Already U.K. anglers ‘in the know’ are aware of the fantastic track record of Westin products that set a benchmark in quality and effectiveness. We are at the beginning of what I predict will be a tremendous success-story for the brand in the U.K., mirroring what has already been achieved in many other countries.”
