Seems like one low shelter recently released is not selling very well already reduced at total angling in Shrewsbury to £599.99 from the £679.99rrp

100%

I love that feeling of when you first cast your rods out all your kits away ready for the session ahead and you sit back and relax.

Then wake up next day puzzled

I just think thereís that much choice that thereís no need to be uncomfortable. Itís like some see fishing as a military exercise. I take what kit I need to be comfortable not to make do. I want to enjoy my time on the bank not suffer or wish I had taken something.

Doesn't matter if they do, there's something on the market for everyone. We've never had such a great choice of kit as we do these days, some would do well to remember that. Used to be if you want a bivvy then you had a brolly and nash wrap as that was all their was pretty much

My job means Iím dashing about all day, job to job, in between on the phone, evenings doing invoices, six days a week for six months of the year, sometimes seven days a week. When I go fishing I want to sit on my fat lazy arse.

This might have a bearing on why I never catch feck all.

I agree. I use the shelter to sleep. My hours awake are spent fishing I.e. looking for, and attempting to catch carp.

But in fairness we all go for different reasons and some guys enjoy chilling in the bivvy I guess.

Surely people canít spend that much time under a bivvy / shelter that height plays a massive part. Iím 6.0ft use a pram hood Jrc peaked defender and have zero issues. Same with the Korum mk2 day shelter or the fast and light.

If itís dry then sit in the door way or outside to get a better view of the lake. So many seem to turn up cast out and hide for 24hrs.

If you donít like low shelters buy a taller version or taller bivvy. Donít see the big issue.

Why not just get a 6x6ft tarp and slant it over head as a rain cover if heights really that much of an issue.

It's all a vicious circle. You get a bivvy with a good height at the front, you pitch it on sloping downwards ground, you then cannot see out the front properly. You buy a lower bed, you can then see out the front, but then the "low space saving" bed is that low, you cannot store anything substantial underneath it and also it becomes a struggle to get out of when your getting on a bit. You might even buy a lower profile bivvy to match the low bed, but then you have to duck as you try and get out the door fast, plus once again, sloping ground will make the front too low. To aid getting out of a low bivvy, I always position my water container to the right hand side of the door so I can use the handle to help me up and steady myself.

Based on the theme, how long down the line will it be before anglers complain about 9' and 10' rods being to short and can they be made a bit longer.
