Quality reels, solar panels, and polarised goggles at Hooked on Green

Robin Eden and Joe Grimes, both keen fishermen who look after Hooked on Green, the tackle shop next door to Green DIY, are always on the lookout for products to improve the fishing experience.

This time they have chosen to add a Shimano X-Aero Baitrunner reel to their stock. They have selected it carefully from a wide variety available.

Joe said the reel suits a shorter length rod in vogue at the moment, nine to ten foot long – rather than 12 foot – which best suits fishing in the smaller ponds found in this area.

Another new product is a foldable solar panel which can be brought out to make the most of natural light while you are fishing or camping and be used to charge your electronic products, such as phone or tablet.
