Choosing A Carp Brolly

These days, your existing brolly can be converted into a ‘brolly system’ by purchasing an overwrap to bring it in line with the characteristics of a bivvy.

Now, we’re not here to argue about whether to choose a brolly or bivvy, but rather to suggest suitable rollies styled for you.

Why a Brolly?

  1. Super quick and easy to erect (most of them anyway!)
  2. Perfect for mobile anglers
  3. Very portable and easy to transport
  4. Can be upgraded with an overwrap for bad weather or cooler conditions
  5. Can be more open than a bivvy
  6. Great day shelters
  7. Incredibly versatile!

If you’re interested in buying a carp brolly suitable for you, then read on as we discuss the benefits and features in my guide of the best carp brolly.

Keeping with a very traditional brolly shape, whose name suggests, is perfect for overnight sessions.

Part of the popular ‘Mission’ series, there are plenty of extra features to keep anglers interested.

Its very easy to setup by simply pushing the centre up (like you would an ordinary umbrella) and then making any adjustments to straighten everything out and place where you want it to sit.

All that’s left to do is to peg down the rear using the two heavy duty pegs, screw in the storm poles and you’re all set!

Daiwa Mission Shelter

There is plenty of room for a bedchair (the Daiwa Mission Bedchair fits beautifully!), as well as all your gear that can be stored at the back.

If you’re on just a day session, there is bags of room to place your carp chair neatly inside to stay dry.

The side panels really help keep sidewinds at bay or passing rains showers where you just want to stay dry for a while.

There are two central storm poles to the front that keeps the shape really well and prevents whipping winds from carrying the brolly off!

To further enhance the protection and stability, there are two storm caps located towards the sides which could be used with two further storm poles if required.

If the weather is not looking to good on your next fishing outing, there is an additional overwrap that you can buy to turn this into a full brolly system.

Finally, this carp brolly is supplied with a groundsheet to keep moisture and debris out and your luggage dry.

This is the best carp brolly I can find that is great value, versatile and suited to beginners who want to get out fishing as soon as possible.

  • 5,000 Hydrostatic Head

Last update on 2019-09-15 / Affiliate links / Images from Amazon Product Advertising API

An affordable entry level brolly system that is very stable and makes an ideal bankside shelter.

At 60 inches, its very spacious inside (plenty room for a bedchair and your tackle), whilst offering great protection during bad weather conditions.

The seams are all taped, and the storm wings and drain system minimise any build up of water that can sometimes happen with other brollys or bivvies.

Its very easy and smooth to setup, and once erected, it really does look like an expensive brolly system that isn’t going to get swept away!

It can be pegged out at multiple pegging points, which is useful when fishing on uneven terrain, with the heavy duty ‘T’ pegs providing excellent grip on most surfaces.

Other features of the JRC defender is the rod straps which allow you to rest your rods securely against the front whilst you bait up or replace your rigs.

The wide rolled up entrance (complete with mozzy panel) gives you a good view of your swim at all times.

Available in a portable carry case, making it easy to move around the lake.

Again, this is another carp brolly that can be converted with an overwrap which is available.

This will minimise condensation in cooler weather, and gives you that extra  bit of insulation.

Trakker seem to up their game when it comes to making reliable fishing shelters – and the Tempest Brolly V2 is no exception!

Mega strong, easy-to-use and very quick to put up and take down, it’s packed full of features carp anglers crave.

Trakker Tempest Brolly Insect Panel

You’ve a choice of not one, but two infill panels, both of which can be fully zipped into the front.

This really boosts your options, especially with the all the extra add-ons that can be purchased.

These include a utility front, skull cap, insect panel, overwrap and groundsheet!

Moving onto the rib construction, and the frame, like its predecessor, really maximises space.

This is due to the external ring system (rather than internal on other brands).

The waterproof material has also been upgraded.

Trakker have done this by converting to a 10,000mm hydrostatic head together with a rejuvenated block design.

The Tempest Brolly V2 has anti-twist poles, which means they won’t turn when the weather turns nasty.

Overall, Trakker have provided us anglers with a simple, back-to-basics brolly that’s packed full of features, with the Tempest range continuing to impress.

Did we mention how lightweight it is?
