Ladies Specific Department

Ladies, we have sourced some fly fishing gear designed specifically for us!

Fishpond Women's Upstream Tech Vest rides higher & can be cinched down tighter for a more customized & versatile fit.
The sternum strap buckle closure gives a looser fit with adjustments for chest size and preferred height.
The Redington Women’s ESCAPE Waders are designed to provide all-day wading comfort, that will keep you dry season after season.

This durable 3-layer upper and a 4-layer lower material wader was built with a specific fit for accommodating women. The 4-layer lower offers extra durability where you need it and the 3-layer upper offers greater mobility and comfort.

No matter if it’s your first time stepping into the river to cast a fly or if you call the river home, the Women’s ESCAPE Waders offer you everything you need in a wader.
The Redington Women’s Benchmark wading boots offer you everything you need in a wading boot and nothing you don’t.

The simplistic design makes these boots lightweight to keep you on your feet longer and fishing harder. Lightweight, shock-absorbing EVA midsole for all-day comfort with improved drainage works to reduce water-log and maintain lightweight design.

Thanks to the quick-drying materials, anti-corrosive lace hooks, and abrasion-resistant material in the toe and heel areas, the Women’s Benchmark wading boots are ready for your next fishing adventure.
 
Improved Wading Gear Department!
We have re-categorised the Waders, Boots and Wading Essentials so you don't have to stress to find your perfect fit!
Waders & Boots by size so you do not have to wade (excuse the pun!) through options that are not available in your size and just see what there is for you to make a quick and easy decision hassle free!

The Michelin sole which Vision have designed together with the world famous Michelin tyre manufacturer offers multiple benefits over many other rubber soles. 


The front bumper is built into the out-sole so there’s no possibility for them to be separated. The pattern of the sole is inspired by Michelin LTX A/S tyre with modifications targeted for wading.
The lugs on the sides have aggressive sculptures giving you extra grip for slopes and muddy paths. The lugs in the middle have wave sipings for adherence and adaptability over uneven surface of the rocks.

The front and heel sculptures are designed to take the wear and tear during longer walks and their pattern adds traction when needed.

For extremely slippery & slimy conditions Vision made recessed positions for their Tungsten Carbide studs which can be added if needed.

The new Leeda Profil Breathable Chest Waders are constructed from a dark olive 3-ply breathable fabric with an extra 3-ply layer in the most important wear points at the knees and rear ensuring superb durability.

Featuring two external chest pockets and an internal pocket, which is perfect for storing a phone, car keys or other items you do not want exposed to the elements.

The Leeda Profil wading boot has been constructed using super light materials, incorporating a reinforced toe rand and padded ankle support which gives superb comfort for wading over long periods without compromising on durability or style.
The specially designed wading sole gives ultimate grip on all surfaces and is compatible with screw in studs for extra foot hold confidence.
