New Wychwood SLA MkII Truefly reel
Not only is the SLA MKII a more aesthetically pleasing fly reel, having been slimmed down and refined so that each curve and nuance serves a purpose, either to highlight it is contoured lines or its feel and fit when its in use. It is also - and heres the key - very, very light.
This reel is over half an ounce lighter than the old SLA weighing in at an anorexic 183gramms! This remarkable achievement was possible thanks to some judicious design and production processes.By carefully removing as much material as possible from the die cast aluminium frame and cage, without compromising on the reels integrity or functionality, we were able achieve our target goal of making the SLA MKII the lightest fly reel in its class.*
The reels functionality is superb, incorporating a semi-sealed Rulon drag system, a snug, compression fit spool and now featuring sculpted spool release and drag knobs, for a comfortable feel when in use.The MKII combines good looks with serious performance values.

Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail
Tapered synthetic fly tying fibers.
Tie flies of all types and sizes with Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail, a tapered synthetic multi-use fly tying fiber designed to imitate typical premium-length natural bucktail.
Fish-Skull Faux Bucktail fibers have the same basic diameter, gentle crinkle, and taper as natural bucktail. In appearance, it looks almost identical and has the same distinctive bucktail fly or lure action in the water. However, the fibers are not hollow (which helps your fly sink faster) and will not “flare” in the same way as regular bucktail while tying. This means you will need to tie with slightly different techniques to achieve the same effect.
