook rods, equally suitable as compact<br />

small stillwater rods, where a slightly softer action allows a more<br />

delicate presentation when seeking ‘spooky’ fish.<br />

10263 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 9'6" #6<br />

10264 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 9'6" #7<br />

10267 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 10' #7<br />

The ever popular rods of choice for larger rivers, stillwaters <strong>and</strong><br />

reservoirs. All three models have massive reserves of power,<br />

allowing those extra few yards to reach the fish previously<br />

just out of range.<br />

10265 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 10' #5<br />

10266 Spectre ® Pro <strong>Fly</strong> Rod 10' #6<br />

Two ‘loch style’ rods, the smaller rod being ideal for lighter line<br />

fishing, particularly dry-fly <strong>and</strong> top of the water styles, while the<br />

#6 model is designed for more general loch style fishing for<br />

brown <strong>and</strong> rainbow trout, when a more powerful rod is required.<br />

Diamond 2 <strong>Fly</strong> Rods<br />

Since 1994 the name Diamond <strong>Fly</strong> has been<br />

synonymous with <strong>Snowbee</strong> <strong>and</strong> has built a loyal<br />

following amongst fly fishers.<br />

Our top-selling Diamond 2 range incorporates the very latest thinking in<br />

fly rod design <strong>and</strong> material technology. The rods retain the same crisp,<br />

middle-to-tip action of their predecessors <strong>and</strong> still represent exceptional<br />

value for money for a rod of this quality. Using our well-tried<br />

‘Tri-modulus carbon’ technology produces a blank that is fast <strong>and</strong> light.<br />

These rods compete on performance with the market leaders, but are<br />

infinitely more affordable. Using the finest quality materials we spared<br />

nothing in producing the best looking, best fishing 4-piece fly rods<br />

we could achieve at this price. The range has been designed<br />

with a particular fishing application in mind. In addition to<br />

river, small stillwater <strong>and</strong> reservoir rods, we also have<br />

longer, lower line weight models, appealing to river<br />

fishers who favour the lighter Eastern European <strong>and</strong><br />

Czech nymph styles of fishing.<br />

Finished in a lustrous deep olive colour, with selfcolour<br />

whippings, subtle gold graphics <strong>and</strong> brushed<br />

aluminium reel seats, with olive green burl wood insert<br />

complementing the colour of the blanks. Combine all of<br />

these <strong>and</strong> you have a rod with timeless appeal.<br />

XS Salmon <strong>and</strong> Saltwater <strong>Fly</strong> Reels<br />

21 years ago we launched the original XS fly reels; our<br />

first CNC-machined fly reel manufactured to our design<br />

by British <strong>Fly</strong> Reels (BFR) in Falmouth, UK. These<br />

ground-breaking reels won every 'Best New <strong>Fly</strong> Reel'<br />

review two years running. We felt the time was<br />

right to resurrect the 'XS' name for a new, top of<br />

the range fly reel – so here they are!<br />

These new reels started with a simple design concept <strong>and</strong> resulted<br />

in the polished new product of today which moves us into a different<br />

league, in terms of technology <strong>and</strong> performance.<br />

XS fly reel #7/9<br />

back detail<br />

The design brief was for a range of reels, with which the world’s fly fishers could<br />

take on the best that the largest rivers <strong>and</strong> widest oceans could throw at them...<br />

<strong>and</strong> win! These sensational looking reels feature a precision milled CNC body <strong>and</strong><br />

spool to reduce weight to the absolute minimum,<br />

whilst retaining massive strength. The powerful<br />

multi-disc drag system incorporates a combination<br />

of stainless steel, composite <strong>and</strong> carbon fibre discs,<br />

which delivers a silky-smooth drag performance<br />

with near zero start-up inertia. This has taken<br />

the hugely effective design <strong>and</strong> performance<br />

of those original XS reels made at BFR to new<br />

levels, by using modern materials <strong>and</strong> with a<br />

modern finish to match, with added weight<br />

saving <strong>and</strong> performance. A fine-pitch, detented<br />

drag adjustment allows constant minute<br />

increases in drag pressure as required, from<br />

zero to the max with infinite control, plus the<br />

whole drag assembly is then completely sealed<br />

for saltwater use <strong>and</strong> protection by means of<br />

silicone O-rings.<br />

10570 XS <strong>Fly</strong> Reel #7/9<br />

The first choice for the best of saltwater bonefish, jacks, permit <strong>and</strong> smaller<br />

tarpon, or bass <strong>and</strong> pollock closer to home, <strong>and</strong> light enough to be the<br />

perfect partner to the exceptional new Graphene saltwater rods. Also ideal<br />

when matched with the smaller Spey or Switch rods for when using lighter<br />

lines salmon or sea-trout fishing. Diameter: 4”/ 102 mm Weight: 180g (6.3oz)<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> Gold <strong>Fly</strong> Reels<br />

10552 <strong>Prestige</strong> Gold <strong>Fly</strong> Reel #3/4<br />

The <strong>Prestige</strong> #3/4 model is the ideal, lightweight<br />

small river reel, offering the perfect balance on rods<br />

of 6-8½ft. Diameter: 2.9” / 74mm Weight: 106g<br />

10553 <strong>Prestige</strong> Gold <strong>Fly</strong> Reel #5/6<br />

The <strong>Prestige</strong> #5/6 is the perfect choice for slightly<br />

larger rivers, with rods of around 9ft, but with<br />

sufficient backing capacity for stillwaters. Also<br />

makes the perfect loch style reel, matched to the<br />

lighter weight rods, now commonly used.<br />

Diameter: 3.4” / 86mm Weight: 136g<br />

To complement our class-leading <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS fly rods the <strong>Prestige</strong> Gold fly reels provide an ultralightweight<br />

reel option for superb balance on today’s lightweight carbon fly rods. Precision CNCmachined<br />

from solid, high grade aircraft aluminium bar stock. The CNC design programming ensures<br />

that the maximum amount of metal is removed, for the lightest weight possible whilst retaining optimum<br />

strength <strong>and</strong> rigidity. These precision reels are fitted with a sealed, multi-disc cork <strong>and</strong> stainless steel<br />

centre drag, which offers powerful drag performance to cope with the hardest<br />

running fish. However, the multi-disc design provides minimal start-up inertia to<br />

prevent break-offs with ‘smash takes’ <strong>and</strong> allows the use of the finest tippets. The<br />

large arbor design allows faster retrieve, more consistent drag performance <strong>and</strong><br />

minimal line memory. Internal parts, such as the main spindle <strong>and</strong> clutch bearing,<br />

are manufactured from stainless steel for corrosion resistance even in salt-water,<br />

while the precision one-way roller clutch bearing provides instant drag control<br />

when that ‘smash take’ catches you by surprise. The hard gold anodised finish<br />

provides superb saltwater <strong>and</strong> chip resistance. The comfortable spool h<strong>and</strong>le<br />

<strong>and</strong> counter weight are machined from aluminium <strong>and</strong> hard<br />

anodised in a contrasting black colour.<br />

Since the introduction of the <strong>Prestige</strong> Gold <strong>Fly</strong> Reels in 2020, we have constantly been asked for a<br />

cassette version, so here they are! All the features of the original reels, but with the convenience of<br />

quick-change Cassette Spools.<br />

Onyx <strong>Fly</strong> Reels<br />

A new dimension in fly reel design <strong>and</strong><br />

technology.<br />

The main reel frame <strong>and</strong> spool are made from lightweight, durable<br />

die-cast aluminium <strong>and</strong> finished on a precision CNC machine, so you<br />

get the best of both worlds – the finish, feel <strong>and</strong> precision of a<br />

CNC machined reel, but at a die-cast price. The large arbor design<br />

gives faster line retrieve, more consistent drag performance <strong>and</strong><br />

minimal line memory. Add to this a multi-disc, centre drag system<br />

<strong>and</strong> you have a fly reel which performs way above its expectations<br />

at this price level. The cork <strong>and</strong> stainless steel drag discs provide a<br />

smooth, powerful drag performance, with minimal start-up inertia<br />

to avoid those ‘smash-takes’.<br />

In a range of sizes from the #3/4<br />

model for the smallest brook<br />

rod, to a powerful #9/11 salmon<br />

model. The #5/7 <strong>and</strong> #7/9 models<br />

come with an easy-change<br />

cassette spool system.<br />

10538S Onyx #5/7<br />

The popular #5/7 model, but<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

New technology takes our award winning fly lines to yet higher levels!<br />

Having had to revise <strong>and</strong> move our fly line production, due to the issues<br />

caused worldwide by the Covid p<strong>and</strong>emic, production was seriously<br />

affected for a while <strong>and</strong> forced us to make some essential changes. At<br />

the point of having to make the changes, we also chose to rationalise the<br />

whole range <strong>and</strong> take out a number of lines that were similar in design to<br />

one another. We took out all the older Countdown lines <strong>and</strong> added two of<br />

the most popular size sink-tip lines, with a longer 10ft Buzzer 2 Sink-Tip,<br />

plus a further faster sinking 10ft Sink-tip in the superb casting Spectre<br />

Distance range. An important addition as Sink-Tip fishing has become such<br />

a popular <strong>and</strong> diverse style of fishing today.<br />

We’ve replaced the Neutral Density with a two colour XS Hover Slow<br />

Intermediate, plus extended the XS single colour range, to include two new<br />

sub-surface lines. We’ve also condensed the Salmon <strong>and</strong> Saltwater ranges<br />

<strong>and</strong> have full production on all lines once again. The results have given us a<br />

more compact range across all lines but still providing an ideal choice for every<br />

situation.<br />

New advances in Nano Coating Technology (NCT) have also enabled us to<br />

produce the smoothest, most supple <strong>and</strong> longest lasting fly lines in over 30<br />

years of fly line production. Our 'Nano-Coating' was first introduced in 2015,<br />

<strong>and</strong> took our lines onto a new level. The latest generation of XS <strong>and</strong> XS-Plus<br />

fly lines however, have an even finer finish than we’ve been able to achieve<br />

before, helping them to not only cast better, as they travel silently through the<br />

rod rings <strong>and</strong> cut cleaner through the air, but also more durable, increasing the<br />

life of all our lines still further. The result <strong>and</strong> general feedback so far has been<br />

outst<strong>and</strong>ing, <strong>and</strong> combining our unique, bespoke material <strong>and</strong> design profiles,<br />

have now enhanced even the best lines we have ever produced.<br />

If you thought our previous range of lines were good – just wait until you try these!<br />

XS-Plus <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

Our fly lines are currently broken down into<br />

three main groups with the popular XS-Plus<br />

recognised as our flagship top of the range,<br />

with a wider selection than our st<strong>and</strong>ard XS.<br />

The XS-Plus are all two-colour options, in a<br />

range of weight forward bespoke profiles,<br />

designed specifically for their specialist<br />

applications <strong>and</strong> form the major group of<br />

our <strong>Snowbee</strong> fly lines today. This includes<br />

the Twin Colours, Spectre Distance <strong>and</strong><br />

Thistledown, plus all the Salmon <strong>and</strong><br />

Saltwater XS-Plus fly lines.<br />

Classic <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

The final group of <strong>Snowbee</strong> fly lines<br />

are the Classic series. Each in a weight<br />

forward profile <strong>and</strong> single colour only,<br />

with characteristically shorter heads than<br />

the XS <strong>and</strong> XS-Plus ranges, aimed more<br />

specifically at the budget conscious or<br />

newcomer, just starting out in fly fishing.<br />

XS <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

The XS range use exactly the same materials in production but each of the<br />

XS fly lines are the same st<strong>and</strong>ard length at 90ft <strong>and</strong> a st<strong>and</strong>ard XS profile in<br />

single colour only. Our traditional XS Ivory <strong>and</strong> Hi-Viz floating fly lines, have<br />

formed our core products since their first development over 30 years ago <strong>and</strong><br />

continue to do so, with their characteristic profile <strong>and</strong> instantly recognisable<br />

livery. Added to the XS range late last year, were two sinking options, an<br />

Intermediate (2.5ips) <strong>and</strong> a Fast-Sink (5ips) line, to provide everything needed<br />

for a good day out on the water, searching the depths for those elusive fish!<br />

We also have a traditional single colour floating Double Taper line in the XS<br />

range <strong>and</strong> for <strong>2023</strong>, by popular dem<strong>and</strong>, we see a welcome return of the XS<br />

Delicate Presentation line.<br />

The XS-Plus Spectre Distance lines have proved nothing short of<br />

sensational, with the design taking into account the casting ability of most<br />

anglers. If you can cast at all, this line will help flatter your performance.<br />

If you can cast well, the Spectre Distance lines will help make your casting<br />

become exceptional. The new Spectre series have a profile that extends<br />

beyond the range of our traditional XS fly lines <strong>and</strong> at 30ft longer are<br />

40 yards in total length, necessary to accommodate their outst<strong>and</strong>ing<br />

performance. Each of the Spectre Distance lines has the same head length<br />

at 47ft. To achieve the benefit of longer casts however, the profiles have<br />

been ‘tweaked’ accordingly, to optimise all casting abilities. The front taper<br />

is 7ft in order to still achieve great turnover, especially at longer range <strong>and</strong><br />

the longer rear taper of 8ft extends the profile over which a good cast can<br />

still be achieved, whether the optimum head length has been precisely<br />

aerialised, or not.<br />

RUNNING LINE 73ft<br />

The rear taper on the Spectre lines start at a much extended 39ft, nearly<br />

1/3rd longer than the st<strong>and</strong>ard XS. This provides a ‘load point’ much<br />

longer than normal, yet still very manageable. So, where room behind<br />

for a decent back-cast, this helps significantly when distance casting,<br />

without adding bulk to the fly line to achieve the same. <strong>Snowbee</strong> lines are<br />

renowned for being very slim <strong>and</strong> by extending the head length within<br />

manageable levels, this provides perfect rod flex when fully extended,<br />

without increasing wind resistance through bulk. With a longer head<br />

already extended, the cast automatically travels further. <strong>Snowbee</strong>’s slim<br />

running line also then comes into play <strong>and</strong> is why these lines are now 120ft<br />

long rather than the st<strong>and</strong>ard 90ft.<br />

The Spectre series now comprises of four lines with the addition of a new<br />

Sink-Tip version for this ever more popular style of fishing. It has a sinking<br />

10ft tip of similar 2-2.5ips density to the long full head intermediate. The<br />

