This is your bag for comfortable, organized travel. 


5. Hatch Iconic Reels

The hardest working reel on the market. The Iconic puts the brakes on large, aggressive fish with an improved sealed drag system and looks good doing so.

Give the gift they will remember for a long time this holiday season.

If there was such a thing as a perfect medium, the Scott Centric would be a solid candidate. Not too soft and not too fast, this rod is guaranteed to put a smile on anyone who casts it. Scott improved upon the beloved Radian with the introduction of the Centric. The Centric offers optimal feel without sacrificing the power and range to stretch those 40 foot casts.
