During the colder winter months, some fishermen may spend less time on the water, but that doesn’t mean they stop thinking about fishing. In fact, the warm weather will be here before you know it, so now is the time to start stocking up on the latest fishing gear for 2013. Here are some hot new items that you or the angler in your life might want when the spring thaw arrives.
For the fly-fisherman looking for the top-of-the-line rod, Sage has introduced the ONE Elite. The ONE Elite features titanium reel seat and stripper guides. This hand-made rod uses high-grade cork on the handle and ceramic line guide inserts. With a retail price of $1,295, the ONE Elite is not for everyone. But if you’re casting about for that perfect gift, it’s one of the best fly rods available.
Redington’s Rise reel features a fully machined aluminum construction for reliable performance in any saltwater or freshwater fishing situation.
Redington also has a new line of fishing apparel for men and women that will have anglers looking good in all conditions. The stylish clothing also looks good when you’re not on the water.
Fishpond’s Westwater Collection is a new series of boat bags and packs in various sizes for safely carrying your gear on the water. These bags use welded construction for durability in tough conditions.
The modern fly rod is a delicate piece of equipment, especially susceptible to damage when traveling. For this reason, a good travel rod tube is a wise investment. Sage recently introduced a newly designed travel rod tube that uses convex and concave curves to increase its strength and keep the tube from rolling around. It also has rubberized end caps and seals tightly to protect the rod from water, dirt and dust.
