For over ten years now Guide Flyfishing have continued to supply UK and Irish dealers with innovative, award winning and inspiring products. Casting our net for world leading manufacturers as far afield as - America Rio Flylines, Redington Products and Waterworks Lamson - Finland Vision Group (the whole deal) - Japan C&F Design Fly Cases and CND Rods - New Zealand Mclean Nets, we have attained a diverse portfolio including rods, reels, fly lines, waders, clothing, fly boxes and all the bits in between. Only by experiencing the products ourselves first hand can we judge whether or not it is the right product at the right time and the all important right price for the UK and Irish market. We believe over the past ten years our judgement to be sound.
Here at the Brown Trout we pride ourselves on our selection of trout and salmon reels. Whereas most salmon reels have a modern disc braking system to facilitate playing larger species of fish- allowing the angler more control over his opponent, trout reels tend to be designed on a traditional click and pawl system, where the purpose is more to contain the line. Reels tend to become part of what one's pleasure is in fly fishing- they become old friends, and many a happy memory of epic struggles with fish are relived purely by taking one's reel out of its bag at the begining of a new season in anticipation of things to come. In both cases a reel is often considered to be what is loosely known as "Gentlenens Jewelry"! This is because many a reel is gifted to an angler from his/her partner to commerorate some special occasion.
