The year’s best packs, fly boxes, tying materials and apparel
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.
