Bentley’s In Car Tackle Box & Rod set – A Snip At Just £80K

So you’ve rocked up to your local Bentley dealer, had a quick spin in the new Bentayga and decided that the £160K, 600BHP, 12-Cylinder, twin turbo=charged 4X4 is the perfect motor for you to take your mates out for a days fishing.

But wait, “fishing” the sales person says. “Did I hear you say fishing”.

Before you know it, you’re staring at the “extras” catalogue and there, in front of you is… Probably the most luxurious, and definitely most expensive in-car tackle box and fishing set ever.

Open the boot, and attached underneath the car’s parcel shelf are four tubes trimmed in saddle leather with linen cross stitching. They’re a perfect stow for four handmade rods and sit right above the fly fishing kit’s party piece.

It’s a huge, luxurious tackle box kitted out with three different units – a master tackle station, a refreshments case and a waterproof stowage trunk for waders and boots.

Inside the tackle station, you’ll find a comprehensive stock of kit tucked away in a burr walnut veneered drawer. Tools like a fly-tying vice are included, as well as a selection of cottons, hooks and feathers. Underneath the drawer are four reel cases, machined from solid aluminium and trimmed in saddle leather.

The refreshment cabinet contains three metal flasks and a set of fine-china tableware. There’s also a food storage compartment. The box can be removed from the boot and used as a perch to sit on.

Alongside is a stowage trunk for wet waders and boots, lined with hardwearing neoprene to keep wet and dirty items in a waterproof environment. The whole lot can be removed from the boot if you need the space for other country pursuits, which slides out.

A pair of landing nets kept in leather-trimmed side pockets are thrown in, as is a dehumidifying system, so the SUV’s posh interior isn’t tainted by the smell of fish. Further protection comes in the form of a waterproof boot floor and rear-sill protection covers.

However, there is one small, tiny little snag with this fishing marvel. If you want it, it will set you back a cool £80,000. Yes, for half of the price of the car you just bought, you can have some fishing gear thrown in.

Fortunately, you’re not much of a fly fisherman and you convince the sales guy that “Its not the price, there just simply isn’t enough room for 5 rods, a bivvy, stove and bedchair”…. Then you beat a hast retreat and pick up a 2nd hand Jeep Cherokee Classic for two grand.
Phew, that was close