Floating line will provide long <strong>and</strong> accurate casts when fishing dries, <strong>and</strong><br />

the sink tip can further extend that now to enhance control when fishing<br />

buzzers, damsels <strong>and</strong> washing line for example. The Intermediate, with a<br />

level sink rate on the head of 2-2.5ips provides the ability to fish subsurface,<br />

plus allows great control to more depth if required, in all weathers.<br />

The Fast-Sink line has a sink rate of 5ips <strong>and</strong> provides the ability to reach<br />

drop-offs at long range <strong>and</strong> get down quickly to fish near the bottom, early<br />

season with boobies, or even to explore greater depths<br />

from the boat. All the lines have a Hi-Viz Chartreuse<br />

floating running line that will gradually pull sub-surface,<br />

with the weight of the sinking lines, providing the<br />

perfect direct link to the flies without slack, for best<br />

visibility <strong>and</strong> enhanced take detection.<br />

XS-Plus Distance <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

When it comes down to reaching fish that have pushed far out<br />

from the shore on a distant drop off, because of bright sun, weed,<br />

shallow water or just fishing pressure, the new Nano Technology<br />

of the XS-Plus fly lines could not be better suited to the distance<br />

profiles <strong>and</strong> construction of these two superb fly lines.<br />

EDF XS-Plus Extreme Distance Floating<br />

(Ivory/Peach WF5-WF8)<br />

This line has the longest head of any <strong>Snowbee</strong> fly line at 60 feet <strong>and</strong> 150ft (50yards) in total<br />

length. With the superb, silky finish of the Ivory coloured head, this line could easily be mistaken<br />

for an XS floating line, until the two-tone transition to the peach running line becomes exposed.<br />

Then, in the h<strong>and</strong>s of a good exponent of the double haul, <strong>and</strong> a <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Graphene fly rod<br />

for example, the biggest give away of all is when the exceptional distance, that can be effortlessly<br />

achieved, becomes evident as the line disappears towards the horizon! This twin-colour fly line is<br />

truly exceptional <strong>and</strong> is another award winning fly line in the <strong>Snowbee</strong> XS-Plus range. Now with a<br />

#5wt version, this has proved to be one of the ultimate distance casting lines ever made…..<br />

EXDF XS-Plus XS-tra Distance Floating<br />

(Chartreuse/Hi-Viz Orange WF5-WF8)<br />

This very supple line with a short, Hi-Viz Chartreuse head <strong>and</strong> Hi-Viz Orange running line will<br />

deliver a cast at range with very little back cast. Deliberately designed for use in tight spaces, or<br />

simply effortless distance casting even for a modest beginner, the line excels when teamed up<br />

with the correctly weighted fly rod <strong>and</strong> is the most commonly purchased fly line on the <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

‘balanced outfit’ promotion (see p17).<br />

The XS-Plus XS-tra Distance line uses a shooting-head profile designed for extreme distance casting<br />

with minimal back-cast or false casting. This floating line, has a relatively short head of 40ft, with<br />

a short rear taper for powerful performance, onto a continuous, high visibility <strong>and</strong> fine diameter,<br />

floating running line. With the new Nano-coating, of all the XS-Plus fly lines, this provides the ultimate<br />

‘shootability’ when casting <strong>and</strong> the high visibility helps enhance optimum ‘take’ <strong>and</strong> ‘strike’ detection.<br />

The overall length of the line is 120ft (40 yards), some 30ft longer than the st<strong>and</strong>ard XS <strong>and</strong> most other<br />

conventional fly line profiles, purposely extended to accommodate the range that can be attained. Early<br />

trials saw the loop to backing joint, rattling through the rod rings in no time. This line will help benefit<br />

those of all casting abilities to exceed the performance of traditional profile lines <strong>and</strong> help reach those<br />

fish that were previously just out of casting range, especially when faced with a limited casting space<br />

behind. As the name suggests…XS-tra Distance casting made easy!<br />

XS-Plus <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

All these lines are made to the same exacting profile as the XS fly lines but in instantly recognisable<br />

twin colours, where the density or profile changes. With an extended 'bleed' between colour/<br />

density change, this also means that the sink-tips avoid inherent ‘hinging’ or ‘kick’, so often<br />

associated with some sink-tip fly lines, thus ensuring excellent presentation <strong>and</strong> turnover.<br />

WFFTC XS-Plus Twin Colour Floating<br />

Ivory/Blue WF #3, 4, 5, 6, 7 & 8<br />

The original <strong>Snowbee</strong> twin colour fly line, first used by casting instructors <strong>and</strong><br />

demonstrators worldwide, to perfect <strong>and</strong> demonstrate their art but now made<br />

using the very latest in nano-coating technology. The best of the <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

XS st<strong>and</strong>ard fly line designs, combined with a simple colour enhancement, to<br />

assist every fly fisher at perfecting their technique <strong>and</strong> selecting the optimum<br />

XS-Plus Buzzer Sink-Tip <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

Whether buzzer fishing, nymphing, retrieving small lures or sea trout<br />

fishing after dark, these two lines offer superb control for perfect<br />

casting <strong>and</strong> fly presentation, when wanting to fish in or just beneath<br />

the surface. They offer minimal stretch for ultimate feel, but enough<br />

to prevent bounce off that can result from non-stretch lines. They also<br />

help massively when buzzer fishing, to convert ‘taps’ <strong>and</strong> ‘takes’ to<br />

‘fish-on!’, as the fish can hook themselves with a more direct contact<br />

to the fly <strong>and</strong> the low resistance created from being just beneath the<br />

surface, even before you may have felt them.<br />

WFHI XS-Plus ‘Hover’ Slow Intermediate<br />

(sink rate 1-1.5ips) Mustard/Ivory, WF #5, 6, 7 & 8<br />

The super slow, uniform sink rate of this line is designed to ‘hang’ sub-surface,<br />

hence the name. Some slow sinking lines simply sink too quickly <strong>and</strong> fall below<br />

invisible fish feeding just beneath the surface. Sink-tip lines can be an option,<br />

but this fishes slowly <strong>and</strong> evenly throughout its entire head length, offering<br />

exceptional control having first cut through the surface film. It then sinks very<br />

slowly with continuing immense control <strong>and</strong> combines all the benefits of the<br />

Neutral Density <strong>and</strong> Kelly Blue lines before it. The delightful memory-free finish,<br />

low stretch <strong>and</strong> super sensitive core with floating running line, keeps you in perfect<br />

touch <strong>and</strong> feel in all conditions. There is barely a line made today to match it.<br />

WFBT2 XS-Plus Buzzer 2 Sink-Tip (1.75 ips)<br />

Teal Blue/Ivory WF #5, 6, 7 & 8<br />

This is a br<strong>and</strong> new line <strong>and</strong> big brother to the original Buzzer line above. A sinktip<br />

line which exhibits superb casting performance, with a longer 10ft tip, which<br />

will hold longer sub-surface, giving straight line contact with the fly to avoid<br />

missed takes, whilst depth control is achieved through speed of retrieve. Ideal<br />

for serious trout, great in a bigger wave <strong>and</strong> fishing deeper than the original<br />

version <strong>and</strong> casts even better than the original Countdown options it replaces.<br />

XS-Plus Thistledown 2 <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

Our unique, super-fine profile range of lines defy logic... how can<br />

ONE line weight work on a range of rod weights? Believe us, when<br />

we say they do! Try them, for the best ‘thistledown’ presentation<br />

you will ever have experienced!<br />

Underst<strong>and</strong>ing just how it works is another story, because when it states #2-5wt there really is only<br />

one single line that can <strong>and</strong> does function amazingly on all weight rods, whether they be a #2, #3,<br />

#4 or #5wt! 'How?' is the question everybody asks. Well it comes down to simple physics, as the<br />

new <strong>and</strong> refined components of this line combine to give the thinnest, most supple, weight forward<br />

profile possible, that correspondingly weighs very little <strong>and</strong> delivers incredible stealth <strong>and</strong> accuracy<br />

at the same time. The ultra-thin diameter, roughly half that of a conventional fly line, creates minimal<br />

drag when casting. That means the line speed can be maintained throughout the casting action<br />

<strong>and</strong> delivers the fly or flies precisely where required, with the minimum effort possible.<br />

As its drag coefficient is so low, even in a strong cross-wind this line will cut through it<br />

to deliver the fly exactly where intended.<br />

The amazing ‘Thistledown’ was primarily designed for the river <strong>and</strong> light fishing on small<br />

stillwaters but is now a regular companion on almost any application where an angler enjoys<br />

finesse, stealth <strong>and</strong> accuracy. Thistledown is two-tone in colour, Shamrock Olive head with a<br />

Buckskin running line <strong>and</strong> 90ft in total length. The short 34.5ft head has a long, compound<br />

front taper <strong>and</strong> slender running line behind for effortless casting <strong>and</strong> extended presentation,<br />

to attain whatever range is necessary. The ultra-thin profile, combined<br />

with the super-smooth Nano coating helps maintain line speed <strong>and</strong> if<br />

used for nymphing, also provides extreme sensitivity. Both ends are<br />

pre-looped, with micro welded loops (left), to maintain the line’s<br />

outst<strong>and</strong>ing performance, so it is ready to go, straight from the box.<br />

WFTD XS-Plus Thistledown 2 <strong>Fly</strong> Line Floating<br />

Two lines: Both Olive /Buckskin #2-5wt <strong>and</strong> #5–7wt<br />

The original Thistledown fly line, first introduced in 2015 in the #2-5 weight.<br />

Utterly unique <strong>and</strong> still one of our fastest selling lines, as more <strong>and</strong> more anglers<br />

come to appreciate the advantages of using a Thistledown line, which soon<br />

resulted in the development of the stunningly successful #5-7wt option.<br />

Technology has also moved on, with the introduction of an even finer braided<br />

core allowing us to apply a thicker coating, whilst still maintaining the same<br />

overall diameter, providing an even higher floating line than the original models.<br />

“I first used a <strong>Snowbee</strong> XS line many years<br />

ago on the river Teign. It was like nothing<br />

I had used before, soft, supple, totally<br />

memory free <strong>and</strong> effortless to cast the fly<br />

wherever I needed it. I then discovered there<br />

was a whole range of nearly 50 XS lines of<br />

similar superb quality. Suddenly my whole<br />

fly fishing experience became transformed...<br />

now today that technology has moved on<br />

Salmon <strong>and</strong> <strong>Sea</strong>-Trout <strong>Fly</strong> lines<br />

A small, concise range of salmon <strong>and</strong> sea-trout lines,<br />

designed for the traditional <strong>and</strong> progressive angler alike.<br />

XS-Plus Short Spey Lines<br />

Our Short Spey line profiles have been designed to meet the dem<strong>and</strong>s of the modern<br />

salmon <strong>and</strong> sea-trout angler, fishing with a long or short double h<strong>and</strong>ed rod <strong>and</strong> for use<br />

in highly restricted areas, where the creation of a larger Spey loop is near impossible.<br />

By combining the best of the ‘Sc<strong>and</strong>inavian underh<strong>and</strong>’ style of casting <strong>and</strong> ‘shooting<br />

head’ line technology, these lines have a perfectly smooth transition<br />

to the integral shooting head running line.<br />

SSF XS-Plus Short Spey <strong>Fly</strong> Lines with<br />

Continuous Running Line (Floating)<br />

Light Blue/Dark Blue 24g #7/8, 36g #8/9, 40g #9/10 <strong>and</strong> 44g #10/11 - 44ft head<br />

The short head of these lines loads the rod really quickly for delivery at any range, saves<br />

time <strong>and</strong> shoots like a dream but with the same powerful turnover of a traditional Spey<br />

line. The fast front taper is especially suited to fishing with the <strong>Snowbee</strong> Poly-Coated<br />

Leaders, together providing the perfect presentation for whatever fly may be selected<br />

<strong>and</strong> at whatever depth may be required to seek ‘resting’ or ‘running’ fish.<br />

TSF XS-Plus Traditional Spey Lines (Floating)<br />

Ivory/Peach 36g #8/9, 40g #9/10 <strong>and</strong> 44g #10/11 - 62ft head<br />

On large open rivers there is normally plenty of room for Spey casting<br />

<strong>and</strong> the 62ft head of this line has proved the perfect length for the<br />

traditional Spey cast, whether casting your way down<br />

a tree-lined or steep sided river or open fields.<br />

Using a line with too short or too long a head<br />

<strong>and</strong> finding the optimum rod load point<br />

can be crucial so the colour change helps<br />

provide the perfect cast every time. Perfectly<br />

balanced for Spey casting in just about any<br />

river environment <strong>and</strong> the line of choice on<br />

longer, traditional Spey casting rods.<br />

SF XS-Plus <strong>Prestige</strong> Switch <strong>Fly</strong> Line (Floating)<br />

Ivory/ Hi-Viz Orange – 350gr #6/7, 400gr #7/8 <strong>and</strong> 450gr #8/9<br />

These modern day Switch lines are a little like a ‘compressed’ Spey line, with a short,<br />

heavy head (from 28-30ft) in a ‘Skagit’ style shooting head profile. Perfect for use<br />

when salmon fishing with lighter <strong>and</strong> shorter rods of today. The difference being the<br />

bulk of the profile is at the back of the head, providing power to create tight D-loops<br />

<strong>and</strong> compressing weight into the head, where<br />

it’s needed for truly effortless distance with<br />

controlled, accurate presentation. The short,<br />

steep rear taper then graduates smoothly<br />

into the fine diameter continuous running<br />

line to provide maximum shootability with<br />

no join. Switch lines are also ideally fished<br />

with a short <strong>Snowbee</strong> Poly-Coated Leader.<br />

40yds in length. This can be trimmed at reel end to fit any reel capacity <strong>and</strong> has a large pre-welded loop the other<br />

end, to allow the reel to be passed through, for quick <strong>and</strong> easy change of heads as <strong>and</strong> whenever necessary.<br />

