iTackle Magazine from Bauer

Posted by Editor On September - 1 - 2011

iTackle MagazinePublishing giant, Bauer have just released a new digital magazine on fishing tackle - and what's more - it's free!

iTackle magazine comes from the makers of Angling Times and being digital offers the fisherman much more in terms of a tackle review than traditional press.

The pilot issue of iTackle is out now (get it here) and features Shimano's new Aero Technium Mgs carp reel that we featured last month, as well as the new Middy 14.5m MTDI Shock Core Fusion XP45 pole and the feature-packed Nordik Tackle Octbox Mk2 seatbox.

We wish Bauer all the best with iTackle. We like it a lot. The oscillation rate demonstration on the Mgs is fantastic.

Traditionally, fly anglers have relied on extended, light line leaders to facilitate a realistic dead drift of a nymph. However most anglers use a standard line. It's this part of the set up Climax outlined as an area for refinement.

With the Climax Super Fine Tip, the lightweight body features Read the rest of this entry »
