Bamba gets an upgrade

Fluid has upgraded the Bamba, one of South Africa’s favourite fishing kayaks. The modifications have made it 4kg lighter, with double the in-hull storage space and a peaked deck for improved resurfacing during surf launches. Non-slip foam has been added to ensure effortless casting when standing up, while three rod holders and an extensive range of features make it the go-to kayak for the serious angler. The size of the central hatch opening ensures that all of your equipment, catches and even trolling motor batteries can be stowed inside the hull.

Big Catch oilskins and waders

Big Catch oilskins are made of a combination of PVC and polyester material. They are 100% water and windproof. The material is treated to prevent stiffness or cracking under cold temperatures. It is resistant to seawater, the effects of sunlight, animal and vegetable fats, grease, fish and motor oils. As many seams as possible have been removed, to prevent ripping and tearing; where there is a seam, it is doubled over and heat-welded, keeping it waterproof. The material in the groin has been doubled up to prevent unnecessary wear and tear. The jacket has two pockets. There are no zips, so there is no metal in any part of the suit, avoiding any rust damage. They come in sizes from small to 5XL. The waders are made of a nylon cloth-and-PVC combination material. The boots are made of heavy-grade PVC. All seaming is heat-welded. Shoe sizes range from 5 to 13.

MAKO eyewear: very Sleek

The Sleek’s smooth-style, wraparound frame makes it both sharp-looking and practical.

The lenses are manufactured with scratch-resistant glass and have over 12 layers of anti-reflective coatings. The Sleek is available in both an amber photochromic and blue mirror lens; the amber lens is recommended for freshwater and estuaries, while the blue mirror lens is suitable for high light levels,