XS-Plus Tropics Saltwater <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

In the past, manufacturers have relied upon a stiff,<br />

monofilament core to prevent their saltwater fly lines<br />

going limp <strong>and</strong> sticky in tropical conditions. By careful<br />

manipulation of our ‘Nano Technology’ coating material<br />

however, we have now developed a harder coating for<br />

these particular lines, which means they still possess all<br />

the Nano-Tec benefits but are also able to withst<strong>and</strong> the<br />

rigours of the saltwater environment, especially in the<br />

searing heat of the tropics <strong>and</strong> on the deck of a skiff,<br />

awaiting the perfect cast. These properties allow these<br />

lines to be equally at home, targeting bass <strong>and</strong> pollack in<br />

our temperate waters.<br />

TSWP-F XS Plus Tropics Saltwater ‘Presentation' Floating<br />

A 120ft floating line with a 41ft head <strong>and</strong> extended tapers front <strong>and</strong> back, designed to aid quick <strong>and</strong> accurate<br />

casting when targeting moving fish, with minimal delay <strong>and</strong> in whatever wind conditions may prevail. The front<br />

taper helps secure a good turnover across a wide range of flies, each with varying weight <strong>and</strong> sizes necessary for<br />

the species being pursued. This line is therefore ideal when ‘sight fishing’ for bonefish, permit or jacks etc. where<br />

a smooth <strong>and</strong> quiet ‘lay-down’ of the fly is so often required. The colour change at the back of the head indicates<br />

the precise, optimum shoot point, which together with the fine running line, makes distance casting effortless<br />

when targeting fish at range.<br />

When you need to get down deep <strong>and</strong> fast with either short or long casts, our Tropics ‘Depth-Charge’ delivers on<br />

all counts. The short, shooting head profile <strong>and</strong> fine running line, will punch through a stiff wind effortlessly, whilst<br />

the 5-6 ips fast-sink head will get your fly down fast, to the ‘strike zone’. The colour change at the back of the head,<br />

notifies the precise 'shoot point' making distance casting effortless <strong>and</strong> the 90ft of running line is easily drawn<br />

through the rings, extending the cast to a long range 120ft with minimum effort <strong>and</strong><br />

needing only the short 30ft head out of the tip ring to be able to do so!<br />

The noble Bonefish, has to be the No.1 target species for the serious<br />

distant water fly fisherman. Notoriously 'spooky' in gin-clear waters, good,<br />

accurate, delicate presentation is essential to lure this wily predator into<br />

what is often a ‘smash take’ followed by the infamous screaming run that<br />

tests your line, reel <strong>and</strong> rod to the limit! This is where our well-proven XS<br />

profile comes into play, providing the perfect line profile to deliver what’s<br />

required. Our new Bonefish line is made with a S<strong>and</strong> Cream head to blend<br />

in with its surroundings <strong>and</strong> a sky blue running line, to give the angler a<br />

good sense of where the fish is heading.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> XS <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

Designed by us over 30 years ago <strong>and</strong> still reputedly<br />

the best traditional fly line on the market today.<br />

The secret behind the legendary performance of the <strong>Snowbee</strong> XS <strong>Fly</strong> Lines has been the unique<br />

coating formula <strong>and</strong> profile, in conjunction with the classic low-stretch core, producing the most<br />

supple <strong>and</strong> memory free performance the line is renowned for. Many have tried <strong>and</strong> failed to<br />

replicate this formula, but there is still only one ‘original’ <strong>Snowbee</strong> XS fly line.<br />

Over the years there have been minor changes in production <strong>and</strong> our Nano-Technology is a winning<br />

formula across the range with its unmistakeable profile <strong>and</strong> suppleness. In using this new technology, we<br />

have refined the original formula <strong>and</strong> manufacturing techniques to enhance the already superb, supple,<br />

memory-free performance so loved by fly fishers worldwide. For many years the <strong>Snowbee</strong> XS Ivory<br />

Floating has been our top selling line, <strong>and</strong> reputation has it as still the best-selling floating line in the UK.<br />

If you don’t already know why… just try one <strong>and</strong> you will soon find out!<br />

XS Sub-Surface <strong>Fly</strong> Lines<br />

Exactly the same design <strong>and</strong> profile as the 90ft XS floating lines these both cast<br />

superbly, with each performing according to their density make up.<br />

Great for moderate distances with every cast on any matching weight of fly rod <strong>and</strong><br />

built to the same exacting st<strong>and</strong>ards as all the ‘XS’ Nano fly lines BUT providing a<br />

WFI XS Intermediate (Sink rate 2.5ips) Aqua – WF5-WF8<br />

Combining the original Kelly Blue <strong>and</strong> Clear Intermediate into one fly line has produced a fly<br />

line of effortless, slick casting ability, being exactly the same as the traditional XS floating in profile.<br />

Distance <strong>and</strong> presentation are therefore guaranteed, at a sink rate ideal to reliably search the water from<br />

the surface down, especially with lures, damsels <strong>and</strong> other mobile patterns. A hugely versatile line, great<br />

for loch style fishing from the boat or accurately exploring all holding spots from the bank, without the<br />

need for a massive clear back-cast when space is tight. Great in the wind too in a neutral Aqua shade, to<br />

hunt beneath the surface <strong>and</strong> find fish cruising or holding lower down but not necessarily on the bottom.<br />

The very slim, hardly discernible weight forward profile of this uniform fast sinking line, enables excellent<br />

distance to be achieved easily when needing to get range <strong>and</strong> depth to present flies in the target zone. Low<br />

stretch core also enables excellent sensitivity but does not exhibit the issue of other fast sinking lines that can<br />

be non-stretch <strong>and</strong> have a tendency to ‘bounce’ fish off especially when fishing barbless. The slick, Nano-<br />

Tec coating is deceptively smooth <strong>and</strong> provides a great line for ‘fishing the hang’ or boobies, effortlessly<br />

controlled close along the bottom, or achieving quick depth in a big blow without a long <strong>and</strong> difficult cast!<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Waders – it’s all about reliability<br />

Back in 1984, <strong>Snowbee</strong> introduced the very first<br />

lightweight PVC/Nylon waders to the UK market,<br />

<strong>and</strong> what a revelation that proved to be.<br />

Until <strong>Snowbee</strong>’s intervention we had all been ‘clumping’ around in heavy<br />

rubber waders. Remember how they had the habit of cracking <strong>and</strong> perishing,<br />

causing leaks after one season? But the new lightweight <strong>Snowbee</strong> waders<br />

changed all that, <strong>and</strong> we advertised them with the slogan ‘No more second<br />

season leaks’. We have been setting the st<strong>and</strong>ard in wader design <strong>and</strong><br />

innovation ever since. As the pioneers of modern day wading comfort, after<br />

36 years, we still remain number one in wader design <strong>and</strong> technology. It’s<br />

something we are justly proud of, <strong>and</strong> the development continues to this day.<br />

Breathable comfort <strong>and</strong> ultimate reliability<br />

At the end of the day, all any angler wants out of a pair of waders is to<br />

be comfortable <strong>and</strong> more importantly remain dry! How hard can that<br />

be? Well actually, very hard. Which is why, over the years, every br<strong>and</strong><br />

of breathable wader has had its problems, due to the technological<br />

challenges of making a wader thin enough to be breathable yet hardy<br />

enough to withst<strong>and</strong> the most common cause of leaks – fine thorn <strong>and</strong><br />

gorse punctures. These two opposites have challenged wader designers<br />

since the early days of breathables over 20 years ago.<br />

In 2018 we finally solved this dilemma, with the introduction of our<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> STX range. This range used a performance material,<br />

retaining our famous Soft-Touch (ST) outer finish, but on a totally new<br />

groundbreaking fabric. And it didn’t stop there. We looked at the main<br />

causes of wader leaks – over stressed seams <strong>and</strong> puncture damage, <strong>and</strong><br />

we solved both. By improving both the cut <strong>and</strong> size range available,<br />

we now have a wader to fit just about every size <strong>and</strong> shape <strong>and</strong> which<br />

provides wading comfort without stressing the seams.<br />

See opposite for details.<br />

To solve the problems of puncture damage we reinforced both the fronts<br />

of the legs <strong>and</strong> the rear seat area with a second layer of breathable<br />

fabric, providing a class-leading six layers in the most vulnerable areas,<br />

where you need it most.<br />

And the proof we succeeded? After five season's sales the <strong>Prestige</strong> STX<br />

proved to be our most reliable breathable wader ever!<br />

Total warmth, coupled with total reliability<br />

As the first company to introduce sub £100 neoprene waders to the UK<br />

market, over 20 years ago, we have learned a thing or two about their<br />

design in that time. While other br<strong>and</strong>s sacrificed material <strong>and</strong> build<br />

quality in chasing down the price, <strong>Snowbee</strong> took another route. Working<br />

with one of the top neoprene wader factories in Asia <strong>and</strong> using only<br />

quality materials, we developed a range of top quality neoprene<br />

waders at a realistic price. Not as cheap as some, but while those<br />

br<strong>and</strong>s suffered with notorious unreliability, our Classic Neoprenes<br />

have proved, over the past five years, to not only be the most reliable<br />

11192 <strong>Prestige</strong> STX<br />

Stockingfoot Waders<br />

11290 210D<br />

Wadermaster Waders<br />

neoprene waders we have ever made, but our most reliable<br />

waders ever! Quite an achievement for a material which has quite<br />

a chequered history with some manufacturers, due to the use of<br />

inferior grades of ‘neoprene’.<br />

How to store your <strong>Snowbee</strong> waders<br />

All <strong>Snowbee</strong> waders are made from synthetic materials,<br />

which are not susceptible to cracking or perishing, like the<br />

old rubber waders were. The sun will degrade synthetic<br />

materials, so it is recommended that waders are stored<br />

out of direct sunlight.<br />

Creasing does not adversely affect the performance<br />

of waders, but does look unsightly, so the best way of<br />

avoiding this is to hang the waders upside-down in a<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Wader Rack. After use in saltwater, or brackish<br />

water, the waders <strong>and</strong> felt soles should always be hosed<br />

down with fresh water.<br />

It is important to dry your waders thoroughly, inside as<br />

well as out. If not, mould can develop which can cause<br />

damage to the breathable membrane resulting eventually<br />

in a leak.<br />

For those who don’t want to breathe…<br />

Not every anglers needs, or wants, to pay the premium for<br />

breathable waders. For those who just want total reliability <strong>and</strong><br />

rugged performance in the harshest conditions, our famous<br />

210D Nylon Wadermaster is a ‘go-anywhere’ wader which will<br />

find favour with anglers looking for strength, performance <strong>and</strong><br />

long-life reliability.<br />

In addition, our Granite PVC models have again proved to be<br />

totally reliable, with near zero return rates in the four years since<br />

their launch. They really are superb value for money.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> now has the widest choice of wader models, materials<br />

<strong>and</strong> sizes on the market. From basic PVC waders, through<br />

to tough Nylon waders; from basic, lightweight Ranger<br />

breathables, through to our class-leading <strong>Prestige</strong> STX models<br />

<strong>and</strong> great value Classic neoprenes, we can provide a wader of<br />

choice, design <strong>and</strong> style for every angler <strong>and</strong> every purpose.<br />

Wader size is all-important<br />

Following these instructions should prolong the life of your waders <strong>and</strong> will<br />

explain why some anglers get years out of their waders <strong>and</strong> some get a lot less.<br />

Fitting waders<br />

Having manufactured every type of waders for nearly<br />

40 years, we have seen just about every fault, issue or<br />

problem there is to see. And you might be surprised to<br />

hear that in more cases than not, it is not the waders at<br />

fault, but often the wearer or the tackle shop salesman.<br />

Apart from the obvious puncture damage, the most common<br />

leakage points we see time <strong>and</strong> again for all waders are<br />

the ankle (where the boot or sock joins the upper material),<br />

at the knees, at the crotch, or the seams. Very often these<br />

problems are not due to manufacturing faults, but are more<br />

likely due to the wrong size of waders being chosen.<br />

Simple rules to ensure you get<br />

the correct size of waders<br />

l When trying on waders in a tackle shop, try to wear similar<br />

clothes to those you wear when fishing for a realistic fit.<br />

l Try the waders in a number of different positions, such as<br />

those you would realistically have to get into whilst fishing.<br />

l Kneel down in them as if unhooking a fish (3). Sit down in<br />

them, like you will in the hut or on the back of the car whilst<br />

pulling on your boots. Make sure you can get your foot up<br />

onto a chair (2), like stepping out of the river <strong>and</strong> onto the<br />

bank. Then finally kneel down on the floor, sit on your heels<br />

<strong>and</strong> lean your body forward, as this represents the ‘longest’<br />

position your waders will ever be in.<br />

If doing any of these manoeuvres you feel the waders pull<br />

tight at the knees, thighs, or around your backside, then the<br />

waders do not fit you properly <strong>and</strong> you need a larger size.<br />

Any restrictions in movement put strain on the seams<br />

<strong>and</strong> the stitching in them. The weight of an adult sitting,<br />

or crouching down in waders that are too small, can put<br />

enormous strain on the seams, to the point of leakage.<br />

Microscopic pin-hole punctures can easily be caused by<br />

brushing against a gorse bush, or more commonly by<br />

st<strong>and</strong>ing on the wader fabric whilst getting changed. Try<br />

to avoid this by sitting sideways on your car seat or on the<br />

tail gate, to put waders on <strong>and</strong> off. Another frequent cause<br />

of damage to the ankle seam is through st<strong>and</strong>ing on one<br />

sock toe with the other foot, in order to pull the waders<br />

off (see right). Don’t do it! Always try to sit down <strong>and</strong> pull<br />

each sock off in turn, gripping the waders at the back of<br />

the ankle <strong>and</strong> pulling the sock off. If you do puncture your<br />

waders on barbed wire, gorse or with a fly, get it repaired<br />

quickly, as dampness inside can lead to mould, which can<br />

cause further damage to the breathable membrane<br />

making matters worse!<br />

Above: DO NOT pull your wader<br />

socks off by st<strong>and</strong>ing on one toe,<br />

with the other foot <strong>and</strong> pulling.<br />

This will over-stress the ankle seam<br />

<strong>and</strong> likely lead to the stitching<br />

tearing, resulting in a leak!<br />

Below: This is the CORRECT way<br />

to remove wader socks. Sit down,<br />

or lean against the car or a tree,<br />

grip the sock at the BACK of the<br />

ankle <strong>and</strong> pull each sock off in turn.<br />

1 1<br />

This photo shows a correctly sized pair<br />

of waders. There is room in the body<br />

<strong>and</strong> the legs are long enough, so they do not<br />

pull tight, when crouching, kneeling or sitting.<br />

2<br />

Put one foot up on a chair, to replicate<br />

the action of stepping up, onto the bank.<br />

You should be able to do this without any<br />

‘tight-spots’. If not – you need a bigger size.<br />

2<br />

Try kneeling, as if you were un-hooking<br />

3 3<br />

a fish. If the body or crotch seam feel<br />

‘tight’, you need a bigger body size. If the<br />

legs pull tight at the front or back of the<br />

ankle seam, you need a longer leg size.<br />

market today, with boot sizes available from<br />

4 to 13, plus our popular ‘Fuller Body’ (FB) <strong>and</strong><br />

Following the redesign of the top-selling <strong>Prestige</strong> range, <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

remained in their rightful position… as No.1 in waders! The <strong>Prestige</strong><br />

STX Breathable range competes with very best on the market, irrespective of price.<br />

Material: We have retained our popular Soft-Touch (ST) material so liked by anglers. What sets this apart<br />

from other breathable wader materials is the outer layer, which has a 'peach-skin' finish. Not only does<br />

this look <strong>and</strong> feel superb, but the finish makes it totally flexible, rustle-free <strong>and</strong> silent.<br />

