We could write an entire book on the adventure that has led to the development and introduction of the Cross S1 fly rods, but we wont. Instead, we would rather ask you to try one because the only way to truly understand what we mean is to test one for yourself.
For the 2014 season we introduce five new fast tempo and two medium fast tempo models. All models are also available as blanks.
Blank in aesthetic matte smoke finish.

A great salmon reel doesn't have to be as light as a feather. On the contrary, it can be good to have some weight. When used with a double handed rod, a reel is a much needed balancing element. In a world of big brute fish and rocky, slippery river banks, a salmon reel has to be able to take a lot of beating and punishment unlike its trout class cousins used on smaller streams.
The look of the reel follows closely the classical salmon reel design principles with only a few holes on the handle side of the reel to provide some amount of ventilation for your line and backing after long fishing hours. A full cage design will eliminate those unfortunate occasions when thin running line gets jammed between the frame and the spool. The final touch in our quest for the 'old school'... which in this case comes in the form of an absolute kick ass brake sound - it just can't get better than this.
We had an amazing weekend at this years Demo weekend. Great crowds in attendance both days and the weather also held off with bright sunshine on both Saturday and Sunday.
It was great to have so many anglers from around the country calling in during the day keen to try out the new ranges of gear on offer.
Great crowds for all demos
On Saturday we held one of our beginners fly fishing courses. The weather was wet and windy but all participants had a great day braving the conditions.
April gave some amazing warm sunny weather and some really good fishing. Hatches were sparse due to some cold easterly winds but we had some very good catches...
