July 2020 

After a year and a half of planning, the first batch of Hydrus II boats arrived in the UK where they were shipped out and in some cases hand delivered to their excited owners. 

 With only one or two minor delays the whole operation went according to plan despite the current pandemic the whole world seems to be facing. 

My only regret is not ordering anywhere near enough boats. 

So the Hydrus III will be on order very soon ready to arrive in the spring of 2021.

To secure yours today simply email me at or call the IBF fishing line on 01903 816390.

Myself and Susie were invited by Director Elliot Hasler to help film a scene from the movie Vindication Swim using the Hydrus to get some key shots on the water. Check out the details here

We're now taking pre-orders for the Hydrus III which will be with us in time for Spring 2021.

 January 2021 - Pre-sales of the Hydrus III

What does 2021 have in stall for us in times like these?

One thing's for sure, it's certainly seen a huge rise in people looking in to the leisure industry for activities to spend the summer instead of travelling abroad which has meant sales of The Hydrus blossoming. 

We're taking orders for the Hydrus now throughout the summer so don't hang about, get ordering today to avoid disappointment.


 March 2021 - The Hydrus III arrives

After a long wait at the port because of current conditions causing delays, they are finally here. Now to get them shipped out to some very excited customers.
