New - Lamson Vanquish

The beautiful all-new Vanquish reel has three times the stopping power of any previous Waterworks Lamson reel. At its heart you will find Lamson's legendary sealed conical drag system except much bigger!

This "supercharged" sealed drag system is surrounded by a bulletproof structure machined from solid barstock aluminum. The innovative reel foot design improves the casting balance of the rod by moving the centre of the reel closer to the centre of gravity of the casting stroke. It also reinforces the strength of the reel at this key point. Make sure that you take your Vanquish on your trip of a lifetime!

Scott Rods - E2

Scott E2 rods have gained a following as the go to performance rods in sleeve over ferrule design. E2 rods balance light in the hand. The fast actions deliver tight loops, high line speed, and accuracy. The blanks are designed with thin walls and large diameters to keep you in touch with the line and give you positive control over your casts and drifts. E2 rods will help you reach out longer, mend complex currents, and control powerful fish.

Those instructions are printed on the custom-designed Complete Hatch fly boxes, so the "secrets" are in your vest pocket, not back in some book on your shelf. Based on entomological studies and years of experience on the stream, I wrote fly-by-fly fishing instructions for every different mayfly collection. I also knew that the behaviors of different mayfly species, dramatically determine where, when and HOW you should fish different flies.
