Jamie Melvin

Growing up fly fishing on trout streams in Kenya and the UK, Jamie has traveled the world in search of fly fishing nirvana. From his time managing bonefish lodges in the Bahamas and running fishing safaris in East Africa, all the way to guiding on the flats of Seychelles, there aren't many species or environments he hasn't experienced firsthand.

G Loomis Asquith Review

G Loomis Asquith Review in 2023 – Fly Rods

The Asquith is one of the best all-around fly rods that has ever been made. Built from Spiral X tech, it’s incredibly light while being super powerful. It’s an extremely tough fly rod that compares to the NRX, just try and break it on a fish, it’s almost not possible.

The Exocett fly rod is made for fishing for large predatory fish, both in fresh and saltwater. The fast action and light design come with a lot of power and these rods really do perform exceptionally well when you need to cast small or big flies over 60ft, as is often the case in the salt.
