Getaway with Shimano!

Hey guys todays article is about one of our sponsors, Getaway Outdoors and the new Shimano gear they have in stock that I think is a must have for every keen angler out there.

The first of the Shimano gear that I think is a must have to any angler is the West Coast rod range that is exclusive to Getaway Outdoors. There are 5 rods in the range and one of them is guaranteed to fill your needs with flick rods for your smaller species up to heavy overhead rods for trolling or ballooning. The rods are as follows:

  • West Coast Wave, a 6 foot 6 2-4kg flick rod valued at $49.90
  • West Coast Flickr, a 6 foot 6 2-5kg flick rod valued at $99
  • West Coast Wanderer, a 9 foot 2 beach rod valued at $99
  • West Coast Reefer, a 5 foot 8 15-24kg overhead rod valued at $99
  • West Coast Jigmeister, a 5 foot 7 15-24kg jigging rod valued at $1291

Head into any of the 7 locally WA owned and operated Getaway Outdoors stores to have a look at their range of rods and for the month of July you can receive 30% off if you are a Club Getaway Member, no worries if you’re not a member it is free to join and can be done on the spot so make sure you ask a team member.

The next range tha3t I want to talk to you about is the Shimano Egixile squid jig range, these jigs for myself are proving dynamite on the squid. The squid season is well and truly underway and the numbers are thick. These jigs range in size from a 2.5 up to the bigger 3.5 and come in a range of colours to suit all your needs. These jigs are valued at $19.95 each and are definitely worth their value and a must have for any squidder.IMG_1072

The last product that I want to talk about is the NEW Shimano hoodie range which has joined the range of Shimano vented fishing shirts that are stocked throughout Getaway Outdoors. These hoodies come in a range of colours and styles ranging from $69.95 to $99.95 and with the cold weather lately these hoodies are perfect for the early starts and late finishes that fishing brings with it.2

So head into any of the 7 Getaway Outdoors stores and see any of their helpful staff to have a look at these products and purchase soe of your own.
