Berkley Nanofil UK Release Date

Posted by Editor On October - 17 - 2011

Berkley NanoFilWe didn't get a clear answer when we spoke to the Pure Fishing representative at the Tackle & Guns Trade Show yesterday, but it would appear that the amazing new Berkley Nanofil will be in the shops before 2011 is out - or ever so slightly more accurate, in 'one or two months'.
We can't wait to try out the thinnest versions of this line. We got to man-handle the line yesterday and have to say Read the rest of this entry »

Tackle and Guns 2011
The Tackle and Guns Trade Show is upon us once again. Every October the T&G show attracts a mass of UK retailer, tackle manufacturers and press. Meetings are had, orders are taken and most exciting for us, the next season's tackle is on display to gorp and drool over.
