Based on the dimensions of the legendary fly hooks, like the B175, that found favour in the emerging big-carp scene, the Longshank X is perfect for tackling ultra-riggy fish on pressured waters. The 20-degree in-turned eye helps it to flip over and catch hold faster than any other hook and the long, straight point ensures good hook holds, time and again. Forging on the bend makes the Longshank X a formidable pattern, that won't let you down in tough, snaggy conditions. It can be used for pop-up and bottom-bait presentations.
DropZone Marker Float, Marker floats are a massive part of our armoury and finding particular spots can often be the difference between a red-letter day and a blank. Although there were some good marker floats already available on the market we still felt that improvements could be made. The first criterion from Danny was that the flight had to be extremely visible, anyone who has seen Danny fishing will know that he likes to fish at range! It also had to be light and buoyant. This took a while to get right but we achieved exactly what we wanted and the Dropzone Marker float was born. The floats are made from a thin but exceptionally durable plastic and come as a pair in their own tough, protective tube. Each pack comes with two flights.
Zig - Anti Tangle Sleeve, This anti-tangle sleeve has been designed specifically for use with our ZigKit and fits it perfectly. The smaller bore is perfect for the QC swivel which the ZigKit comes supplied with, and it is also shorter than the existing sleeves which Korda produce. It is clear so as to make it as unobtrusive as possible in mid-water, and it can also be used on floater set-ups to help kick the hook link away and prevent tangles.
PURE, Fluorocarbon line can be a real edge in your fishing, but many of the products on the market aren’t very user-friendly or are of poor quality, but now you no longer need to worry about that!After extensive testing, both by top match anglers as well as specimen hunters, we can bring you the new PURE fluorocarbon, which will be hitting a tackle shop near you from Monday onwards!We wanted something which not only performed incredibly well and which you know that you can rely on, but is also easy to use and offers consistency, and in the form of PURE, which is a premium quality fluorocarbon which we have sourced from Japan, we have found the perfect material.There are ten different diameters available ranging from 0.08mm to 0.30mm, all of which are accurately measured and stated, and corresponding breaking strains from 1lb to 10lb, which will cover everything from the lightest match fishing right up to specimen fishing for species such as tench and barbel. Many of the Guru team of anglers have already been putting it to good use by winning matches, and specimen hunter Stuart Court used it to good effect recently to land a personal best perch of 4lb 9oz from a river using the 0.22mm version. PURE is virtually invisible in water due to its refractive index and is also incredibly abrasion resistant and has exceptional strength for its diameter, but still retains enough suppleness to be user-friendly.It is the perfect choice for use as a hook length material or rig line, and comes on 50m spools. The spools will fit into the Guru EVA luggage and are designed to dispense PURE in a controlled way so that only the length that you need comes off of the spool.
15" QM1 Bayonet Rig, The all-conquering QM1 hooks are now available on ready-tied rigs. These 15-inch versions are supplied on EVA spools, so they can be dropped straight into the Guru Rig Box. Adam Rooney explained how and why they were developed, "We get inundated with calls and messages asking if we would ever do our famous QM1 hook ready-tied. So here they are, tied to the same high standard as our existing range. I'm confident to say I would be happy to use them myself in all match conditions. The EVA spools, which have been colour-coded and printed so you can simply store them directly in your Guru Rig Box for maximum protection. The QM1 design and packaging take ready rigs to a whole new level!"
