The wide gape hook is one of the most popular patterns in use today. Their strong, versatile design makes them perfect for use with all manner of rig types including bottom bait rigs, pop-up rigs, zig rigs and surface rigs.

These ready-tied chod rigs are not just aimed at beginners and intermediate anglers. Tied to a very high standard, using quality components, they would be equally at home in the tackle box of the most discerning angler.
This distinctive new jacket from Wofte certainly looks the part with its unusual five-colour Flecktarn pattern.

It has taken an awful long time for these items to come to fruition. It’s an idea that has been toing and froing for a while now, but the Nash Team is at last 100% happy with its latest creation.
The modest dimensions of this new backpack make it ideal for your everyday needs. It is ideal for day session work or carrying your personal belongings on and off the bank.
If you’re looking to create sure, neat and tidy rigs with ease then the use of dedicated crimps can be a real benefit.
