Shimano have tackled the problem of rod storage and protection when on the road, and now have their own rod tubes in a variety of useful sizes. There are 3 to choose from, all constructed from heavy duty PVC covered in a hard-wearing cloth, and are nylon lined for added protection.
Reel covers are important for protecting reels from scratches, flying salt spray, even dust when on the road, so they are especially useful in northern Australia. Shimano has a size to accommodate any reel, from diminutive 1000 size spin models right up to the 30,000 Stella.
Whether walking into that secret fishing spot, travelling on a boat, or in a car, Shimano Rod Wraps are the very best way of keeping a bunch of rods together and secure. They're also very handy for stopping rods in a rod tube from moving around when in transit.
Light tackle game fishing for marlin, tuna and sharks can often lead to fights of many hours' duration, so it's important to be wearing a comfortable rod bucket to limit fatigue - and to avoid wearing a hole in your stomach! This padded fighting belt from Shimano is fully adjustable, has a stainless steel gimbal pin, and is perfect for light tackle from 4 to 10 kilos, but also when jigging kings, fighting giant trevally on popper rods, or using any outfit that has a slotted gimbal butt cap.
