About the GR70 Fly Rod
If you thought the Greys GR50 fly rod was a winner, you might want to take a little step back and make some room for the real star of the Greys GR rod series. Presenting, brand new for 2016, the Greys GR70 Fly Rod.
For all the fans of the Greys rod range, the GR70 is part of the new GR series and is a prestigious, more powerful upgrade from the GR50 that will seriously impress you. The GR70 fly rod has been specifically created and designed for use in both stillwater and river fishing.
The GR70 Fly Rod is ideally suited for anglers who have more experience and have developed a good sense of timing and casting techniques. Combining these kinds of fly fishing skills with the GR70 and you will feel like you are literally casting magic.
The GR70 is built from high modulus carbon and this innovative material produces a very light and very sensitive rod body. The GR50 was made of high intermediate modulus carbon that is slightly less stiff than the GR70. The GR70 fly rod's stiffness results in a much more durable and strong core rod that is then specially engineered to avoid any kind of brittleness.
The high modulus carbon construction combined with a fast action, makes the GR70 incredibly powerful and high performing. The stiffness along with limited flexibility allows the rod to be cast effortlessly when fishing in windy weather. It will also help you to generate longer casts and the strength will help you bring in a fish quicker and easier, especially larger fish.
These 4 piece rods have high quality and creative design features including a 2 part skeletal reel seat with an aesthetically stunning carbon woven spacer. The skeletal reel seat is a benchmark in handle construction design and the light weight materials will keep your rod consistently light in weight from top to bottom.
Additionally, the GR70 also features rod line up I.D marked dots to allow you to seamlessly line up your rod eyes with complete ease so you can set up your rod and get out on the water much quicker.
The Greys GR70 Fly Rod is a dark, olive gunmetal grey coloured rod with silver highlights and features a superior, high quality AAA cork handle. The rod is available with a reverse half wells handle on the 9ft #5 and the 9ft #6. The rest are supplied with full wells handles with fighting butts.
Each rod is supplied with a high quality rod tube and is covered by Greys Warranty. Please visit Greys Fishing website for more detail.

About the GTS500
The Greys GTS500 Fly Reel is the replacement for the popular GX500 Cartridge Reel. The GTS500 is manufactured from Black, Die-cast Aluminium and is far superior in design and consistent in build quality to its predecessor.
The GTS500 is the most affordable of the two options in the Greys GTS Cartridge Reel range. We think the rulon disc drag system is more than adequate for the situations these reels will commonly face. With a single turn of the drag knob you have the softest to the hardest of drag. The large arbour design increases line retrieve speeds and provides superior capacity for more than enough backing. The clear polycarbonate cassette spools aid with line identification and make the reel very attractive. Three spools are included in the package but extra spools are available individually for you to use this superb reel with all of your lines.
The two sizes of 5/6/7 and 7/8/9 have presented an option for the angler to balance their #7 rod with the smaller or larger versions of the reels. This is a feature we have appreciated within our store when suggesting suitable matches to customer's existing or new rods and lines. The quick “tool-less” change of winding direction is ideal and changing spools whilst on the water is as effortless as we think it could possibly be.

About the Greys Platinum Extreme Fly Line
The Greys Platinum Extreme Fly Line lives up to its name, delivering optimum presentation and extreme casting with minimal effort, to achieve distances like you’ve never seen before.
This range of lines are built with an Ultra low memory to straighten out your loops and enhances your casts, allowing them to be smooth, long and deliver excellent line presentation. The pronounced front taper, short rear taper and overall low diameter combined together produce incredible power and effortless distance casting.
The smooth, slick finish helps the line travel out farther and will enhance the casting performance when your line passes through your rod guides. The lines all include a dual colour with a high-vis running line for optimum casting and bite indication.
These lines are available in different densities and weights, including a Floating, Intermediate, Sink 3, Sink 5 and Sink 7.

About the Greys Platinum Stealth Fly Line
The range of Greys Platinum Stealth Fly Lines are specifically designed with finely tuned tapers to create the perfect balance between power and delicate presentation whilst still achieving incredible distance.
This range is the ultimate combination of distance and presentation and neither of these fundamental features have been sacrificed in the design process of these lines. Built on an ultra low memory, this provides the lines with phenomenal casting performance and the smooth, slick finish allows the line to pass easily through your guides and really cast out across the water.
The taper designs provide you with a delicate and light presentation that gives finely controlled turnover combined with outstanding power. The lines feature subtle dual colours that enhance the line’s stealth capabilities as the colour will reduce the risk of spooking any fish. Each line also has a subdued stealth finish, colour and line lift off.
In the Stealth range you will find floating, intermediate and Wakesaver (Float/Int tip) versions.
The Wakesaver is a full floating line with a short 2ft intermediate tip section merging into it. The sinking tip eliminates leader wake on the slowest retrieves, and reduces the angle that the tippet makes with the fly line. The high visibility floating section helps detect subtle takes and the taper allows for good long-range presentation.
The Wakesaver is suitable for a whole range of techniques like static nymphs, wet hoppers, loch-style drifting and fishing suspender buzzers. Even dry fly fishing can be revolutionised when the surface tension prevents the leader from sinking and the fish are spooked.
The Greys Platinum Stealth Fly Line is perfect for use on rivers, streams and Stillwater and is available in a range of line weights. Each line is also supplied with two braided loops.
