Nash Tackle's sister company Nashbait has been producing premium bait since the 80s, today responsible for such renowned products as Scopex Squid, Citruz, Instant Action and the advanced Cultured® hookbaits.

Zerofit − The World's Warmest Baselayer® − manufactures award−winning products that are changing the game for anglers. Available in sizes from XS−3XL, the heartbeat of the Zerofit brand is the Heatrub Ultimate Baselayer which has been independently tested at the Boken Institute in Osaka and proven to be five times warmer than a standard baselayer.
The Heatrub Ultimate recorded a Heat Retention Rating of 0.78; a standard product would have a rating of between 0.1 to 0.14, while a jumper would typically have a rating of 0.3. The Ultimate performs best in a temperature range of −10 Celsius throught to 10 Celsius, so no matter the conditions, wearers will be toasty warm.
Innovative 'Heat Threads' positioned on the inside of the garment gently rub against your skin to create positive warmth across your body, and this technology also retains the heat. A standard baselayer traps body heat between your skin and the material, so it takes a little time before you feel the benefits. With Zerofit, five separate fabrics, along with a patented knitting process, create instant warmth as soon as you pull it on. While other brands rely on compression for heat, Zerofit's unique fabric mix means you don't need the tightness in order for it to work, making it super comfortable too.

Not a day goes by without tens of thousands of anglers across the globe going fishing armed with a variety of products from the Fox International portfolio.
The company originates from Essex, UK, where Cliff Fox launched his first ever Fox International angling product − a metal ruler showing size limits of certain species of fish caught in UK matches (when anglers had to fish to a set of size limit rules). It sold well and encouraged Cliff to expand into other products from his small, rented workshop in Hainault.
The Fox portfolio of brands has a number of flagship products that help to reinforce a formidable reputation for innovation and quality. In the carp market, items such as Micron bite alarms, Flatliner bedchairs, Edges accessories, Frontier Bedchairs, 12000XC reels and Rapide PVA bag systems have all contributed to Fox being widely regarded as 'the brand' to own.
