There was also attractive luggage on display. The Solace foldall particularly impressed. Fitted with a foldout, adjustable bivvy table, it doubles as the perfect tackle station as well as a spacious carryall. The table can also be completely removed to create room for another pocket. Another great feature is the bankstick-retention system, which allows you to put your rod rests in the top of the foldall for easy access and protection.
The extendable landing-net handle is also sure to be a hit, featuring a twist-lock system, it can extend from five foot all the way to nine feet five inches. The landing net is super-strong but remains lightweight. The added length is perfect for the angler who likes to fish with zig rigs because it will make netting fish a doddle.
Wychwood also exhibited its range of bite alarms. The new Solace alarms are packed full of technology and are excellent value for money. You get a choice of six LEDs and a full range of sensitivity, volume and tone settings. Each alarm comes with a protective case and a two-year warranty. There is also a nationwide deal that when you buy three alarms you get the Solace receiver free.
The new products will be released in late November, just in time for Christmas, so they are well worth a look.”
