Oh, don't put anything pushing against right at the front centre of the barrow bag, or you can rub the barrow bag against the wheel, which can put a hole in the barrow bag.

This is common to many barrows, not just the Porterlite❗️😉

OK, I'm convinced - Barrow it is! I'll try and get the Poterlite. Cheers. Appreciate it.

Carp Porterlite, I agree this is probably the best barrow out there.
It is an easy take apart job, and mine is left in the back of the car, frame folded down, handles and wheel removed.

In the barrow bag I put my 5litre water bottle, a bucket of dog food, and bait bucket. The is also usually some spare bivvy pegs and a spare gas canister in there as well, oh and a book or two and my ipad.

I open my bedchair legs and put that on top at the front, with the open legs as side bars. My dogs unhooking mat (bed) and chair are rested at the back across the handles. On top of that I put my tackle box, my large RH Unhooking mat/cradle which doubles as a carryall, rucksack and then my rod holdall.
I use Sky's long lead as a strap to keep everything in place.

I used a trolley for years with my Shakespeare seat box etc, used my bicycle as well all carp fishing 3 rods Bivvy bedchair cooking gear
etc


A trolly isnít much smaller when broken down the two wheels are similar in size the the one of a barrow. The height of the trollies frame when folded up is similar however the barrow from would take up twice the room in its folder up foot print.

You can get bigger barrows as well

The benefits are huge, you can load more gear on and your rods and push rather than drag the barrow making it a far more pleasant (less painful) exercise.

Do a search on here for the Fox explorer barrow they made two versions and people where very happy with them. They are designed similarly to the Prestige low loader which was my first barrow and a friend has it now the low centre of gravity was superb and I could pile it high.

I now use an Avid Transit X another very well made and designed barrow.

Loading a barrow correctly is important so bear that in mind, heavy items low down central and spread the load around the wheel and evenly on both sides.

Best of luck

HI, I've fished for years, but only recently made the step in to carp fishing - which definitely requires more gear! I don't really have storage space for a barrow at home, I look at trolleys and think they would do the job for me and part of the reason they're not so popular is simply that people opt for a barrow because everyone else opts for a barrow. Are trolleys any good for the averag carper? I know the trolley will break down in to smaller parts, but I'm thinking that why go in to all that fuss when a trolley will just fold open and you're done? And I appreciate some people wouldn't get all their gear on a trolley. I appreciate your time.