We have incorporated this into a new, unique 3-layer material, which takes breathable wader<br />

technology onto a completely new level. This top quality breathable material is a blend of 24% nylon,<br />

59% polyester <strong>and</strong> 17% polyurethane to provide strength <strong>and</strong> durability. The outer material has a DWR<br />

(Durable Water Repellent) treatment, rated at L10/80 – meaning it retains 80% of its DWR performance,<br />

even after washing 10 times! The inner laminate utilises our highly reliable Vapour-Tec® breathable<br />

membrane, for superior performance, providing a breathability of 4,000g/m 2 /24hrs <strong>and</strong> a hydrostatic<br />

water pressure resistance (waterproofness) of 15,000mm.<br />

Design: The STX range utilises our well proven cutting style <strong>and</strong> extensive trials of the prototype<br />

waders have shown these to be the best fitting, most comfortable waders we have ever made. We have<br />

combined all our previous ‘St<strong>and</strong>ard’, ‘FB’ <strong>and</strong> ‘Short’ size fittings into just one size chart for convenience.<br />

Chest <strong>and</strong> h<strong>and</strong>warmer pockets<br />

Wading belt <strong>and</strong> seat pad<br />

Over the years, we have learnt that the majority of breathable wader leaks are caused by puncture<br />

damage. Needle sharp gorse or thorns can cause pin-pricks in breathable material, invisible to the<br />

naked eye, but so frustrating when you enter the water. To help avoid this, our current models feature<br />

a second layer of material where you need it most – down the front of the legs, from above the knee to<br />

the sock or boot join <strong>and</strong> on the seat of the waders. This additional layer takes the overall thickness up<br />

to a class-leading 6-layers, but by utilising two separate layers, they still retain their high breathability –<br />

unlike 5-layer materials which have very limited breathability.<br />

The twin front pockets are fitted with top quality, waterproof YKK pocket zips, to provide fly box,<br />

leader or accessory pockets, as waterproof as it’s possible to get. Behind these are generously-sized<br />

h<strong>and</strong>-warmer pockets for those cold spring <strong>and</strong> autumn days.<br />

11192 <strong>Prestige</strong> STX Stockingfoot Waders<br />

Our Stockingfoot model features 4mm, 3-panel neoprene<br />

socks using our new cutting design, making them the best<br />

fitting, most comfortable we have ever worn. In addition to the<br />

high-density sole panel, which prevents heel compression<br />

leaks, this cutting-style tapers the ankles, to remove excess<br />

material, which can otherwise crease up inside your<br />

wading boots. The 3-panel design ensures all the seams<br />

run around <strong>and</strong> not under your foot, for a more moulded<br />

fit <strong>and</strong> added comfort. The integral gravel guards have<br />

front lacing hooks <strong>and</strong> rubberised elastication around<br />

the bottom, to prevent them riding up when walking.<br />

This model offers the very best value for money of any<br />

breathable wader on the market.<br />

210D Nylon Wadermaster Waders<br />

Mention the name <strong>Snowbee</strong> <strong>and</strong> most people would associate it with QUALITY<br />

WADERS… <strong>and</strong> quite rightly so. Waders is where it all began. We were the first<br />

company to introduce lightweight PVC waders to the UK fly fishing market <strong>and</strong> since<br />

those early days almost 40 years ago, the range has steadily grown <strong>and</strong> improved.<br />

Two years ago we combined two of our best-ever wader models<br />

<strong>and</strong> materials. Our super heavy-duty Wadermaster model has<br />

been available in various forms for over 25 years, during which<br />

time, it has been the wader of choice for anyone wanting<br />

the ultimate ‘bullet-proof’ wader, including fish farmers,<br />

river-keepers, fire brigades, water authorities <strong>and</strong> the<br />

Environment Agency. So we re-introduced our popular<br />

210 Denier Nylon material – a top seller for over 15 years,<br />

but in the original Wadermaster design.<br />

They’re not breathable, but what they are is lightweight,<br />

incredibly tough, durable <strong>and</strong> hardwearing. They deflect thorns<br />

<strong>and</strong> gorse like no other material <strong>and</strong> if you want a pair of waders<br />

that is going to last… this is it.<br />

The 210D nylon material, which is light, flexible <strong>and</strong> super-tough,<br />

has a soft, laminated PVC lining, to ensure it remains 100%<br />

waterproof <strong>and</strong> provides all-day comfort.<br />

Over the past four seasons, the Granite PVC waders have proved to be totally reliable, with near<br />

zero returns! An amazing feat, bearing in mind how many we sell of these quality waders!<br />

Manufactured from durable, hard-wearing, reinforced PVC laminate, which despite being as tough as it gets, is<br />

also extremely soft, light <strong>and</strong> flexible for added comfort. The outer PVC layer is laminated to a tough, woven<br />

nylon inner lining, making the material super-strong <strong>and</strong> almost rip-proof, whilst remaining light weight.<br />

Granite waders use a unique seam welding technology where seams are fused together<br />

with an integral tape, using a new Sonic Welding process. This leaves the finished<br />

seams immensely strong, <strong>and</strong> almost completely flush, avoiding seam-chafe.<br />

Above left: New elasticated braces with rear Duraflex buckle.<br />

Right: Elasticated waist belt <strong>and</strong> flat-profile sonic-weld seams.<br />

additional 6-8” on the chest measurement<br />

19440 <strong>Prestige</strong> Folding Wading Staff<br />

Our popular, lightweight aluminium wading staff was improved for<br />

2020. The slim profile tubular shaft offers reduced water resistance,<br />

whilst wading, but we have changed the colour to a matt green for<br />

this year, to avoid any 'flash' that might spook fish. The 4-section<br />

design locks firmly in place <strong>and</strong> tensions with a sliding collar, so<br />

the staff cannot collapse even if you catch the rubber cap between<br />

rocks. Remove the 'silent wading' rubber cap <strong>and</strong> you have a<br />

hardened steel tip for extra grip <strong>and</strong> it comes with an optional screw<br />

on ‘tip-cup’ to spread the load in soft s<strong>and</strong>, mud or snow. Ergonomic<br />

rubber h<strong>and</strong>le grip, with adjustable wrist strap <strong>and</strong> detachable,<br />

elasticated lanyard. Packs down into a neat, neoprene belt pouch.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> XStreme Thermal Jacket<br />

Our XStreme Thermal Jacket is ultra-lightweight, packs down into the<br />

smallest space, but packs a big punch in terms of thermal properties!<br />

Finished in an attractive olive green outer nylon shell, the filling is<br />

a synthetic Polyball polyester, with a fill weight of a class-leading<br />

425g. The issue with most thermal jackets, whether down or<br />

synthetic filling, is that they lose much of their insulation properties,<br />

once the filling gets wet. To help avoid this the 380T nylon outer<br />

shell is treated with a 'Matt Ciring finish'. This is a technique used on<br />

textiles for this type of use, which involves treating the finished cloth<br />

with a heat <strong>and</strong> pressure process, which makes the outer surface<br />

waterproof, but gives it a matt finish <strong>and</strong> a soft feel.<br />

In addition to this, the outer surface is then treated with a DWR<br />

(Durable Water Repellent) coating, so light rain will bead-up <strong>and</strong> run<br />

off the surface. Although not designed as a ‘waterproof garment’,<br />

this not only helps keep you dry if caught out by an unexpected<br />

shower, but more importantly, keeps the polyester filling dry,<br />

so it retains its thermal properties.<br />

New for<br />

<strong>2023</strong><br />

Our new jacket makes an ideal outer-layer on crisp, dry days, or<br />

a perfect thermal mid-layer, under an outer breathable shell, to<br />

keep you toasty warm even on the coldest days. Team it up with<br />

our amazing Mini-Pack Jacket on p53 for the perfect, flexible<br />

combination.<br />

For additional comfort <strong>and</strong> warmth, the high collar is lined with a<br />

self-colour, knitted <strong>and</strong> elasticated collar lining <strong>and</strong> the bottom<br />

hem <strong>and</strong> cuffs, are bound with a self-colour, elasticated piping,<br />

for a warm, snug fit on even the coldest days.<br />

The full-length front 2-way zip has an internal cover-flap to keep<br />

the wind out. There are 2 large, side zipped pockets, plus 2 deep<br />

‘pouch’ pockets inside, one of them with an additional secure<br />

zipped pocket for mobile, wallet, car keys etc.<br />

Weighing in at just 455g (size M), our new jacket packs down into<br />

the smallest of spaces, making it ideal for travel, or to stuff in a kitbag<br />

when out fishing for the day.<br />

Dartmoor Fleece Jacket & Gilet<br />

Our Dartmoor fleece jacket <strong>and</strong> gilet combine a stylish<br />

design with the very latest fleece material technology,<br />

to provide an impressive performance<br />

in even the harshest conditions!<br />

Our Dartmoor range has its roots firmly in the harsh, rugged<br />

l<strong>and</strong>scape of Devon’s Dartmoor. Rising to over 2,000 feet above sea<br />

level, the exposed granite hilltops, known as tors, offer little protection<br />

in harsh winter weather. In these conditions you need good quality<br />

thermal clothing just to survive, let alone keep warm!<br />

That’s where our new Dartmoor range comes in.<br />

Made with the very latest 300g double-brushed, anti-pill, double<br />

Polar fleece making it super-soft <strong>and</strong> super warm. This fabric exhibits<br />

many of wool's qualities but weighs a fraction of the lightest available<br />

woollens. It is hydrophobic, holding less than 1% of its weight in<br />

water, so retains much of its insulating quality even when wet. It<br />

is machine washable, dries quickly <strong>and</strong> makes a great alternative<br />

for those who are allergic or sensitive to wool. Polyester fleece is<br />

extremely warm because of its structure. The pile surface provides<br />

space for air pockets between the threads, <strong>and</strong> this goes for both<br />

sides of the fabric. Because it is moisture-resistant, it can keep<br />

wearers warm even under extreme weather conditions, whilst still<br />

breathable, to keep you dry when things warm up.<br />

Mini-pack from <strong>Snowbee</strong>… does just what it says<br />

on the tin! The smallest, lightest waterproof<br />

jacket you’re likely to come across!<br />

11188 Mini-Pack Waterproof Jacket<br />

We’ve all been caught out by the weather when we wished<br />

we’d taken a waterproof! Our Mini-Pack Waterproof Jacket<br />

solves the problem. Packing down into a stuff-bag measuring<br />

an amazing 8” x 4” <strong>and</strong> weighing just 388g, the Mini-Pack still<br />

‘packs a mighty punch’ in terms of specification! Manufactured<br />

from a quality rip-stop nylon outer shell, treated with a DWR<br />

finish, laminated to a high performance Vapour-Tec breathable<br />

membrane. W/P: 10,000 mm H 2<br />

O, MVT: 3,000 g/m 2 /24hrs, with<br />

a laminated Tricot inner layer, for additional strength.<br />

Fitted with two flush chest pockets with water-resistant zips <strong>and</strong><br />

bellows gussets across the bottom, allowing them to exp<strong>and</strong><br />

when larger fly boxes are stored. Behind these are h<strong>and</strong>-warmer<br />

pockets for those cold days, when a bit of protection against the<br />

elements is appreciated.<br />

Waterproof Jacket<br />

The main front zip is a water-resistant style for added protection, while<br />

the high collar features a roll-away storage for the fully adjustable 3-panel<br />

hood, which has a stiffened peak. The cuffs are our waterproof Neoprene<br />

design, to keep out the elements <strong>and</strong> have flush fitting Velcro adjusters<br />

that cannot catch on fly lines. On the back <strong>and</strong> shoulders are thin beads of<br />

trim, in reflective material, for additional safety in the dark.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> XS <strong>Fishing</strong> Shirts<br />

Our new XS fishing shirts are equally suitable fishing the flats for bonefish as fishing the local<br />

reservoir. Made from a tough, poly-cotton material, they are quick drying, but also retain their<br />

smart appearance for that 'trophy fish' photo!<br />

Having tried all the 'high performance', 'technical' materials over the<br />

years, we came to the conclusion, that overall, you can’t beat the<br />

tried <strong>and</strong> tested polycotton material, for cool comfort in pretty much<br />

all conditions. A shirt which keeps you cool in the summer, offers<br />

good sun protection, whilst still retaining its smart appearance,<br />

even at the end of a long, hard day’s fishing!<br />

Utilising the same design as our popular ‘Solaris’ range, but in a<br />

material more suited to our temperate climate. Our soft, poly-cotton<br />

material uses a blend of fibres created to provide the advantages<br />

of both cotton <strong>and</strong> the poly fibres, into one fabric. Namely tear <strong>and</strong><br />

crease-resistance, meaning less ironing, with good wicking properties,<br />

when things get hot! The material also breathes to keep you cool in the<br />

summer months, while the top half of the shirt is lined front <strong>and</strong> back<br />

with a fine polyester mesh, covered by external vent flaps, which allow<br />

free air passage to prevent the outer material sticking to the skin.<br />

There are two large front bellows pockets for fly boxes, a sunglasses<br />

holder button-hole on the chest <strong>and</strong> the sleeves features Swiss Cuff<br />

tabs <strong>and</strong> buttons to hold the sleeves in place, when rolled up for<br />

casting. The concealed button-down collars prevent that annoying<br />

collar-flap, when fishing in a breeze. These stylish shirts come in the two<br />

most popular colours – Sky Blue <strong>and</strong> a light Stone/Sage Green.<br />

Material: 65% Polyester, 35% cotton<br />

Colours: Light Sage or Sky Blue<br />

<strong>Prestige</strong> Long <strong>Fly</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong> Waistcoat<br />

Our original English style Long <strong>Fly</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong> Waistcoat but with a modern twist.<br />

Over the past 10 to 15 years we have all adopted the American style mid-length fly vests<br />

which double as bank or wading vests. As we are constantly asked by bank anglers for<br />

a long style waistcoat, we have based ours on an original model from many years<br />

ago, but updated with new materials, pocket designs <strong>and</strong> modern<br />

features. Ideal for the reservoir or bank angler.<br />

11624 <strong>Prestige</strong> Long<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong> Waistcoat<br />

