Ultra-lightweight River and Brook series
Lightweight River Dry Fly & Nymph series: 9' 6" #3, 10' #2, 10' #3 and 11' #3 
Our river dry fly and nymph rods are aimed squarely at the ‘light line’ specialist who has come to appreciate the need for sensitive control, and extreme accuracy with a feel to match, when ‘fishing light’.  
Originally developed in Eastern Europe, the longer, lighter styles of nymph fishing and dry fly rods have become increasingly popular for river fishing and the new Graphene material further enhances this. These rods lend themselves to effortless and untiring Czech and French nymphing techniques and the 9' 6" #3 weight model is the ideal rod for dry fly or dual purpose. These lighter options are all fitted with the European style tapered handle and burl wood collars.

Prestige Gold Fly Reels 

To complement our class-leading Prestige G-XS fly rods the new Prestige Gold fly reels provide an ultra-lightweight reel option for superb balance on today’s lightweight carbon fl y rods. Precision CNC-machined from solid, high grade aircraft aluminium bar stock. The CNC design programming ensures that the maximum amount of metal is removed, for the lightest weight possible whilst retaining optimum strength and rigidity. 
Prestige Gold Fly Reels
The large arbor design allows faster retrieve, more consistent drag performance and minimal line memory. 
Internal parts, such as the main spindle and clutch bearing, are manufactured from stainless steel for corrosion resistance even in salt-water, while the precision one-way roller clutch bearing provides instant drag control when that ‘smash take’ catches you by surprise. 
The reels are finished in a beautiful, understated satin gold colour, giving these quality reels a classy look. The hard gold anodised finish provides superb saltwater and chip resistance. The comfortable spool handle and counter weight are machined from aluminium and hard anodised in a contrasting black colour. The counter-weight (left) features another Snowbee innovation – a machined groove, tightly fitted with two small rubber O-rings. This allows you to slide your tippet down between them to hold it securely, while you are walking to the boat or bank. The quick release spool and simple left to right hand conversion, ensures the Prestige Gold reels will provide a long, untroubled fishing life. 
This concise new range covers all requirements from the smallest brook fishing up to salmon, sea-trout and saltwater. Complete with a dark red neoprene reel case, these reels offer unmatched performance coupled with real value for money.

Prestige Gold Fly Lines 

Firstly, we experimented with different PVC coating materials until we found the formula which gave just the right compromise between hardness and longevity v’s softness, suppleness and memory-free performance. We came down firmly on the side of the latter and make no excuses for that. Yes, we could have made our lines to last longer and in fact they do today, with the New Nano-Technology coating, but at the time, in doing so would have sacrificed the memory-free performance they have become famous for. 
Those loyal customers who have used our lines, since their inception more than 25 years ago, will remember those early lines were marketed under the 'Prestige' brand name. Even today, many of our customers still refer to our original ivory floating line as the 'Prestige'. With the introduction of our top-of- the-range Prestige G-XS fl y rods, we thought it time to bring the famous and much loved name back into play! 
What hasn’t changed is our unique PVC coating material. Although this was already the softest, slickest material on the market, it has steadily evolved over the years, to improve it further. The introduction of our new Nano Coating Technology took our coating materials on to the next level and offers an even smoother finish, and a slicker, higher-floating performance coupled with a longer life. 
Available in sizes: Floating WF5-8
