Sage Core Rod & Response Life Jacket

AFTA 2022 – Best fly fishing product: Sage R8 Core Rod

JM GILLIES R8 Core is focussed on maximum versatility and applies new revolutionary R8 material technology through our forward-thinking lens of what we’re seeing out on the water – where one rod needs to show even greater range.

At its core, R8 Core traces a direct lineage to Sage’s multi-application fast action vision, one shaped by the fishing evolutions happening all around us – from habitats we stalk and waters we frequent, to the flies we fish and the diversity of species we now target.

Coming in a range from 3wt to 9wt, with a variety of lengths from 8’6” to 10’, there’s sure to be a model to fit the core needs of every freshwater angler.


AFTA 2022 – Best watersport and diving accessory: Response SB1 Red Neoprene Life Jacket

JM GILLIES is proud to introduce its range of personal flotation devices manufactured and designed to the latest standards.

Response by Life Jacket Solutions have spent many months designing and putting together our new range, working alongside JM Gillies.



It was over 93 years ago when John Malcolm Gillies began servicing the fishing tackle industry to satisfy the needs of the fishing public with local hand tied trout flies. From those humble beginnings J.M.Gillies evolved and began to distribute fly fishing tackle before it moved into general fishing tackle, firearms and other sporting goods.

JM Gillies Agencies continue to offer the highest quality, innovative and most sought after brands of fishing tackle and lures designed in Australia and selling throughout the world and we are proud to be 100% Australian owned.

In addition to the lure ranges, JM Gillies represent many other ranges of tackle, storage and accessories from premium brands such as Maxima, Fins, Scotty, Rio, Redington, Sage and many other sought after brands of quality fishing tackle to suit the needs of all anglers.
