The Shimano Aero concept harnesses the power of Shimano's strong engineering background and Japanese roots to make a unique high performance reel design.
Three reels have been introduced under the Aero concept two of the reels were designed for the British market and one for the USA market. The British reels were developed for the Match angler and one for Feeder fishing the USA reel for spinning considering the uses to which they are to be put.
The requirements of modern match fishing are met with the large diameter spool which makes casting easier and the front drag delivers performance when playing fish. All the Shimano Aero models have X-ship engineering which provides smooth and efficient power transfer from the handle even when under heavy stress.
Fishing Republic dates back to 1985 when the company’s founder and Executive Director, Steve Gross, established a business selling fishing flies and fly tying materials to fishing tackle wholesalers. In 2005, Fishing Republic opened our first store in Barnsley. Since then the company has grown to be the Largest Fishing Tackle retailer in the UK.
With the extensive angling knowledge within our company and the exceptional customer service we offer both in store and online, it’s clear to see why Fishing Republic is Number 1.