Made from a hard-wearing polyester cotton<br />

with a brushed outer surface. The shoulders<br />

are re-enforced with matching corduroy, which<br />

helps spread the load. Velcro epaulettes lock<br />

fishing bag straps in place, so they don’t slide<br />

off while walking. For extra warmth there is a<br />

thick, brushed cotton check lining <strong>and</strong> all the<br />

perimeter hems are re-enforced with leatherette<br />

trim for extra wear. An inside waist adjuster<br />

cord with toggle-loks ensures a snug fit.<br />

Ultralite Chest-Pack<br />

Rear D-Ring for<br />

l<strong>and</strong>ing net<br />

Our Chest-Pack is designed for the roving<br />

angler who likes to travel light!<br />

There are times when roving a river bank or moorl<strong>and</strong> reservoir, when<br />

you don’t want all the paraphernalia associated with a traditional fly vest<br />

or back-pack. When you just want to travel light with the bare essentials<br />

for a day’s fishing, that’s where our Ultralite Chest-Pack is ideal.<br />

11628 Ultralite Chest-Pack<br />

Constructed from a tough 840D rip-stop polyester fabric, for strength <strong>and</strong><br />

light-weight, with a PU rear coating, making the material 100% waterproof. It<br />

features two, large fly-box pockets, with further internal flap pockets for leaders <strong>and</strong><br />

accessories. In front of these are two smaller zipped pockets for small fly boxes,<br />

tippet spools <strong>and</strong> accessories. On the front of these are a zipped mesh pocket one<br />

side, for leaders, floatants, sinkants etc <strong>and</strong> a convenient, fold-down, ripple-foam<br />

fly-patch on the other.<br />

Down either side of the main pockets, are two external coil retractors, with neat<br />

covers, for forceps <strong>and</strong> snips. These can drop neatly into the looped side<br />

clip attachments, to prevent them swinging around <strong>and</strong> catching fly<br />

lines. The main shoulder straps feature two elasticated loops one side<br />

for floatants <strong>and</strong> sinkants <strong>and</strong> on the other side a novel tippet spool<br />

holder, which can hold up to 4 or 5 small tippet spools.<br />

The two main chest compartments zip together in the centre <strong>and</strong> also<br />

have an elasticated centre strap, to allow more freedom of movement<br />

on hot days. The entire shoulder straps <strong>and</strong> pocket assembly have<br />

an air-mesh rear lining, to help keep you cool on hot days <strong>and</strong> the<br />

elasticated side straps are fully adjustable, meaning one size fits all.<br />

Coil retractor<br />

each side<br />

There is a strong rear D-ring for a l<strong>and</strong>ing net, two side<br />

D-rings for further accessories <strong>and</strong> a rod loop <strong>and</strong><br />

Velcro shoulder strap, to hold your rod, whilst changing<br />

flies or leaders. All zips are 'reversed' featuring cover<br />

shields, to help keep the pockets water-resistant.<br />

13122 Neoprene Gloves<br />

A sturdy pair of neoprene gloves, made in a soft 2.5mm<br />

Neoprene to keep you warm on the coldest days.<br />

Material panels run down each side of the gloves<br />

<strong>and</strong> between the fingers to provide added<br />

flexibility <strong>and</strong> comfort. The back of the<br />

gloves has a jersey knit lining, whilst<br />

the palms <strong>and</strong> fingers use a<br />

patterned rubber for extra<br />

grip. Thumb, index <strong>and</strong><br />

middle fingers have<br />

‘flip-up’ tips, with Velcro<br />

pads to hold them<br />

back – allows knot tying<br />

without taking the gloves<br />

off. Velcro adjustable<br />

wrist cuff.<br />

Size: S, M, L, XL<br />

Colour: Dark Green with Black palm<br />

Gloves<br />

13124 SFT Neoprene Gloves<br />

Unlike traditional neoprene where the seams are butt glued <strong>and</strong> blind<br />

stitched, with our <strong>Sea</strong>mless Fusion Technology (SFT) the seams are<br />

welded <strong>and</strong> then an ultra-thin, highly elastic tape applied. The result is<br />

a 100% waterproof, seamless product. The neoprene used is a 4-way<br />

high-stretch, 100% CR neoprene, but only 1mm thick, so for the first time<br />

you can have a neoprene fishing glove, which is a tight fit <strong>and</strong> ultra-thin,<br />

allowing you to feel everything <strong>and</strong> remain 100% dry. Silicone, screen<br />

printed palm <strong>and</strong> finger panels for superb grip <strong>and</strong> feel, even when wet.<br />

13141 Lightweight Neoprene Gloves<br />

A lightweight neoprene glove with a nylon Jersey knit palm<br />

with rubberised ‘dots’ pattern for extra grip. The thin palm<br />

material allows the gloves to be worn whilst fishing<br />

or shooting, while the Neoprene back gives added<br />

warmth, where it’s needed. The tips of the<br />

thumb <strong>and</strong> index finger are left exposed<br />

to allow tying of knots, or loading,<br />

without removing the gloves.<br />

Size: S, M, L, XL<br />

Technical Boot Socks<br />

We all make do with any old socks inside boots<br />

<strong>and</strong> waders <strong>and</strong> often pay the price of blisters <strong>and</strong><br />

sore feet! This is usually caused by chafe or excess<br />

perspiration. Our new knitted mid-length boot socks<br />

are purpose designed to prevent this.<br />

Made from CoolMax ® yarn, this innovative blend of<br />

wool, cotton, polyester, elastane <strong>and</strong> nylon with soft<br />

padded sole <strong>and</strong> heel, provides maximum support <strong>and</strong><br />

comfort. The ‘climate regulating’ CoolMax ® yarn wicks<br />

moisture away from the skin, to help keep feet drier<br />

<strong>and</strong> cooler, all day long which helps prevent blisters.<br />

How to measure for hat size<br />

To measure your size, use a tape measure<br />

<strong>and</strong> measure the circumference of your<br />

head, loosely, running the tape just above<br />

the ears <strong>and</strong> approximately 1” above the<br />

eyebrows. Then refer to the chart below for<br />

your correct size.<br />

Ultra-Violet Protection Factor<br />

When we sent the material sample to the SGS Laboratory for<br />

testing, it went off the scale! It came back with an ‘actual’ UPF<br />

(Ultra-Violet Protection Factor) of 2569 allowing just 0.03% of<br />

UVA <strong>and</strong> 0.04% of UVB to pass through! Unfortunately, the official<br />

rating system only goes up to a factor 50+… the equivalent of<br />

wearing factor 50 sunscreen, so we had to settle for this!<br />

Spectre Sunglasses<br />

Combining traditional, retro styles with modern wrap-arounds <strong>and</strong> using<br />

the latest, state-of-the-art lens technology, our new flagship Spectre range<br />

offers a sunglass for every possible purpose at class leading prices!<br />

When we set about designing the new Spectre range of sunglasses,<br />

we knew we had to come up with something different to meet the<br />

dem<strong>and</strong>s of modern day anglers. It’s no longer just about<br />

eye protection – you need to look <strong>and</strong> feel good in your<br />

shades <strong>and</strong> if you feel good…. you catch more fish!<br />

All models are made with lightweight polycarbonate frames,<br />

fitted with the latest 1mm TAC (Tri-Acetate Cellulose) lenses<br />

which offer outst<strong>and</strong>ing, distortion-free, optical clarity.<br />

The polarising filters offer superb glare elimination allowing<br />

you to spot fish better <strong>and</strong> follow their movements.<br />

The st<strong>and</strong>ard models are available in a lens choice of either<br />

Smoke Grey – best for bright light conditions, Amber – best<br />

for lower-light conditions or Yellow – ideal for evening <strong>and</strong><br />

night fishing or under tree cover, due to their ‘light gathering’<br />

properties. in addition, we added two new lens finishes in<br />

2020; one in Electric Blue Mirror finish <strong>and</strong> one in<br />

Green/Yellow Mirror finish – both perfect for bright light<br />

conditions, such as those encountered when flats fishing,<br />

but equally suitable on the reservoir on bright days.<br />

Available in a range of frame <strong>and</strong> lens combinations to suit<br />

all tastes <strong>and</strong> fishing requirements. The range features either<br />

satin black frames with grey/black graphite pattern frame arms<br />

with subtle red trim, or gloss finish tortoiseshell frames.<br />

All models come complete with a quality, hard protective case<br />

(below), a micro-fibre cleaning pouch <strong>and</strong> come in a smart<br />

presentation box.<br />

18044 Spectre Magnifier Unpolarised<br />

Like many of us who require reading glasses for close-up work, the hassle<br />

this involves when changing flies, or leaders, will be well known to you!<br />

Our new, innovative design features lightweight nylon frames with quality<br />

polycarbonate lenses. Laminated to the bottom of the lenses are small<br />

+2.5 magnifier lenses. These are small enough to be unobtrusive in normal<br />

use, but glance down, as you do when changing leaders or flies <strong>and</strong> the +2.5 magnification brings<br />

everything into sharp focus. These are un-polarised, due to the magnifying lenses preventing this, but<br />

provide great sun <strong>and</strong> glare protection, just the same. Available in black frame with smoke lenses <strong>and</strong><br />

tortoiseshell frame with amber lenses, both fitted with rubber nose pads <strong>and</strong> rubber frame tip-arms, for<br />

grip. Come with a hard protective case <strong>and</strong> micro-fibre cleaning pouch.<br />

Weight: 26g.<br />

18044-2 Spectre Magnifier Unpolarised –<br />

18043-4U Spectre 'Dry-<strong>Fly</strong>' Sunglasses<br />

Our Spectre 'Dry-<strong>Fly</strong>' specialist sunglasses feature lightweight polycarbonate frames <strong>and</strong><br />

2mm polycarbonate, yellow, non-polarised lenses for the ultimate fly <strong>and</strong> bite detection.<br />

When dry fly fishing, the solid fly silhouette st<strong>and</strong>s out against the glare of the water, while<br />

the yellow lens tint takes the sting out of the brightness of the<br />

sunlight. If this glare is removed by a polarising lens, the dry fly<br />

melts into the background colour of the water, making it harder<br />

to see. This specialist un-polarised sunglass is perfect for dry-fly<br />

18043-4U Spectre 'Dry <strong>Fly</strong>' fishing, giving you greater clarity to keep your fly in sight at all<br />

Unpolarised – black frame,<br />

times, reducing missed takes. Weight: 50g.<br />

A range of quality l<strong>and</strong>ing nets, with a size to match<br />

most fishing styles <strong>and</strong> at a great price!<br />

providing a rigid, reliable net frame.<br />

The tubular aluminium h<strong>and</strong>les have strong, nylon belt/D-ring clips, plus non-slip<br />

foam grips. The lightweight, tubular aluminium frames support the knotless, rubber<br />

Folding Game, Salmon, <strong>Sea</strong>-Trout & Pike Nets<br />

15171 Folding Game Net with Rubber-Mesh<br />

Our folding game net works on the 'keep it simple' principle – the<br />

folding mechanism is totally fool-proof - nothing can go wrong!<br />

Constructed from lightweight, tubular aluminium, the entire net<br />

weighs just 590g/20.8oz. The large 23”x 19” teardrop frame has a<br />

20” deep, 16mm rubber-coated mesh to prevent hooks tangling<br />

<strong>and</strong> avoid that unpleasant fish smell during storage. The h<strong>and</strong>le has<br />

a foam grip plus a stainless steel clip to attach to a belt or D-ring,<br />

allowing 'out of the way’ storage whilst fishing,<br />

but readily to h<strong>and</strong> when required. Makes<br />

an ideal sea-trout, salmon or reservoir<br />

trout net. Length overall 55”.<br />

L<strong>and</strong>ing Net with<br />

Rubber-Mesh<br />

Two years ago we launched the<br />

smaller Folding Game Net. It soon<br />

became our top-selling l<strong>and</strong>ing net<br />

as anglers worldwide came to appreciate<br />

the simplicity of design. Soon after launch<br />

however, we started receiving requests<br />

from salmon <strong>and</strong> pike anglers for a larger<br />

model – so here it is! Working on exactly<br />

the same principle as its smaller brother<br />

– just scaled up, this model makes the<br />

perfect salmon or large predator net.<br />

The entire net weighs in at just 915g/32oz.<br />

The large 27”x 23” teardrop frame has a<br />

28” deep, 18mm rubber-coated mesh.<br />

Twin foam grips on the h<strong>and</strong>le, plus a<br />

stainless belt clip, the extended h<strong>and</strong>le<br />

provides an overall length of 70” for<br />

greater reach from both bank <strong>and</strong> boat.<br />

Rubber-Mesh L<strong>and</strong>ing Nets<br />

& Magnetic Net Releases<br />

Our top-selling 3-in-1 H<strong>and</strong> Trout Net <strong>and</strong><br />

Boat & Bank L<strong>and</strong>ing Net both use the latest generation of rubber<br />

mesh. The fine, hexagonal mesh has a rubber coating, which<br />

prevents it from absorbing water, so not only does it prevent the<br />

net from smelling of fish, but it completely dries, with just one<br />

shake. The rubber coating also prevents hook barbs catching in<br />

the mesh, which can be so annoying when you net a fish.<br />

15112 3-in-1 H<strong>and</strong> Trout L<strong>and</strong>ing Net<br />

The D-section aluminium frame is ultra lightweight<br />

yet offers amazing strength <strong>and</strong> rigidity. Attached is a<br />

hexagonal Rubber-Mesh knotless net which has a flat<br />

bottom panel for the fish to lie in – ideal for catch &<br />

release as this design minimises scale damage. The net<br />

comes with two telescopic aluminium h<strong>and</strong>les. The shorter<br />

model is only 12” (30cm) when closed, providing an ideal river Rubber-Mesh<br />

knotless net<br />

‘scoop’ net, particularly for competition fishing. It telescopes out to<br />

18” (46cm) for additional reach <strong>and</strong> fits within international competition rules<br />

for overall length. The second telescopic h<strong>and</strong>le extends from a closed length<br />

of 25” (64cm) to a fully extended length of 45” (115cm), providing an ideal river bank<br />

or small stillwater net. Both h<strong>and</strong>les are fitted with high-density foam grips.<br />

Frame size: 17.5” x 20” (45 x 51cm)<br />

We have Rubber Mesh<br />

replacement nets available<br />

separately. Not only will this allow<br />

existing owners of our l<strong>and</strong>ing nets<br />

to upgrade to Rubber-Mesh, but they<br />

will also fit most other makes of net.<br />

15113 Boat <strong>and</strong> Bank L<strong>and</strong>ing Net<br />

A popular design for the boat angler. The teardrop shaped frame has a flat<br />

front section, to slide quickly under the fish to minimise fish lost at the net.<br />

The D-section aluminium is lightweight but remarkably rigid <strong>and</strong> strong,<br />

which together with the die-cast Y-piece, joins the frame to the h<strong>and</strong>le.<br />

have ample room for dry clothing, shoes etc. The best bit is that all this gear is safely concealed <strong>and</strong><br />

the XS doesn’t look like a ‘fishing bag’ to rouse the interest of unscrupulous baggage h<strong>and</strong>lers.<br />

