This year I decided that I would no longer let the weather dictate when
I was going to go fishing, with the current climatic trend for warmer,
wetter weather 12 months of the year, I was looking for a jacket that
was lightweight yet practical.
Step Forward the new ESP Camo Stash Jacket with its cool
Northern European style camo pattern & understated ESP logo. But there
is more to this jacket than colour alone . It has several attributes
that make it an excellent choice for long or short session anglers. The
design is based on the modern day principle of multi layering, whereby
the angler uses several thinner garments on top of each other ,
depending on the temperature, so that the jacket can be worn throughout
the year. The full zip style makes it easy to slip on or off when the
weather as it often does, takes a turn for the worse and space in the
bivvy or shelter is at a premium. The jacket is made from Nylon lined
material that is soft, silent and extremely waterproof (5,000mm
Hydrostatic head) whilst retaining some breathability (3,000mm ). It is
also just the right length to be worn with either waterproof trousers or
Bib n’ brace ( also available in the same pattern). The sleeves have
reinforced elbows and Velcro adjusters with snug fit neoprene cuffs to
keep out the water when casting or playing fish. There is an internal
security pocket big enough to take keys or a mobile phone, and 2 outer
kidney pockets with outer velcro secured flaps.
However the jackets’ most outstanding feature is its hood.
I’ve had countless fishing jackets with either a three quarter or soft
peaked hood that is use to neither man nor beast. The hood on a fishing
jacket is the most important feature. The hood on the Stash jacket
extends well over the head and its opening has a wide semi rigid shape
that allows the angler to see all around without having to wear a
baseball cap . There is ample room for a headtorch if needed so the
jacket can be worn at all times of the day , and elasticated toggles at
either side to be adjusted by the individual. When down this acts like a
high collar, protecting the wearer from the wind.
In conclusion I would have to say that the new Camo
stash jacket is an excellent buy for any angler who is willing to fish
whatever the elements , but then what would you expect to get from
parent company Drennan, who have a reputation for doing their homework
when it comes to individual product design ? I now plan to fish through
the winter safe in the knowledge I will be dry enough to concentrate on
my next conquest.

Shakespeare Salt Beach Tripod Rest
This powder coated blue tripod is strong & stable yet lightweight, with plenty of features to aid the angler.
When folded it measures a mere 1.25m (4ft) and packs away nice & neat into hard wearing nylon bag that is big enough to accomodate a rod as well.
When fully extended the the legs measure 2.20 metres, ideal for use with longer continental style rods. The stand comes comes with a double head & cups so the angler can fish 2 rods side by side , aiding bite detection. For stability there are 2 arms , or stabilizing bars from the back leg to the front two that when locked into position enable the angler to easily carry the stand with rods on, essential when mobility is required for fishing shallow storm beaches. There is also a hook that hangs from the the centre of the stand to attach a light or bag, and 2 plastic fittings on each arm for hanging ready made traces.
All in all the complete package.
