New Products at Big Y

We do our best at Big Y to consistently make the newest, nicest, and most economical products available to our customers as soon as possible. In the last couple of months we have added some products that we feel are worth mentioning.

Lets start with what has quickly become the newest fad in fly fishing... Tenkara. For those of you who have been doing it you know what we are talking about, others may have only heard of or it is completely new to you so let me explain. Tenkara fishing is one of the oldest forms of fly fishing, it originated in the high mountains of Japan. The concept is pretty primitive, a rod, line and fly, no need for a fancy fly reel here. It brings a new level of difficulty and zen to the sport. The original Tenkara users usually only had one or two types of flies they would use and the type of fly would vary from village to village (for Tenkara flies click here). The idea behind this was if the fish are going to bite they will bite if not then you try again tomorrow. This type of simplicity adds a whole new tranquility to the sport. Instead of getting frustrated the fish aren't biting Tenkara users tend to take a step back and simple chalk it up, that today is not the day. Big Y recently recieved some new Tenkara rods, which we are excited to show off. The blanks are made using nano carbon, the same technique used in our beloved nano rod line. The result is a lighter more durable Tenkara rod. The current rods are 12 feet long with 7 sections that breaks down into itself for easy storage and transportation. Tenkara rods are great for small and large rivers alike and do especially well when casting in a small area where presentation is of the utmost importance. For more info on these rods click here or on the picture below.

  The Big Y Tri-Pack has quickly become a favorite of customers looking for a vest/pack without the humongous price tag typically attached to vests like these. With popular demand growing we decided it was time to introduce another pack/vest combo to the Big Y line, The Big Y Deluxe Pack. It is fairly similar to our Tri-Pack, in the way it is form, however, there are some additional features worth mentioning. One is it is more form fitting, this pack isn't meant to be as expandable as our Tri-Pack, however one size still fits most. The back of this vest is formed slightly different to allow more airflow and reduce sweat. Two coiled zinger are attached conveniently to the vest, in addition there are two zinger attachment spots on the chest of the vest allowing you to keep all your tools and gadgets close by but out of the way. Each front pocket contains a fly patch keeping your most used flies close by, and allowing them to dry off before placing them back in the box. The pack part of the vest contains multiple D-Rings allowing you to pack your wading stick, net, and whatever else out of the way and securely.

     Finally is Drift Products, a lot of you are probably like how are these guys? Well Drift Products is a new company new to the world of fly fishing and excited to build a brand for themselves. They make one of the finest reels at the lowest price point we have ever seen. Their reel is an all machined reel using a carbon disc drag. Most reels in this area with similar price points are plastic or die cast, with click/pawl drag systems. We personally field tested these reels before bringing them on and have to say we are pretty darn impressed. Only available in a 3/4/5 weight they are great for most trout, bream, and smallmouth rods. These reels are great for someone looking for a durable and yet economical reel, they work great for kids, someone just starting out, or on a secondary setup.

   Additionally Big Y has started carrying Drift Products Leader and Tippet. Not as impressive as the reels, however, they are offering the cheapest leader and tippet in the industry. At $2.95 for a spool of 50 meter tippet or a package of leader, they are pretty hard to bet. The test strength on these is a little low when compared to other brands out there so be sure to order accordingly. For more info please click here or on one of the pictures.
