Good Afternoon ladies and gents :)

I wanted to get peoples' views and experiences with Snowbee fly fishing products here in SA.

I had a look at the rods and lines at Kingfisher and they seem to be of a good quality, but a nice box and good performance aren't always the same thing ;)

Please let me know if you have tried any of the products
(I'm mainly referring to freshwater Fly fishing but any reviews are helpful).

Cheers
Mike ::tight:

Snowbee fly fishing products are good - Kingfisher stocks them locally.

Check out: http://www.snowbee.co.uk/fly-fishing/
for more info. UK flyfishers demand quality products.

There are also some bargains to be had in their clearance items, despite the exchange rate. I recently got myself a clearance 5wt Snowbee Prestige Switch fly rod - very happy with it. Their flylines are also nice ...

10123 Snowbee Prestige Switch Rod 10ft 8ins #5 4-pce — £96.33  
http://www.snowbee.co.uk/webshop/fly-fishing/clearance-items/2016-clearance-items/rods/10123-prestige-switch-rod-10ft-8ins-5-4-pce/
This 5wt switch works well with 250gr fly lines (approx. 8 Weight AFTMA).
 
Also check out:
https://cutthroatsgalore.wordpress.com/2013/02/20/trout-switch-rods/
where this Snowbee Switch Rod gets a good review (and a good case is made for using Switch Rods for trout!) …


Also see: https://www.flylineshop.com/
for British made Barrio Fly lines – a very nice quality product at a reasonable price despite the exchange rate. Mike Barrio ships directly to SA - postage free.

I have the Snowbee chest waders for about a year now - been happy with the product thus far.
