Gardner Tackle Gardner Covert Dark Mugga Hooks
Gardner Covert Dark Mugga Hooks The legendary Mugga hook pattern has been pivotal in the capture of countless big carp. The latest Covert Dark Mugga hooks have been given a facelift with several key improvements that make them even better! Firstly, we have totally re-specified the shape and length of the Mugga’s point so they are longer and much sharper than before. The new long tapered points are a massive step up and ensure the hook pricks and penetrates even quicker. Next, we have swapped over to the new stripped down Covert Dark plating. This new finish still offers excellent camouflage thanks to the matt finish, and also ensures that we keep the sharpest possible point on the hook as it is a single electroplated finish and the reduction in handling during the finishing process means the points remain immaculate and razor sharp. We’ve also upgraded to a micro barb on all the new Covert Dark Hooks. This offers two major benefits. Firstly, many commercial fisheries require anglers to use patterns with small barbs as it is kinder to the fish’s mouth, and secondly micro barbed hooks are stronger as less wire is cut out to form the barb. This combined with the longer chemically etched point has made the Covert Dark Mugga a truly awesome hook. If you look at the design of the Mugga it’s not hard to see why it offers unrivalled hooking potential when used with a variety of hooklink materials. The aggressive hooking action and strong hook holds that the pattern gives are due to a combination of key features working perfectly together. The combination of a sweeping, slightly curve shank and a 25° in-turned eye cause the hook to flip as soon as the hooklink tightens or the hook eye reaches the edge of fish’s lip. This unique action means that the hook will take hold firmly in the corner of the mouth or in the bottom lip without having to add shrink tube to improve a less effective ‘similar’ pattern. After this the orientation between the hook eye and the super sharp straight point creates the best possible angle to aid the hook penetrating quickly and securely. Simply, this means you will land more fish. Covert Dark Mugga hooks are constructed using a forged, high carbon wire that has been double tempered to ensure they are amazingly strong relative to the wire gauge.*Heavier gauge ‘Continental Mugga’ hooks are available for anglers that need the strongest possible Mugga hooks. Gardner Covert Dark Mugga hooks feature: COVERT DARK matt finish. Longer, sharper chemically etched straight point. Short curved shank and 25˚ in-turned. Manufactured from forged, double tempered, high carbon steel wire for strength. Barbed or Barbless. Supplied as 10 hooks per packet.

Gardner Tackle Gardner GT-HD Line
Gardner GT-HD Line GT-HD is manufactured exclusively for Gardner Tackle with a unique high grade copolymer formula using cutting edge manufacturing processes to give the line reduced stretch and a crisp feel without compromising the other key characteristics. After all, why develop a line that offers exceptional feel if it doesn’t retain the high knot strength, great abrasion resistance, fast sinking and a lovely smooth supple feel that anglers want? By developing a main line that brings together all of these features ‘GT-HD’ sets a new benchmark in performance copolymer main lines. And by manufacturing GT-HD in an awesome low-viz colour we’ve created a line that simply out-performs all other low stretch lines in every way. Available in: 15lb (0.35mm) and 18lb (0.39mm)
Gardner Tackle Gardner HD Floater Line
Gardner HD Floater Line HD-Floater Line has been specially developed as a specialist floater line as it maintains its buoyancy without requiring any additional treatments to keep it floating. Incredibly, this very special main line also offers the perfect stretch characteristics for floater fishing; having reduced stretch for the best possible reaction and line pick up when striking, whilst still offering just enough give to help keep small hooks in place during protracted battles on balanced tackle. HD-Floater line has a low reflection finish to reduce visibility across a range of light conditions. If the carp you’re fishing for are acutely aware of lines then this obviously offers distinct advantages in terms of maintaining a covert presence whilst angling. Smooth finish and soft feel enables easy casting with small lightweight controller floats. HD-Floater is supplied on 250m level wound spools which ensure the line is pristine when spooled up. Available in: 10lb/0.29mm and 12lb/0.31mm
Gardner Tackle Gardner Intensive Care
Gardner Intensive Care Intensive Care spray is a new concept in angler focused fish care that can be used to treat all fresh water fish. It is perfect for the treatment of hook-holds, sores, lifted scales, The highly active combination of antibacterial and antifungal ingredients in this unique formula penetrates affected areas immediately, going to work reducing infection and assisting in the fishes natural healing process. This means that Intensive Care is ideal for the treatment of all hook-holds, sores, lifted scales, predatory wounds and spawning damage, as well as all general areas of mild infection. As anglers, we always recommend the treatment of all ‘marks’, no matter how small, as a precautionary step to ensure that the fish are in the best possible condition in the future. Intensive care is supplied in a convenient bottle with a pump atomiser spray cap to make application extremely quick and easy. There is 60ml of liquid per bottle. Directions for use:Shake well before use.For all minor cuts and grazes simply spray onto affected areas.For severely infected areas such as deep wounds and ulcers, lightly dry the area before application as this will help the spray penetrate fully.There is no need to retain fish on the bank so treated fish should be returned immediately after use.Wipe nozzle after use (to avoid clogging). **Please avoid spraying the treatment directly onto the fishes gills. Whilst the active ingredients in Intensive Care are perfectly safe, the gill membranes are a very delicate organ and it is best practice to avoid covering them with any treatments or carp care products. This product has been developed in conjunction with the experts at Lower Berryfield Fisheries. Warnings/advice:Keep out of the reach of children and pets.Avoid contact with eyes and do not ingest.The active ingredients in Intensive Care are stain (colour) if excess liquid comes into contact with mats, slings and skin.

Gardner Tackle Gardner Camflex Leadfree 45lb
Gardner Camflex Leadfree 45lb CamFlex Leadfree leader is a superb fast sinking leader material that has been woven using 100% heavy PTFE fibres, so it has the highest possible weight for a non-core leader material. The amazing supple nature means that material will hug the contours of lake bed when it is fished slack, and feels ‘natural’ when a fish brushes against it. The subtle flecked finish of this material blends in superbly, offering excellent rig camouflage in almost any aquatic environment. Thanks to the PTFE fibres used in CamFlex’s construction the colour doesn’t darken dramatically when it is wet, so the shade that you see on the spool is the colour of the leader when it is on the lake bed. The ‘Weedy Green’ is the perfect colour for use whilst fishing amongst a wide variety of pond weeds or blanket weed. Quite simply – it blends in superbly. This shade of green also works really well over pale lake beds, like clean sand and gravel. The Muddy Silt has a darker overall shade, and is the perfect colour for use on lakes that have darker coloured muddy beds and venues where the bottom is covered in dark filamentous algae. The braiding used in CamFlex Leadfree means that it is easy to splice and offers extremely strong and really neat connections between mainline and leader plus joining onto terminal components. CamFlex Leadfree combines a low diameter with an amazing limp, super soft silky feel and outstanding sinking and abrasion properties! Available in 45lb breaking strain Weedy Green or Muddy Silt Diameter: 0.60mm (uncrushed)