Our XS model incorporates two lockable end compartments, but with flexible, over-sized<br />

nylon liners. This innovative design, allows the entire length of the bag to be used as the top<br />

compartment at the start of the trip, by pushing these flexible liners into the ends of the<br />

bag. Dirty clothing can be stored in these end compartments <strong>and</strong> the liners slowly<br />

extended into the main compartment area, keeping clean <strong>and</strong> dirty gear separated.<br />

Large, square<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Boston Bags<br />

These retro-styled bags make the ideal sports or overnight bag.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> originally manufactured these bags, over 20 years ago as part of their<br />

popular golf range. Our MD has personally been using them for all that time,<br />

with the black model as a sports bag <strong>and</strong> the 2-tone model as an overnight bag.<br />

Having used them regularly for over 20 years, his original bags are still going strong –<br />

testament to the quality of both the materials <strong>and</strong> construction of these unique, premium<br />

quality bags. With the increasing popularity of retro-styled bags, we felt it was time to<br />

re-introduce them. Both models feature a large, zipped main compartment, with<br />

comfortable grip h<strong>and</strong>les. Below this is a clamshell-design, zipped lower<br />

compartment ideal for sports shoes, trainers, wash bag etc.<br />

GB28BA01-BK Boston Overnight/<br />

Sports Bag<br />

Manufactured in a soft, supple, black fauxleather<br />

material, with a natural ‘grain effect’<br />

surface, you would be hard pushed to<br />

tell this from genuine leather – but at a<br />

fraction of the cost <strong>and</strong> weight!<br />

This model makes an ideal sports bag<br />

for all kinds of sports; an equally<br />

good gym bag or a perfect overnight<br />

bag for those extended fishing trips.<br />

The main compartment also has an<br />

internal flap pocket for accessories.<br />

changing mat so you can step out of your waders onto a dry surface, avoiding soggy socks or punctures.<br />

The adjustable shoulder strap has reversed clips, so that it can be used as a Wading Belt. A nylon divider flap<br />

inside the bag separates muddy wading boots from your clothing.<br />

Wet & Dry-Sacks, Bass Bags <strong>and</strong> Accessories<br />

19428-M/L Rubber-Mesh Bass Bags<br />

The popular range follows our well proven design but is made from ‘Rubber Mesh’. This fine,<br />

hexagonal mesh has a rubber coating, so not only does it prevent the net from retaining a fish<br />

smell, but it also completely dries, with just one shake. The strong webbing carrying h<strong>and</strong>les<br />

continue right under the net bag, for additional strength <strong>and</strong> there is a zip top to retain the<br />

fish. Keep the catch fresh during the day’s fishing by pegging it in the water, or using our<br />

innovative Bass Bag Lanyard, when boat fishing.<br />

19428-M Medium 20” x 18” 19428-L Large 24” x 20”<br />

19429/30 Wet-Sacks<br />

We all have the same problem, or what to do with a slimy, dripping<br />

bag of fish at the end of the day! The new, improved designs use a<br />

heavy-duty 500g/m 2 laminated PVC/Nylon/PVC material, which is<br />

100% waterproof. All seams are heat-welded <strong>and</strong> the top zips are<br />

water-resistant, making these new bags as watertight as it’s possible to<br />

be! The smaller size is ideal for a bass-bag full of fish, while the larger<br />

model will swallow boots, waders <strong>and</strong> l<strong>and</strong>ing nets. Just drop your<br />

bass bag of fish, or wet waders, l<strong>and</strong>ing net or clothing into the<br />

Wet Sack, zip it up <strong>and</strong> keep the car clean <strong>and</strong> dry on the way home!<br />

Features strong, reinforced nylon webbing carry h<strong>and</strong>les.<br />

Sizes: 19430 Small 21”x 24” 19429 Large 24”x 31”<br />

Colour: Dark Olive<br />

19435 Bass Bag Lanyard<br />

We all drop the h<strong>and</strong>les of our bass bags over the<br />

rowlock, which means getting up each time you<br />

l<strong>and</strong> a fish, to put them in the bag. With our lanyard<br />

simply pass the end of it under the boat thwart, pass<br />

the clip end through the loop <strong>and</strong> adjust the length<br />

so the hook is just over the boat’s gunwhale. Clip<br />

on your bass bag, which is now right in front of you,<br />

within easy reach.<br />

19427 Dry-Sacks<br />

Using the same tough material as our Wet-Sacks, our Dry-Sacks are<br />

designed for the opposite purpose – rather than keeping the wet in, these<br />

keep the wet out! All three models feature a stiffened, reinforced top<br />

b<strong>and</strong>, which can be rolled down <strong>and</strong> clipped together to provide a 100%<br />

waterproof, airtight bag. Fitted with D-rings each side<br />

onto which are clipped adjustable carry-straps – a<br />

single shoulder strap on the small model & twin straps<br />

on the medium <strong>and</strong> large, so they can be worn as a<br />

rucksack. Colour: Dark Olive<br />

SST Stormsure Adhesive<br />

The original adhesive <strong>and</strong> sealant for<br />

all types of repair in waders, boots <strong>and</strong><br />

just about anything else you can think<br />

of. Over the years we have used this for<br />

just about every type of repair you can<br />

imagine! If you step on your fly line <strong>and</strong><br />

take a ‘nick’ out of it, you can repair it with Stormsure.<br />

Use it for any type of wader or clothing repair including cuts,<br />

punctures or seam leaks. Will also repair punctures on float tubes etc. We even use this to re-stick<br />

felt soles that have come loose <strong>and</strong> found it to be the most effective adhesive for this. In fact, we<br />

have yet to find a sealing or gluing application that can’t be covered by Stormsure!<br />

Available in either 1 x 15g, or 3 x 5g tubes for those smaller jobs. Now supplied with a pair of plastic<br />

gloves for convenience. A useful tip is to store it in the freezer once opened, to extend its life.<br />

once you try it, you don’t know how you ever did<br />

without it! The kits consist of a selection of shapes<br />

<strong>and</strong> sizes of tough, self-adhesive, clear PVC<br />

patches, providing quick <strong>and</strong> easy repair<br />

to waders, jackets, boots etc. Sticks to just<br />

about anything, even when wet! This means<br />

that if you accidentally cut or puncture your<br />

you can make a more permanent repair using<br />

Stormsure adhesive.<br />

representing excellent value for money when you compare the quality <strong>and</strong> features<br />

with other vices on the market. Superbly engineered from high quality steel <strong>and</strong> aircraft<br />

aluminium, the jaws are made from specially hardened, high alloy tool steel.<br />

The <strong>Fly</strong>-Mate Vices feature a rotational facility which, combined with the cranked jaws shaft,<br />

Available in desk Clamp<br />

ball joint on the vice shaft.<br />

This gives movement<br />

in all planes, which<br />

coupled with the<br />

360° rotation facility<br />

allows viewing<br />

of the fly from<br />

all angles during<br />

tying. This facility<br />

can be particularly<br />

useful when tying<br />

very small dry flies or<br />

when using Epoxy resin for<br />

Buzzers or Saltwater flies. The<br />

ball joint allows unlimited<br />

movement, so the Epoxy can<br />

be accurately ‘run’ into the<br />

required shape, while it sets.<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> Selections<br />

A unique <strong>and</strong> exclusive choice of fly selections, largely<br />

designed <strong>and</strong> compiled from the most popular modern day<br />

patterns by our own Simon Kidd, in conjunction with World<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> <strong>Fishing</strong> Champion Iain Barr, plus a couple of traditional<br />

fresh <strong>and</strong> saltwater patterns from Russ Symons. Throughout<br />

the range we have incorporated the very latest materials <strong>and</strong><br />

colour options available today <strong>and</strong> also covered more fly fishing<br />

applications than ever before, including a superb new range of<br />

classic barbless flies. Each selection contains flies chosen exclusively<br />

for a wide variety of waters <strong>and</strong> tested by some of the top anglers<br />

in fly fishing. You can fish these patterns with complete confidence<br />

knowing that they both look good <strong>and</strong> will catch fish!<br />

SF100<br />

SF102<br />

Stillwater Nymphs, Lures <strong>and</strong> Dries<br />

These flies range from the natural style, with optimum presentation in mind,<br />

to the extremely simple <strong>and</strong> wildly successful modern <strong>and</strong> often simple flies of<br />

today. Plenty of choice for large <strong>and</strong> small stillwaters, with some great,<br />

‘must-have’ patterns for the new season.<br />

Who wouldn’t be without a lethal snake pattern today, where permitted,<br />

plus a great additional choice of Electric Damsels <strong>and</strong> the best of weighted,<br />

mobile marabou lures? Whether nymph <strong>and</strong> lure fishing, early season buzzer,<br />

or highly visual dries, there are plenty of magnificent ‘7’s to choose from. For<br />

floating or subsurface there are lots of thoroughly effective patterns <strong>and</strong> all<br />

on only the best of hooks either Barbed or Barbless, as listed. For a choice<br />

of flies never to leave home without,<br />

you need look no further! Most of the<br />

Stillwater patterns are un-weighted but<br />

some have added weight for optimum<br />

movement <strong>and</strong> depth control but all<br />

SF126 Quill Buzzers<br />

possess that extra ‘X Factor’ to bring<br />

success when delivered properly.<br />

New Barbless Flies<br />

7 carded selections of the best new barbless patterns on the market today. Perfect for quick <strong>and</strong> easy release but tied on great hooks,<br />

that won’t let you down <strong>and</strong> will quickly become favourites for sure. Ideal for competitions <strong>and</strong> proper, efficient catch <strong>and</strong> release.<br />

<strong>Sea</strong> Trout, Salmon <strong>and</strong> Surf<br />

These selections offer a range of popular designs in a choice of effective<br />

patterns, in a mix of drab <strong>and</strong> striking effective colours to stimulate the wiliest<br />

of big, wild fish. The salmon singles are tied on a selection of traditional black<br />

<strong>and</strong> modern nickel silver hooks. The sea trout patterns need no introduction<br />

being simple, popular traditional patterns with a card containing stinger <strong>and</strong><br />

wake flies, which, when testing, accounted for some great fishing <strong>and</strong> all have<br />

a unique habit of going savagely ‘bump’ in the night!<br />

Saltwater / Predator<br />

Our Saltwater/Predator selections offer the predator <strong>and</strong><br />

destination fisher a great range of creations to tempt any<br />

predatory fish from jacks <strong>and</strong> snappers to hard fighting bass, pollack<br />

<strong>and</strong> pike; some of the hardest, most aggressive fighting fish there are.<br />

Be ready to ‘hang-on’ though as our predator patterns, tied from modern<br />

synthetics for light casting, might just be about to catch a toothy critter<br />

more than you bargained for!<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> ‘Ogden’s’ <strong>Fly</strong> Floatant <strong>and</strong><br />

Tippet & <strong>Fly</strong> Sinkant<br />

For <strong>2023</strong>, we are introducing what have been widely<br />

described as the 'best fly floatant & sinkant on the<br />

market!' Manufactured for us by the Ogden family in<br />

Lancashire, these two new products are truly exceptional.<br />

The Dry <strong>Fly</strong> Floatant is an inert, silicone based, nontoxic,<br />

hydrophobic formulation, with a high viscosity for<br />

easy application. A single application prevents hackles<br />

getting waterlogged <strong>and</strong> keeps dries floating high, with low surface slick.<br />

The ingredients for the new Sinkant are derived from natural plant-based<br />

resources. When applied to sub-surface flies <strong>and</strong> tippets it will help them cut<br />

though the surface tension in difficult, flat calm conditions.<br />

14755/6 Slimline Silicone-foam <strong>Fly</strong> Boxes<br />

Slimline design fly boxes, made from tough ABS plastic, with a clear lid for<br />

quick <strong>and</strong> easy fly identification. Fitted with the latest high-density silicone<br />

foam, which gives a constant, firm grip, with no “stretching” over time <strong>and</strong> will<br />

not damage with repeated hook insertion <strong>and</strong> removal. The unique, staggered<br />

foam slits hold all dry flies <strong>and</strong> nymphs firmly <strong>and</strong> the slim profile is ideal to slip<br />

into a shirt or vest pocket when ‘fishing light’.<br />

Available in two sizes.<br />

tough, unbreakable ABS plastic, like the other models in the range, with a crystal clear<br />

polycarbonate lid for easy fly identification. Available in two versions. The nymph <strong>and</strong> buzzer<br />

box is fitted with high density Silicone foam, offering a firm grip on any size fly <strong>and</strong> with<br />

sufficient room to hold up to 192 flies. For hackled dry <strong>and</strong> wet flies, we have a traditional<br />

14764 Slimline Slit-foam<br />

Competition <strong>Fly</strong> Box<br />

14750 Slimline <strong>Fly</strong> Box<br />

Our ultra-slim profile fly boxes take up the minimum of space <strong>and</strong> slip easily into any shirt<br />

or vest pocket, making them ideal for the roving bank or river angler. Made from a tough,<br />

flexible, crack-proof ABS for durability, which is also transparent on the lid for quick, easy fly<br />

selection. The high density, pre-slit ethafoam liners hold flies firmly <strong>and</strong> neatly in position<br />

<strong>and</strong> although these are not a new idea, what makes <strong>Snowbee</strong>’s boxes different, is the ‘cutouts’<br />

between the rows, allowing even large, hackled dry flies to be stored without crushing<br />

the hackles. The ethafoam liners are mounted on white coloured back-cards so flies are<br />

more visible for easier fly selection. Each box has 9 rows of hook-slots holding up to an<br />

impressive 234 flies securely. Size: 184mm x 98mm x 13mm Weight: Just 80g/2.9oz<br />

down each side, to securely hold<br />

wound on leaders, ready for use.<br />

Fitted with a simple clip at the top,<br />

to attach to a vest pocket flap, but<br />

also comes with a plastic covered<br />

wire cord, to attach to a D-Ring.<br />

XS-Plus Gold Leader <strong>and</strong> Tippet Material<br />

A breed of tippet materials, incorporating the very latest in material<br />

<strong>and</strong> extrusion technologies, to create lines as good as anything on<br />

the market… <strong>and</strong> better than most!<br />

XS-Plus Gold Super-Fluorocarbon<br />

As strong <strong>and</strong> smooth as the best nylon Co-Polymers, our 'Gold St<strong>and</strong>ard' Super-Fluorocarbon represents the<br />

latest development in fluorocarbon line technology. Utilising the latest thinking in material technology, the PVDF<br />

copolymer is mainly used in critical applications requiring a high degree of purity <strong>and</strong> excellent mechanical<br />

properties. Combined with a new ‘state-of-the-art’ extrusion process, our new XS-Plus Gold can reach the tenacity<br />

<strong>and</strong> strength of a high quality nylon copolymer, yet offers all the advantages of a 100% fluorocarbon line.<br />

