Anyone who fishes natural venues at this time of year might find one of these rakes a worthy and useful companion.
They are made by Surrey angler Lee Taylor and can be customised to suit your needs.
The standard size is 30cm long with 3ins spikes, making it more than effective for clearing out a swim in no time at all.
The strong metal build and anti-rust paint should see this weed rake last you a lifetime.
Available direct from Lee via his Facebook page TheGudgeonsGadgets and from Cheam Angling in Surrey.
Price: £26.50 including postage
