Fishing with Bentley

Section:

Bentley 4×4 equipped with fly fishing kit by Mulliner to be exhibited at The London Fly Fishing Fair

Designed with the gentleman angler in mind, what some might call a “casting brake” is to be exhibited by Bentley at the first London Fly Fishing Fair this week.

Priced far higher than the standard £135,000 ($164,000, €155,000 or درهم 603,000) base model Bentley Bentayga at around £280,000 ($340,000, €322,000 or درهم 1.25 million), the Mulliner Fly Fishing adapted version on show comes with a master tackle station, a refreshment case and a waterproof wader stowage trunk. It has tubes for four rods and a pair of landing nets can be stored in a hard pocket in the side of the boot.

Aside from the specially adapted Bentley, Marina Gibson – pictured here departing from a slightly more modest means of transport – will add some glamour to the first London Fly Fishing Fair

Of the car, which is to be exhibited by Mayfair dealers Jack Barclay, John Kelley, co-founder of The London Fly Fishing Fair, remarked:

“This is an iconic development in the fishing industry. It allows the keen angler to travel in comfort and in style. We are proud to be having this vehicle be a part of our fair, where we hope to entice a diverse community of fly fishers to engage in our event”.

Fly fishing personalities including rising star Marina Gibson and longstanding favourite Charles Jardine will be present at the fair and amongst over 70 exhibitors will be the Atlantic Salmon Trust, the BASC and Orvis.

The London Fly Fishing Fair is to be held on the 10th and 11th March at The Business Design Centre, 52 Upper Street, Islington, London, N1 0QH. Tickets cost £15 per person with under entry for those under 15 free.

  1. What an appallingly vulgar idea!
    The man with the rod looks Arab. I have yet to meet an Arab fly fisher.
    Seriously, it’s the sort of car some vulgar and very common parvenu property developer might buy. It’s redolent of the Holland and Holland Range Rover!

    • A very expensive fishing cart and a little out of the league of a pensioner like me.

      Peter, dear, the man does not look Arabic but there’s nothing wrong with Arabic men going fishing as much as there’s nothing wrong with white men going fishing. Wasn’t there a film called “Salmon Fishing in the Yemen” or something similar?