Features<br />

l 100% premium quality Japanese fluorocarbon<br />

l Low refractive index provides total clarity<br />

in water for minimal visibility in all light <strong>and</strong><br />

water conditions l Super-high knot strength<br />

to diameter ratio l Silky smooth finish allows<br />

wetted knots to pull up smoothly with minimal<br />

knot-burn l Excellent abrasion resistance <strong>and</strong><br />

low memory l Super strong formula makes<br />

this line very supple for superior presentation<br />

l Low stretch <strong>and</strong> water absorption for the<br />

ultimate in consistent performance.<br />

XS-Plus Gold Super-Copolymer<br />

Our XS-Plus Gold Super Copolymer is the number one choice<br />

for the most dem<strong>and</strong>ing angler. This latest development in line<br />

technology is one of the most high-tech products on the market today,<br />

thanks to a new ‘state-of-the-art’ extrusion process coupled with a very<br />

expensive raw material – no expense has been spared to create the ultimate<br />

tippet line. XS-Plus Gold, provides maximum strength, without sacrificing the<br />

other features dem<strong>and</strong>ed by today’s discerning fly fisherman.<br />

Features<br />

l High knot strength l Controlled stretch l High <strong>and</strong> consistent tensile<br />

strength in water l Excellent impact strength to help avoid those smash<br />

takes l Super smooth finish l Low memory provides high resistance to<br />

kinking l Excellent abrasion resistance for long term durability.<br />

What is amazing about this line, notwithst<strong>and</strong>ing its super-high knot strength,<br />

is its limited stretch factor of 22–24% elongation which dramatically improves<br />

bite detection, whilst allowing sufficient stretch to avoid shaking fish off when<br />

using barbless hooks. For convenience, both our XS-Plus Gold lines come on<br />

smaller spools. These super-narrow, 50m spools will join together if required<br />

<strong>and</strong> at just 65mm diameter, fit easily into any fly vest pocket or tippet spool<br />

holder. Each line weight is colour-coded with an elasticated retainer, which<br />

not only gives you quick <strong>and</strong> easy line identification, but also holds the line in<br />

place <strong>and</strong> stops that annoying un-spooling!<br />

The simple way to attach leaders to fly-lines.<br />

Pack contains 3 finished loops with silicone<br />

tubing, ready to attach direct to your fly-line.<br />

Our design features un-glued splices,<br />

which makes them softer <strong>and</strong> more pliable,<br />

avoiding those stiff glued sections, which<br />

cause hinge-points. Simply add as much or as<br />

little glue as you wish, to secure the loop.<br />

Poly-Coated Leaders<br />

Our range of Poly-Coated Leaders represents three years of development work to ensure we got it just right. Available in the required modern lengths of 5ft<br />

<strong>and</strong> 10ft in trout <strong>and</strong> salmon models. The trout models are extruded onto 0.40mm (15lb BS) clear monofilament core, while the salmon models use 0.55mm<br />

(30lb BS). Both have neat welded loops on the butt end to allow simple ‘loop to loop’ connection to your fly line, with an 8” un-coated monofilament tip, with<br />

a Perfection Loop tied in the end, which can be cut off if not required.<br />

The thermoplastic polymer coating has a precision taper <strong>and</strong> a silkysmooth<br />

finish, to ensure a controlled turnover <strong>and</strong> presentation. The five<br />

Poly-Coated Leaders – Trout: 0.40mm core – rated at 15lb<br />

Smoker Cooker<br />

Smoking has been a traditional way of preserving food, stretching back thous<strong>and</strong>s<br />

of years, where our ancestors discovered that hanging meats <strong>and</strong> fish up close to<br />

a fire, extended the time they remained fresh. Over the centuries, the smoking<br />

technique has been refined <strong>and</strong> we now have two basic smoking methods; Cold<br />

Smoking, as used for salmon, where the food is only smoked but not cooked; <strong>and</strong><br />

Hot Smoking where the cooking <strong>and</strong> smoking process take place together.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> has been making its famous Smoker Cooker for over 30 years <strong>and</strong> in all<br />

that time, little has changed in this superb design, as we got it just right, from the<br />

start! Manufactured from corrosion-resistant grade 430 stainless steel to provide many<br />

years of smoking service. The 18/0 material, has a high nickel content, making it hard,<br />

tough <strong>and</strong> stain-resistant. The base uses a black, electroforming process, for a tough,<br />

corrosion-resistant finish. Many have attempted to copy our original design but beware<br />

of cheaper imitations, which use inferior grade materials <strong>and</strong> are not truly ‘stainless’.<br />

19011 Smoker Cooker<br />

Generously sized, the Smoker Cooker is constructed in stainless steel for easy cleaning<br />

<strong>and</strong> long life. It will take four or five small trout, or two large fish, headed <strong>and</strong> tailed.<br />

Comes with st<strong>and</strong>, two fuel pans<br />

with heat adjustment, cooking<br />

pan, lid with adjustable smoke<br />

vent, drip tray <strong>and</strong> grill. Packs<br />

away neatly for convenient<br />

storage. Quick <strong>and</strong> efficient hot<br />

smoking of fish, meats, poultry<br />

etc, cooks AND smokes in one<br />

process, so smoked fish is ready<br />

in as little as 15 minutes.<br />

Uses methylated spirit fuel<br />

(not supplied).<br />

Size: 16½”x 10½”x 4½”<br />

Wood dusts for smoking<br />

Top quality, kiln dried English wood dusts – 100% natural <strong>and</strong> sustainably<br />

sourced, ensuring you get the best smoke flavour, every time. Suitable for<br />

both Hot <strong>and</strong> Cold Smokers. Packed in re-sealable 250g bags – sufficient<br />

for 4 or 5 full smokings. The smoker dust is finer than chippings <strong>and</strong><br />

burns slowly giving even more flavour. Try these on the barbecue to add<br />

a rich smokey flavour to all outdoor cooking. See our website at:<br />

www.snowbee.co.uk/fly-fishing/accessories-float-tubing/#smoker for<br />

tips on how to make your Smoking <strong>and</strong> BBQ experience more enjoyable.<br />

19010-D English Oak Smoker Dust<br />

The original smoker dust has always been the mainstay of home <strong>and</strong><br />

commercial smoking, of almost all foods, from meats to fish. Can be<br />

mixed with other wood dusts to vary the flavours, <strong>and</strong> works particularly<br />

well with apple to add flavour to meat products, such as sausages etc.<br />

19010-D-AL Alder Smoker Dust<br />

A particular favourite in the Pacific Northwest of America, where it is widely used<br />

for smoking salmon. This mild wood is the smoking dust of choice when a delicate,<br />

smoky flavour is required, hence perfect for salmon, sea-trout <strong>and</strong> most fish.<br />

19010-D-AP Apple Smoker Dust<br />

This fruitwood has a more complex, sweeter flavour than alder, but is still quite<br />

mild. Excellent for game, fish <strong>and</strong> poultry. Apple wood also works well when<br />

soaked in water then sprinkled over BBQ coals when grilling chicken or steaks.<br />

19010-D-HK Hickory Smoker Dust<br />

Hickory is a classic hardwood that provides a great depth of spicy flavour, without being<br />

harsh. A popular choice on the BBQ <strong>and</strong> perfect when using BBQ sauce on pork ribs, etc.<br />

19010-D-WH Whisky Oak Smoker Dust<br />

A new ‘twist’ on the traditional oak smoke dust - our popular Oak Smoker Dust is<br />

infused with scotch whisky! This combination provides the timeless classic aroma of<br />

whisky, with the wonderful flavour of English oak. The perfect choice for smoking all<br />

meats, plus cheese <strong>and</strong> vegetables.<br />

Deep Blue 2 Boat Rods<br />

Since their introduction over 14 years ago, the Deep Blue Boat Rods have built a<br />

‘cult following’, amongst discerning boat anglers, looking for the best money can<br />

buy. Make no mistake, the Deep Blue range was developed over a period of two<br />

years testing to meet the dem<strong>and</strong>s of UK boat anglers looking for perfection.<br />

Over the years, they have been steadily upgraded, but fans of the original<br />

Deep Blue range need not worry, as the latest Deep Blue 2 models, have an<br />

even lighter, crisper action than their predecessors!<br />

All Deep Blue 2 Rods come in a quality,<br />

heavy duty cotton drill rod bag.<br />

Finished in the same lustrous deep blue, with subtle cross-whippings <strong>and</strong><br />

decals <strong>and</strong> using lightweight graphite reel seats <strong>and</strong> chrome-plated stainless<br />

steel rings to prevent corrosion. Accurately rated to IGFA line classes <strong>and</strong><br />

at 7ft 7ins they offer the ideal length for the serious boat angler<br />

<strong>and</strong> include a model to suit all fishing situations.<br />

10201 Deep Blue 2 8lb (4kg) class<br />

An ultra-sensitive inshore rod, ideal for bass, plaice, brill etc.<br />

Teamed up with the smallest multiplier reel, this is undoubtedly<br />

the best lightweight outfit available.<br />

10209 Deep Blue 2 8lb (4kg) class 'S-Flex'<br />

Based on the st<strong>and</strong>ard 8lb Class model, but with an ultra-soft<br />

Korean S-Glass tip section, for supreme sensitivity. The perfect<br />

rod for plaice or bream fishing, or livebait fishing for bass <strong>and</strong><br />

other species.<br />

10202 Deep Blue 2 12lb (6kg) class<br />

The 12lb is the perfect choice for the inshore angler fishing reefs<br />

<strong>and</strong> inshore drop-offs, but with enough grunt for reef pollack etc.<br />

10205 Deep Blue 2 12lb (6kg) class S-Flex<br />

Based on the st<strong>and</strong>ard 12lb Class model, but with the same<br />

ultra-sensitive tip as the 8lb 'S-Class' model. Ideal for heavier bait<br />

fishing for turbot or black bream <strong>and</strong> ideal for livebait fishing.<br />

10203 Deep Blue 2 20lb (10kg) class<br />

Without doubt the best ‘all-rounder’ in the range. The 20lb Deep Blue 2<br />

offers the seasoned boat angler the best of both worlds. Sensitive<br />

enough to fish inshore for bass etc, but with enough reserves of power<br />

to tame the hardest fighting wreck pollack.<br />

10204 Deep Blue 2 30lb (15kg) class<br />

The 30lb model is for the serious boat angler who predominantly<br />

fishes wrecks. It is a very powerful rod <strong>and</strong> the only rod we use for our<br />

blue shark trips. More than enough power to haul monster conger <strong>and</strong><br />

ling out of deep-water wrecks.<br />

Deep Blue Jigging Rods<br />

Following on from the Japanese ‘Speed Jigging’ craze, the new method of<br />

‘Slow Jigging’ is proving far more popular <strong>and</strong> successful for our UK species.<br />

New for<br />

<strong>2023</strong><br />

Similar in basic principle, but rather than working the jig fast, in a cyclical<br />

‘crank & jig’ motion, Slow Jigging involves working the jigs close to the<br />

bottom in a more relaxed fashion, allowing the lighter, wider jigs to rise<br />

<strong>and</strong> ‘flutter’ back down, which most predatory fish find irresistible.<br />

As one the pioneers of Speed Jigging in the UK, we have been using this<br />

‘Slow Jigging’ technique on our own test boat Deep Blue 3 for the past<br />

10 years <strong>and</strong> it has proved to be a highly effective method for cod <strong>and</strong><br />

other bottom dwelling species.<br />

The new Deep Blue Jigging Rods are ultra-lightweight for all day fishing<br />

comfort but use high modulus carbon for a fast, powerful action, to<br />

impart maximum movement to the jigs. The graphite reel seat <strong>and</strong><br />

low-rider style guides are equally at home using either a conventional<br />

multiplier reel or turn the rod up the other way <strong>and</strong> team it up with one<br />

of the new generation fixed spool Jigging reels.<br />

At 6ft 6ins they are the ideal length for Jigging – long enough to ‘work’<br />

the jig effectively, but short enough to apply pressure to set the hook,<br />

when the inevitable ‘smash takes’ occur.<br />

Our new range includes 3 models; an ultra-lightweight jigging rod, rated for<br />

lines of 8 – 15lbs <strong>and</strong> jigs of 30-100g, a medium weight rod, rated for lines<br />

of 15-25lbs <strong>and</strong> jigs of 70-120g <strong>and</strong> a heavyweight model, rated for lines of<br />

20-35lbs <strong>and</strong> jigs of 130-200g. These three models cover all requirements<br />

from ultra-lightweight, shallow water reef fishing, through jigging for Bass<br />

on inshore wrecks, when they shoal-up in the autumn, to wreck fishing, in<br />

deeper water, where heavier jigs are needed, to get down fast. This concise<br />

range offers a model suitable for both shallow water slow jigging <strong>and</strong> deep<br />

water speed jigging.<br />

Deep Blue – take on the best the oceans have to<br />

offer… <strong>and</strong> win!<br />

The 3-pce blanks, break down to a<br />

convenient 30” for travelling <strong>and</strong> are<br />

finished in our signature, lustrous Deep<br />

Blue colour, with subtle self-colour<br />

whippings <strong>and</strong> silver trim.<br />

The high density foam grips offer all<br />

day comfort <strong>and</strong> warmth, for winter fishing. The rods come in a cotton drill<br />

rod bag. Lightweight, stainless steel guides, with a chrome finish, to make<br />

them salt-water resistant. All models come complete with a quality cotton<br />

drill rod bag.<br />

There is certainly more to speed jigging than meets the eye; do it wrong<br />

<strong>and</strong> you may as well use conventional methods, but do it right <strong>and</strong> it can,<br />

without doubt, be the most deadly, effective <strong>and</strong> exciting fishing method,<br />

for a vast array of species – pollack, cod, ling, whiting <strong>and</strong> even bass!<br />

Aboard our own test vessel, Deep Blue 3 , for the past 10 years we have<br />

fished jigs almost to the exclusion of every other fishing method <strong>and</strong><br />

proved time <strong>and</strong> time again, that it will out-fish most other methods,<br />

including long flowing traces with artificial S<strong>and</strong>eels or<br />

Shads. For full details on this exciting fishing method,<br />

Deep Blue Spinning Rods<br />

The perfect combination of the latest thinking in rod design coupled with <strong>Snowbee</strong> technology to<br />

bring you a new range of Lure spinning rods at the cutting edge of modern lure fishing design.<br />

