Been there, done that. It's not good.

The first time I did it, I'd attached the brolly to the box, and then decided to nip round the back and pin down the ropes. As I pulled the ropes, I tipped the whole lot over dragging it into the water. The second time, I stood up to sort out my trouser tackle and my box disappeared from under me getting dragged several feet back.

I like the tip about setting up the brolly pole level with the front of your box. Thats never clicked with me before Wondered why everything behind me was dry, but I could always see the sky if I looked up. 1 + 1 doesn't always equal 2.

I have 2 umbrellas. One is a 50 inch nubrollie that I use for short sessions. For extra stability I have 2 storm poles and guy ropes. Secondly I have a Nash Oval Plus that I use for summer overnighters and that is really stable.

I don't put the brolley pole at the front - it's at one side or the other (depending which way the winds blowing)

Yep im with you now,i can see that would work on wide swims, often there is little space either side and the behind box position is the best.

Ive always thought the brolley attached to the seatbox arm was asking for trouble, just got off Ebay the brolley spike that you can push into the ground and have your brolley pole slide into the spike tube and lock in position.

Lets face it big round sail like objects and windy days just dont mix, but better to be dry than sitting out in your waterproofs while you sit in a puddle !!

A brolly is a waste of time.... get in the way ! to much trouble setting it up right and besides " your waterproof" the rain stops at the skin.
I once attached a brolly to me seatbox.... got up and the wind had the lot in the canal and I got soaked rescuing it....... not worth the pain.

Just got the new Leeda Fibrelite Nubrollie 50" and with removable pole that can be re-positioned at the back.

Has a good long removable ground spike ( about 40" long ) and the material is heavy duty.

Better quality than the Leeda 2XL stuff but then again it did cost 39.00

At least im sorted, thanks to Climax Tackle !!

Just bought a Keenets lite-shield umbrella, as the name implies it is very light, much easier to carry and doesn't seem to be affected by the wind as much as the old heavyweight brollies. Very pleased with it.

The latest IYCF mentions a new product called the Korum Day Shelter - pramhood style, can't blow inside out, lightweight and easy to erect, covers "a Dad and lad and all their tackle" @59.99 - sounds good!

Off to Sheffield at the weekend to watch Ricky Hatton, before the fight starts im going to shoot down to Bennetts of Sheffield to view a few umbrellas as i still have not purchased a new one yet,with this cold i think i better buy a one piece suit fleece lined (wooly bear) whilst im there!!!!!

Has anybody been there before ?

I know they are a bit pricey but surely with all the stuff they sell , the place must be massive...

anybody recommend anymore tackle shops to go & view around the North-West area as me & my mate are willing to travel to eventually find a solution to this problem.

i mentioned the brolly i bought from vale royal angling for 35 quid in a previous post on brollys.i still have not used it as i dont like brollys at all,however i am confident that it will do for me.
WILLOW,you say you have yet to see anyone fish a match and not use i brolly when it is lashing down,i dont use one,ask anyone that knows me.but as i get older i get wiser,i am now using an ex-army gore tex poncho that suits me fine. and as for keeping my bait dry i just use an angling times groundbait carrier upside down as a rain hood over my bait boxes(one for each box)i am not a slave to fashion, and i dont dissolve in the wet.
regards 2ts
