Value For Money - Staff Picks!

We're often asked for recommendations of the best value products on the shelves, the stuff we use that doesn't let us down, the goods that have landed recently that caught our eye.

The guys in our Edinburgh Store have put together a few stand-out items for your consideration!

Gemini New & Improved Splash Down Solo Clip

Our sea fishing guru Ian swears by these Splash Down Clips as one of his cod fishing essentials. 

A revolutionary bait clip that will not only clip your baited hook behind the sinker, but lock it in place until impact with the water. Great for off the ground casting and streamlining your rigs during flight these clips.

Power Swivels

These are excellent value for money we recommend the Size 5 Swivels which are under £2 for a pack of 10, despite their small size they're rated to 195lb. 

High quality, great value, strong swivels from available in 10 and 50 packs. Ideal for a range of applications. 

Tronixpro Eva Rig Winders

A must-have for any sea-anglers box, these little winders give you the ability to store your rigs in a safe and tidy container whilst still having easy access. 

Perfect for keeping your rigs neat and tidy. Winders are 6.5cm x 1.8cm Durable EVA Construction

Shimano Sienna Front Drag Spinning Reel: 4000FG

Hands down one of the best budget spinning reels in the shop - a strong and reliable drag system with a sleek design.

There are many poor-quality spinning reels on the market with ‘high specs’ (advertising with 10 ball bearings, etc). The Sienna does not have 10 ball bearings, but it has the quality which Shimano is known for; strong and smooth Shimano gearing, aluminium spool and a strong XT-7 body.

Daiwa J-Braid Grand

An excellent deal for any Pike/Pollock angler looking to fill their spinning reel with one of our most popular braided lines. 

Strong, and resistant to abrasion yet well-bodied enough to lay smoothly on the spool. J-BRAID x8 GRAND is spun with Izanas, a state-of-the-art new material utilizing 8 Carriers.

Fisheagle Hunt Lures

A very popular sandeel styled metal lure for a fantastic price when compared to anything similar from other brands, a must-have for Pollock/Bass/Seatrout.

The all-new Fisheagle Hunt Lures are deadly for all salt and freshwater fish. They feature a sandeel style body and are designed so that they can be cast a huge distance. 

Saltwater Pro Lead Fish

Probably our favourite metal for Pollock fishing, this is an excellent searching pattern and with the price it's nice not to want to go swimming in after them when you lose one.

A brilliant holographic Sea Lure, can be used to catch a wide variety of species.

Westin ShadTeez R 'N R 

Chris's favourite Pike/Perch Shad varying the size to suit the species and the water. Available pre-rigged and ready to fish in packs, they're ready to rock n roll straight away.

These shads are perfectly detailed in every way, ShadTeez even has a double layer of clear coating to give a realistic “fish-slime” look! The deep body, slender wrist and wide tail create a rolling, belly-flashing swimming action that leaves big predators spellbound.

Shakespeare Excursion Spinning Rods

For £30 or less, you won't find many spinning rods that match this level of quality. A range of sizes to suit any type of spinning they're a bargain.

This rod series has stainless steel guides with stainless steel inlays which are resistant to braided lines. Graphite construction for a lighter and more sensitive rod with an ergonomically designed handle and a  modern white finish with blue accents. 

Complete Alarm Set with 40cm Banksticks & Swinger

For anyone looking to take up dead-bait fishing without breaking the bank, this is an excellent starter kit. Batteries Included!!

This Stillwater Complete Bite Alarm set comes complete with a bite alarm (batteries included) two extendable banksticks, swinger, and rear rest. A grab and go pack that will turn bites into fish on the bank.
