A couple of Fishpond packs now have a magnet system, at least on some of their pockets ( The Cross Current and Switchback Pro). The Wychwood packs have a similar look to the WJ packs but don´t have the magnets. Looks like they divvied the tech up between them...
I´m British but live in Austria. I`ve always enjoyed the fact that I could freely send things to and fro to my family, order stuff rom UK shops without hassle. No longer, unfortunately. Here are a couple of my experiences so far....

If you're going to try tenkara there's loads of...
I haven't used the Maxcatch nymph rods but there is a lot of discussion about them on their Facebook page. It seems that the Nano Nymph is by far the best, the Farglory is thought of as a bit floppy and the new In Touch (which I was interested in) is described as very top heavy. As...
