Hardy Sintrix

Meet the All New Scott Radian Until now, you’ve had to choose between a rod with power and line speed, or a rod with touch and feel. But thanks to Scott, those days are over. Fast and Feel have finally come together. So, how’d we do it? We dramatically increased recovery speed with our new ReAct technology. By minimizing energysapping vibrations, ReAct creates fast action, high line speed rods with all the nuance and feel of a presentation rod. There isn’t a finer production rod in existence. Each and every Radian is handcrafted in Montrose, Colorado by anglers who know fly rods. In stock now.

SINTRIX™ is carbon fibre held together with a resin impregnated with silica nano spheres. This new technology produces a material that is significantly stronger and lighter than traditional carbon fibre. The even distribution of the nano spheres throughout the resin leads to crisp and clean rod actions. Silica nano spheres resist compression forces better than any other known material. This results in a fishing rod that is at least 60% stronger than a standard carbon fibre rod without interfering with the action. The improved compression characteristic also greatly improves impact resistance and durability.

Outfitting anglers since 1986

What’s the best way to test waders? Get someone who practically lives in waders to give ‘em heaps! We asked Trout guide, Commonwealth Gold Medallist and competition angler, Christopher Bassano to try them for a season. Christopher wears waders for about 250 days a year and he gave Aquaz the big thumbs up. ‘Right up there, and in fact better than some of the highly priced brands used by some snobs and greenhorns. ‘Love the fit and comfort, great belt and gravel guards, and reinforced knees. And when I learned the price I couldn’t believe it’. We are so confident in Aquaz waders we offer a three year seam

warranty. If the seams leak within three years we will repair or replace your waders — no questions asked. However, to be fair, if you roll down a forest of black berries, have the crotch eaten out by a Tassie Devil, or lose a fight with a barbed wire fence, we will gladly sell you a repair kit to keep the water out. Worn by Christopher - Aquaz Trinity chest, stocking foot waders and Aquaz Trinity wading jacket. Breathable Waders from $229 to $299 Breathable Jackets from $229 to $299 Visit your local specialist retail outlet to view the full range of Aquaz products from thermals, wading boots, softshell jackets, gloves.

THE SINTRIX STORY When we launched the first SINTRIX technology rods in 2010, some people were sceptical. How will the claims of improved technology translate into fishing rods? Is it just hype? Almost three years on we have a range of fly rods that have won accolades from the press, competition anglers, professional guides, and of course the hundreds of other anglers out there enjoying their sport with these rods.

Not only have many anglers found it’s the rod they like best, Zenith rods have come out top in some pretty scientific head-tohead tests against other leading fly rods—Yellowstone Angler’s ‘shoot-outs’ have gained cult status with those who really want to get into the detail when choosing a rod, and in 2011 the Zenith 9’ #5 topped the 5-weight shoot-out, and the Zenith 8’6 #4 followed up with a win in the 4wt shoot-out in 2012.

The improved strength/reduced weight was the headline for the technology, but the rods shine for a different reason—they’re an absolute joy to fish with. The rods feel feather light in hand and can control and manipulate a fly line a short range, and can also deliver a long cast or pressure a strong fish in a tight situation.

535 CR in stock NOW

Bar Crusher 535 series gets a boost Bar Crusher’s popular 535 hull series has been upgraded to incorporate the innovative Quickflow™ water ballast technology. Bringing the 535 series – which is available in CR (cuddy runabout), SC (side console) and XS (rear centre console) versions – inline with the rest of the Bar Crusher range, the Quickflow system incorporates a cavity running the full length of the keel that’s open at the transom. This cavity quickly fills with water when the boat is stationary, which lowers the chines into the water for greater stability, and is jettisoned from the hull in seconds as the boat moves forward to allow it to leap effortlessly onto the plane. The 535 series upgrade extends the versatility of what was already a very capable hull. The 535 hull was launched as the ‘Wave Crusher’ series back in 2010, a concept which applied the superior engineering of other Bar Crusher models into a range of smaller boats. Constructed from high-tensile marine grade plate aluminium, the Wave Crusher series incorporated the Waveslicer smooth-riding hull and Rigideck sub-floor system for maximum hull strength, but not our Quickflow technology – until now! Although they’re the smallest models in the range, many 535 owners have continually praised the capabilities of their boats and are taking them further afield to target more species — out of the estuaries and into the bays and even offshore in the right conditions. Stability at rest is significantly boosted with the addition of Quickflow, which allows the boat to take-on several hundred kilograms of water ballast. The added weight and resultant stability is ideal when fishing at anchor for whiting or snapper, slow-trolling or jigging over reefs.

