It includes a large main body storage pocket, a Tippet Whippet docking station, and a water bottle pocket with retainer.
Ultralight Foam Fly Box
This innovative Ultralight Foam Fly Box is light and portable, making it easy to select the right fly when you’re on the water. Micro slits in the interior hold flies securely.

Smith Lowdown 2 Sunglasses
Sunglasses are an all-weather must-have for fly anglers. So a new pair of stylish Smith Lowdown 2 sunglasses is a great gift.

All anglers will find this single Rod & Reel Case an invaluable part of their fly fishing kit. Made from 100% recycled polyester and 600D Cordura® Eco, this case offers reliable protection for your 4-piece rod and reel combo. It can carry rods up to 10 feet in length, and features a padded area to protect your reels. With a zip closure, this case offers secure, easy-access storage for your fishing gear.
Perfect your casting stroke and develop your technique with this fly fishing Practicaster. With three hook-and-loop trout targets, this innovative learning tool can be used both indoors and outdoors, so it’s ideal for anyone hoping to refine their casting technique. It’s suitable for all ages, so it’s a great fly fishing gift for young anglers (as well as those who are a little longer in the tooth).
Hy-Flote Floatant System
The Hy-Flote Floatant System is designed to keep your flies buoyant. This all-in-one kit includes a premium gel, paste, powder, and fly dryer to breathe new life into your favourite tried-and-tested flies. The temperature-stable gel won't melt or harden, and the paste can be used to give tippets and leaders extra buoyancy.
