for a day get brutal ?

for instance end tackle should easily fit in a small tupper ware box leave any spares in the car in the unlikely event you need them etc as we all take WAY too much gear for a days fishing

How about them brollies with the wing bits ?
I always found a brolly a pain in the rain
Usually mounding my gear in the centre and getting wet myself

I truly believe a 55" brolly is all you need for a day session ? or possibly a popup shelter

maybe anything else is over kill ?

Did your JRC cocoon shelter ever turn up fivenil? I also saw that on amazon and was about to buy when I saw it was from fishdeal.co.uk who have just refunded me for the same shelter that I placed direct order with them for. Missing in post apparently.

My ESP lo pro arrived this morning - well worth the searching and the guys at Homeleigh were really great. Threw in a free groundsheet too. Thanks for the pointer mate.

I have an older korum oval, its quite small but perfect for day fishing and summer nights. You can get a sensible sized bedchair and all the gear (minimalist) for a couple of days under it.

The newer one is the graphite brolly shelter.

i've got a korum 50" brolly, it's very light, the lightest i could find, it keeps me dry when it rains and it's nice and easy to carry

I'll check that one out. I've not seen it before.

I was/am still trying to get hold of an ESP Lo Pro as a light brolly but there are none available anywhere (including Ebay). I messaged ESP and they are bringing out a new one but not until at least later in the year and possibly not even then.

So... (unless someone has one for sale...)

I've been looking at the Sonik brolly and the Wychwood Tactical (and I've read most of the threads on here about brollies). And I can't decide.