With a strong pedigree from our previous Raptor <strong>and</strong> Kuroshio models, we have combined the best of both <strong>and</strong> the result is the<br />

stunning new range of Deep Blue Spinning Rods. This new high-tech range offers superb performance across a range of rods for<br />

all styles of lure fishing. There is an ultra-lightweight LRF model, designed for lures in the 2-15g range, designed for the ultimate<br />

flexibility <strong>and</strong> sensitivity when fishing light. Ideal for micro soft lure fishing, but with enough backbone when a powerful wrasse<br />

snatches your lure <strong>and</strong> heads for the kelp!<br />

The other four models in the range come in the most popular 8ft & 9ft lengths <strong>and</strong> in<br />

both 10-30g <strong>and</strong> 20-50g lure weights, to offer a size <strong>and</strong> weight for all styles of lure<br />

Stinger<br />

Skad Lures<br />

In the 10 years since their launch Stinger Skads have revolutionised<br />

lure fishing with regular reports of them out fishing all previous market<br />

leaders! Both the S<strong>and</strong>eel <strong>and</strong> Shad lure patterns have their limitations<br />

depending on what the fish are feeding on, so the Skad lure is a hybrid of<br />

the two – cunningly imitating both, so effective when fish are feeding on<br />

either s<strong>and</strong>eel, or small baitfish, such as pout, mackerel or herring.<br />

The high grade, natural scent PVC material provides a highly durable<br />

lure that will not tear apart the first time a fish hits it. The highly elastic<br />

tail is able to 'stretch' when fish are 'biting shy', rather than snap-off<br />

as has been the case with some lures. This new material is also crystal<br />

clear, unlike many of our competitors, whose lures use an opaque material.<br />

The advantage of this clarity is a clear light reflection off the outer surface,<br />

coupled with an enticing holographic shimmer, off the internal lead-weight<br />

foil wrap – a combination which any predatory fish finds irresistible.<br />

The combination of moulded tail 'slots', plus an oversized 'paddle' tail,<br />

not only creates an exaggerated tail action, even at very low speeds,<br />

but also sets up additional undersea noise – a proven fish attractor.<br />

Over-size, ultra-sharp hooks ensure fish stay hooked, plus large,<br />

holographic eyes are a known 'trigger point' for any predatory fish.<br />

The Skad can be fished on a traditional long flowing trace <strong>and</strong> boom<br />

over reef or wrecks for species such as pollack, cod <strong>and</strong> ling, or used<br />

as a casting lure for inshore species such as bass, pollack, mackerel.<br />

Vapour-Tec® - How it all works<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Vapour-Tec® is a true outdoor fabric. The key to<br />

its enhanced performance <strong>and</strong> unmatched comfort is in the<br />

advanced TPU microporous laminate. TPU is a Hydrophilic<br />

membrane, the structure of which allows moisture to be<br />

wicked away from the body <strong>and</strong> transferred through the fabric<br />

to the outside in the evaporated state. The micro-pores in<br />

the TPU laminate are large enough to allow moisture vapour<br />

(perspiration) out, but far too small to allow water molecules in,<br />

making the fabric totally waterproof. This breathable membrane<br />

is laminated to a tough outer shell, combining softness with<br />

strength <strong>and</strong> wind-resistance.<br />

As you warm up inside the garment, the air inside becomes hot <strong>and</strong> humid, relative to that outside. This<br />

raises the vapour pressure inside which forces moisture, in the form of perspiration <strong>and</strong> condensation,<br />

through the PU Breathable membrane, leaving you cool <strong>and</strong> dry all day long.<br />

Vapour-Tec® - allows moisture to be wicked away from the body<br />

quickly <strong>and</strong> effectively, to leave you cool, dry <strong>and</strong> comfortable.<br />

Breathable Waders<br />

Before you buy, the MOST important factor to consider is<br />

the material specification. Not all breathable materials are<br />

the same. The performance of breathable materials, is<br />

measured in two ways.<br />

1. Breathability – measured in grams of moisture<br />

which can pass through the material per m 2 per 24hrs.<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Breathable Wader material can transfer up<br />

to an impressive 4,000g/m 2 /24hrs, on all models.<br />

2. Waterproofness – measured as the hydrostatic<br />

water pressure the material can withst<strong>and</strong> – given as<br />

the ‘head’ of water, in mm. Many manufacturers use<br />

inferior materials, with a hydrostatic pressure rating<br />

of less than 5,000mm. <strong>Snowbee</strong> use only the best<br />

materials available, able to withst<strong>and</strong> a hydrostatic<br />

pressure of up to 15,000mm.<br />

Breathable Jackets & Trousers<br />

The same applies to our Jackets & Trousers. Most<br />

manufacturers use material with a hydrostatic<br />

pressure rating of only 3,000mm. Our <strong>Prestige</strong> 2<br />

Breathable clothing range uses a breathable material<br />

with an impressive hydrostatic pressure rating of<br />

8,000mm <strong>and</strong> a breathability of 4,000 g/m 2 /24 hrs.<br />

Lifetime Guarantee<br />

Wader sole choice<br />

We produce a range of soles, each<br />

designed for a specific purpose:<br />

l The Cleated sole, is most suitable for<br />

general use on s<strong>and</strong>, mud, shingle etc.<br />

l The Combi-Sole incorporates a<br />

felt-sole <strong>and</strong> deep cleated heel.<br />

l This is unique <strong>and</strong> the heavy-duty<br />

Studded full Felt-Sole<br />

heel digs in on wet grass or muddy<br />

banks, whilst the felt-sole gives unsurpassed grip on rocks etc in the fastest of<br />

rivers. Trials have shown that there is no loss of grip in the river by not having<br />

a felt-heel, if unsure of your footing, you naturally transfer the<br />

weight to the balls of your feet – where you need <strong>and</strong> find the grip!<br />

l Introduced in 2018 was our studded full Felt-Sole on the <strong>Prestige</strong> STX<br />

Breathable <strong>and</strong> the Classic Neoprene waders. 16 pairs of hardened alloy studs,<br />

coupled with felt-soles, provide sure grip on any slippery surface.<br />

l For additional grip our Screw-in Studs may be added to the heels<br />

of Felt-Sole or Cleated sole waders.<br />

Wader care<br />

All <strong>Snowbee</strong> waders are made from synthetic<br />

materials, which are not susceptible to cracking<br />

or perishing, like the old rubber waders were. The<br />

sun will however degrade synthetic materials, so it<br />

is recommended that waders are stored out of direct<br />

sunlight. Creasing, whilst unsightly, does not adversely<br />

affect the performance of waders <strong>and</strong> the best way<br />

of avoiding this is to hang the waders upside down in a<br />

<strong>Snowbee</strong> Wader Rack – see page 97. After use in saltwater or brackish<br />

water, the waders should always be washed down with fresh water, <strong>and</strong><br />

felt soles should always be hosed off well with fresh water after every<br />

fishing trip, to remove mud deposits. Without this, the soles will become<br />

hard, wear faster, be less effective <strong>and</strong> can cause the soles to become<br />

rigid <strong>and</strong> peel off.<br />

<strong>Fly</strong> rod breakages <strong>and</strong> rod care<br />

Whilst all <strong>Snowbee</strong> <strong>Fly</strong> Rods are covered by our Original Purchaser<br />

Lifetime Guarantee, carbon fibre is brittle <strong>and</strong> rod breakages can<br />

occasionally occur resulting in additional cost <strong>and</strong> inconvenience<br />

for the owner. Contrary to popular belief however, modern carbon<br />

fibre rods rarely break as a result of poor manufacture during<br />

the natural flexing forces of fly casting <strong>and</strong> playing fish. Rods are<br />

generally ‘broken’ for one reason or another <strong>and</strong> often whilst casting<br />

or playing a fish, when the rod can become ‘over-flexed’ or hit with<br />

a fly for example, which can cause microscopic fractures, leading<br />

to breakages, then or shortly after. Car doors <strong>and</strong> feet are also a<br />

common factor, so to avoid rod breakage we therefore offer the<br />

following advice:<br />

Never<br />

l Lift fish out of the water with the rod – always use a net<br />

l Use a fly line more than one line weight above the rod’s rating<br />

l Jerk the rod or use the tip to pull flies free from rocks or trees<br />

l Support the weight of the rod by the tip section<br />

l Pull line through the rod tip, while holding the rod h<strong>and</strong>le<br />

l Walk with the rod tip facing forward<br />

l Lean a rod against an open car door or boot – it is sure to fall or<br />

someone close the door on it!<br />

l Place a rod on the ground – either you or someone else is sure to<br />

st<strong>and</strong> on it<br />

Always<br />

l When netting a fish, exercise extreme care not to over-compress<br />

the tip of the rod – a common cause of rod breakages.<br />

l When assembling the rod take extra care when threading fly line<br />

or leader through the rings.<br />

l Transport <strong>and</strong> store the rod in a safe place <strong>and</strong> in its rod tube.<br />

l Try to avoid rod impact damage: especially when using<br />

goldheads or any weighted flies that can be travelling in excess of<br />

80mph. Hitting the rod blank will easily cause stress fractures<br />

l Check that the sections are properly aligned <strong>and</strong> securely<br />

pressed together at all times. Applying a little c<strong>and</strong>le wax to new<br />

joints can help prevent them coming apart during casting<br />

Double h<strong>and</strong>ed ‘Spey’ rods<br />

Spey-casting involves a circular casting motion that can cause rod<br />

joints to work loose. We strongly recommend taping the joints prior<br />

to use therefore, to help prevent this.<br />

Original Purchaser Lifetime Guarantee<br />

For peace of mind, <strong>Snowbee</strong> f ly rods come with an<br />

Original Purchaser Lifetime Guarantee.<br />

This guarantee is limited to the Original Purchaser<br />

<strong>and</strong> is not transferable to future owners. In order<br />

to implement this guarantee, details of the<br />

purchase <strong>and</strong> the purchaser must be registered<br />

with <strong>Snowbee</strong> (UK) Limited, or appointed agent<br />

in the country of purchase, within 30 days of<br />

purchase. Failure to register your purchase will<br />

invalidate the guarantee<br />

If, during the lifetime of the original purchaser,<br />

the rod should break or fail, for whatever<br />

reason, simply return the rod, together with<br />

the appropriate h<strong>and</strong>ling <strong>and</strong> postage fee*<br />

plus your original invoice, sales receipt, or<br />

proof of purchase to <strong>Snowbee</strong> (UK) Ltd, or their<br />

appointed agent outside the UK. If this is within<br />

the first 12 months from the date of purchase<br />

<strong>and</strong> only if, in the opinion of <strong>Snowbee</strong> (UK) Ltd,<br />

or their appointed agent, the failure is due to a<br />

manufacturing fault or material defect, our normal<br />

manufacturer’s 1 year guarantee will apply <strong>and</strong><br />

the rod or section, would normally be replaced<br />

free of charge, with the relevant h<strong>and</strong>ling/postage<br />

fee then returned.<br />

Should the rod in question be discontinued,<br />

it will normally be replaced with a new model<br />

up to a similar value, or there is the option to<br />

‘trade up’ to a rod of a higher value, by paying<br />

the h<strong>and</strong>ling/ postage fee, plus the difference<br />

in value between the two models. Please note<br />

however, that in the case of discontinued models,<br />

if purchased at a discount, in a clearance sale for<br />

example, the maximum value covered by this<br />

guarantee is the price paid <strong>and</strong> not the original<br />

RRP.<br />

In all cases, if the customer is unable to<br />

provide an acceptable proof of purchase,<br />

showing the price paid for the rod, then the<br />

maximum warranty value applicable, will be our<br />

last sale price for that particular model.<br />

* The h<strong>and</strong>ling <strong>and</strong> return postage fee for<br />

different rod models is: £20 for all Classic fly rods,<br />

£35 for Classic Double-h<strong>and</strong>ed, Spectre RMX,<br />

Spectre Double-h<strong>and</strong>ed <strong>and</strong> Diamond 2 fly rods,<br />

£45 for <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Single H<strong>and</strong>ed fly Rods <strong>and</strong><br />

£60 for <strong>Prestige</strong> G-XS Double-h<strong>and</strong>ed fly rods.<br />

This applies to the UK only.<br />

For overseas customers please contact the<br />

appointed <strong>Snowbee</strong> agent or contact <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

UK Ltd direct for a postage quote. This guarantee<br />

is in addition to your statutory rights. <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

(UK) Ltd, reserves the right to amend the<br />

h<strong>and</strong>ling/postage fee in line with inflation.<br />

Returns Policy<br />

All <strong>Snowbee</strong> products are covered by our 12 month warranty. During this period, if any<br />

manufacturing or material fault develops, the item will be replaced, or repaired (at our<br />

discretion) without question.<br />

Please note however, that particularly in the case of waders <strong>and</strong> footwear, this warranty<br />

does not cover accidental damage, punctures, fair wear <strong>and</strong> tear or seam damage<br />

caused by incorrect choice of size. The <strong>Snowbee</strong> Warranty does not include the<br />

commercial use of any item.<br />

In the unlikely event that a problem develops on a <strong>Snowbee</strong> product, you should<br />

first contact the retailer who supplied the goods. Should it be necessary to return the<br />

goods to us for inspection, a receipt or proof of purchase must be enclosed. We regret<br />

that we are unable to deal with any returns without such proof of purchase.<br />

Please note that under EU Health <strong>and</strong> Safety regulations, our staff are not permitted to<br />

h<strong>and</strong>le dirty or wet items of clothing or footwear.<br />

To avoid disappointment, delays <strong>and</strong> additional costs, please ensure that any items<br />

returned are in a clean, dry condition.<br />

Prolong the life of your <strong>Snowbee</strong><br />

waders <strong>and</strong> clothing<br />

l Avoid contamination by grease, or any oil based fluids.<br />

These will severely reduce the integrity of the fabric. In the<br />

event of contamination rinse the garment immediately in<br />

lukewarm soapy water <strong>and</strong> rinse thoroughly.<br />

l Avoid sharp objects which may cause punctures to the<br />

material.<br />

l Waders should be rinsed with fresh water after use,<br />

paying particular attention to felt soles on boots.<br />

l Hang waders by the boots, in a <strong>Snowbee</strong> Wader-Rack<br />

to allow drying out.<br />

If you find it necessary to wash breathable clothing then<br />

a gentle non-biological detergent should be used. The<br />

garment may be re-proofed by using our new DWR<br />

reproofing product – Stormsure Stormproof DWR Spray –<br />

see page 81 for details.<br />

Age Restricted Product<br />

Customers are reminded that legislation prohibits the sale or hire of specific products<br />

to persons under certain ages <strong>and</strong> proof of age must always be ascertained. This<br />

includes our Filleting Knives on page 94, which could be classified as 'offensive<br />

weapons', which we are only permitted to supply by mail-order with a credit card<br />

payment in the name of the purchaser, to prove they are over 18. This does not<br />

preclude the sale of solvents for the purpose of their normal intended use.<br />
