THE BESTTACKLE


EVO SLEEPING BAGS


STANDING out as something ‘a bit special’ during a sneak preview of new products last autumn at their Essex HQ, Fox report their success of the year has been their Evo sleeping bag range. These bags revolutionised the way carp anglers slept – overnight!


Product Development director Shaun


McSpadden puts the success down to the fact that, unlike traditional sleeping bags, which are constructed with panels through which heat quickly escapes, the Fox Evo range features off-set panelling construction that vastly reduces heat loss and allows the hollow fill fibres to expand to their full potential to keep you warm in the harshest conditions. Combined with the revolutionary breathable and waterproof Ven-Tec material, a reinforced Oxford Nylon


420-denier base, elasticated hoods top and bottom with bedchair fixing, internal and external draft proof baffles and double 10 mm quick-release zips, the bag has quickly found success. ‘Promotionally the sight of Ian Chillcott’s Ven-Tec bag being soaked with a bucket of water and him


emerging totally dry, then simply shaking the bag dry brought home to anglers just how revolutionary the fabric really was,’ commented Fox International’s Ian Welch, and we agree. Generously-sized at 100 x 220 cm, the best selling Ven-Tec All Season is also supplied with a removable


and reversible (polyester/fleece) inner bag, which can be taken out in warmer weather and used as a duvet or blanket, so that you effectively get two bags in one! Fox raised the bar when they launched these bags for the specialist angler. The Evo Ven-Tec design comes with an RRP of £139.99.


Fox Evo sleeping bags have gone down well, particularly the waterproof and breathable Evo Ven-Tec All Season, seen here undergoing ‘the bucket of water’ test with Ian Chillcott inside.


SPECIAL


HARDY MARKSMAN 11 FT 10 IN. SPECIALIST


It’s a real pleasure to fish with the Hardy Marksman 11 ft 10 in. Specialist Float Rod.


FLOAT ROD A FEATHERWEIGHT of a rod that really does make you want to get out on the bank. As soon as you pick up one of the Marksman 11 ft 10 in. Specialist Float rods you’ll realise why they’ve proved so popular. The delightfully lightweight


two-piece rods were launched in January 2010 and they have become the fastest selling rod in the current Marksman range. ‘Its amazing anti-lock action,


combined with superbly crisp casting and striking power, has seen this rod capture a wide audience, ‘ explained Gavin Burn from Hardy Greys. ‘It’s superb when trotting small


rivers for dace, roach, grayling and chub, also for fishing light to medium waggler tackle on shallow lakes. It also suits canals and drains, along with more refined float fishing tactics on commercial fisheries,’ he added. Designed on a super-thin high-modulus carbon blank, Hardy Greys say


it’s just the right length and has the perfect forgiving action for close to medium-range float fishing. The novel 11ft 10 in. format cleverly offers similar reach to normal 12 ft float rods, thanks to a marginally shortened handle, which also makes for

faster and easier handling. And when broken down, the two sections end up a comfortable length


to fit standard 6 ft ready-style holdalls, allowing the rod to be stored fully tackled up and ready for action. A great choice when light line and small hooks are required to tempt


bites. The extra bonus is that as it weighs just 185 gr, so you’ll hardly notice you’re holding a rod at all. The RRP is £269.99.
