What's New in Fly Fishing

Fall 2006

The Fly Fishing Retailer Show in Denver proved to be as exciting and interesting as past shows. New products that excite us and which will be in stock at Ernie's soon are:

Z-AXIS, the new fast action rod from SAGE. This new rod is lighter and stronger than anything SAGE currently has in their line-up of fine rods. The Z-Axis replaces the very popular XP rods. Available in line weights 3 through 10. We have so far received one of the new Z-Axis rods . . .a 9' 5wt. Come in and cast it! The very popular Fli and Launch rods, introduced last year, are now available as an outfit -- rod, reel and line with nice cordura case.

BORON by WINSTON The quality you expect is evident in this new Boron LLT Series. Lightweight, but powerful. Also, WINSTON'S popular 5 piece LT is a popular choice whether hiking or travelling or fishing your own water.

SIMMS designs their clothing for fishing and their focus is keeping the fisherman comfortable in all types of weather. Protection from the sun and their 3XDRY materials that wick the moisture away insures comfort. Hats, shirts, pants and gloves all carry SPF from 15 to 50. SIMMS' new breathabe G4 wader is designed with waterproof front zipper! Along with new stretch mesh suspender system for added comfort these waders are one of the most advanced in the wader market. We also will have available, by special order, breathable waders for kids. These new products join the growing line of SIMMS fishing apparel and technical outerwear prized by the fisherman.

ORVIS is replacing their Rocky Mountain large arbor with the Rocky Mountain Turbine, in their lower priced reel line-up. This reel is a great value in large arbor reels offering dependable offset drag, huge backing capacity in line weights 3 to 9. Also new from ORVIS is their Battenkill Large Arbor which improves on the very popular Battenkill Mid Arbor design, in line weights 7-12. Winning the prestigious Field & Stream Best of the Best for 2006 is the ORVIS Zero Gravity rod. This series of freshwater and saltwater rods has been an exciting seller and new models are being added to this line. Boron makes this a powerful and strong rod.
