With both exciting innovations and product reboots, anglers will have plenty to choose from when they head to the fly shop this year. Here’s my favourite new tackle.
This well-designed jacket is made from three-layer Gore-Tex C-Knit fabric, which is lighter and 15 per cent more breathable than regular Gore-Tex. An improved inside glide coating prevents sticking, making the Vapor Elite easy to put on, even over a fleece jacket. Other features include a three-way adjustable storm hood, dual-drawstring bottom hem and mesh-lined hand-warmer pockets.
