Hot Deals from Redington!


Fly fishing supplier Redington has become best known for good value, “great quality, versatile performance products at an affordable price.”


Redington is owned by FarBank Enterprises of Washington, USA. FarBank  also owns Sage and Rio, makers of premium quality fly rods and fly lines. Some products directly benefit from this relationship. Redington’s Crosswater Reel can be purchased with a pre-spooled Rio line. Similarly, Sage fly lines are made by Rio, giving these suppliers a clear quality control advantage.


Another benefit is that the companies also share excellent customer service, so we can buy their products with confidence.


One of Redington’s most popular offerings include the aforementioned Crosswater fly reel, pre-spooled with 100 yd of backing, a Rio WF-5-F or WF8-F fly line and tapered leader, priced at $65 complete.


Another is Redington’s fishing vests, available in cool mesh or full-fabric. They sell for $40.


Redington’s Stratus II wading jacket has a waterproof, breathable fabric system, providing ultimate protection and comfort, priced at $130. The jacket, like Redington’s other products, is attractive and very well designed for the angler.


Very affordable 4-pc Pursuit fly rod outfits now come in a rod/reel case for protection, a neat package for hiking or ATV travel. Each comes with a Redington Pursuit fly reel pre-spooled with 100 yd backing, a Rio WF5F, WF8F, or WF9F fly line and tapered leader. Price is $195 complete. All that needs to be added is a fly.


The biggest news, though, is availability of Redington’s new Sonic-Pro Waders, featuring high-tech Ultra Sonic Welded construction (no stitches means no holes) and double-taped seams throughout.  Since most leaks developed at the stitched seams of older waders, their elimination gives these new waders a longer life expectancy. Sonic-Pro waders are available in chest ($249.95) and pant (199.95) styles. Wading boots are priced at $90.


Lloyd Lutes of Moncton, New Brunswick tied this wet salmon fly that placed 2nd in River Magic’s 2011 Fly Tying Championship (adult category). Jungle cock eyes seem best utilized on a mostly black fly, and they make all the difference in Lloyd’s fly. So does his fly tying skill!