535 XS in stock NOW

For shallow-water applications, such as trout, bream and flathead under the power of an electric outboard, the optional Bar Flap system can be used to keep water out and ensure the boat is easily manoeuvred through tight waterways. Bar Crusher leads the industry in design excellence and quality to produce the most advanced plate aluminium boats on the market. Incorporating exclusive innovations such as Quickflow™ – water ballast technology; Rigideck™ – engineered sub-floor system; and Waveslicer™ – smooth non-pounding hull design, Australian-made Bar Crusher boats are renowned for their superior performance.

Hornet Heaven

The NEW QUINTREX Hornets are coming Deegan Marine are pleased to announce the NEW Quintrex Hornets are coming. These are the best Hornets ever with new bow design, heaps of storage and stability like no other boat. With the Eclipse V-Flared Hull the Hornet offers a smooth and steady ride in all conditions and amazing stability at rest. Already renowned as the best trout and estuary boat ever in Australia, Quintrex have now improved them even more.

F481 Hornet Shown above and opposite the F481 is the perfect size for Tasmanian trout and estuary fishing. And if towing the kids is important it is great for that too. Overall it is just on five metres and is comfortably driven by a 60HP motor through to a 90. This is a good beamy boat at 2.1 metres and tough 3mm bottom and transom sheet. An under-floor fuel tank gives you heaps of storage space under a multitude of hatches. Pedestal seats and side console give you what some describe as a ‘sports car’ feel. The 481 Hornet is light and easy to tow and has a range of options that boaters normally dream about. F481 arriving mid October.

Coming Soon QUINTREX ‘on water’ day Subscribe to our newsletter or like us on facebook for details when date is confirmed or of course contact us by email or phone if you would like to be notified.

to date. Yours could be one of them. That could mean a pod on the back or a total make over from a cuddy cab or runabout to a terrific little bay, estuary, lake, bream or trout boat.

Extraordinary fly fishing gear - developed for the world - Perfect for Tasmania

IKON Waders Chest and Thigh

NEW Vipu fly rod

These 4 piece rods have medium fast action, which will make them good all-rounders for almost every imaginable situation. The Vipu series is almost ridiculously cheap at around $220. The series includes four-piece rods from #3 to #6 and come in protective cordura tubes.

The 3/6 layer construction in F3.5 fabric offers you the most durability and comfort while wading. Stretchable belt, water resistant front pocket take these waders to a new level of technology. With or without a zip in front and thigh length as well.

Speed Wading Jacket The perfect wading jacket. Cut short to accommodate your waders, and keep you dry, but with heaps of storage. Highly breathable with a comfortable cut to allow free movement.

How good are IKON waders?

Nite fly rod

A rod even better than our world famous 3Zone. This four piece took us several years but we did it. The Nite is superior. It is well balanced, it has slim blanks, a very nice medium-fast action and budget price.

The readers of a UK based Total Flyfisher magazine voted Vision to be the Winner (Best manufacturer) in the Chest Waders category in their annual tackle awards survey in their January 2012 issue (see http://www.totalflyfisher.com). The magazine states: “These guys have been at the very forefront of wader design for some years now. The company’s breathable Ikon chest waders are a popular pick with most of us. Solid and reliable, these won’t let you down when it matters.” Distributed by Clarkson Imports. Available from all good tackle stores.
