Why use a brolly?
Why use a brolly instead of the tradition bivvy you’re asking, well there are numerous situations where a brolly can come in very useful.
Most brollies can virtually fit into any swim, big or small, which is ideal for tight swims, canals and rivers. The Solace is also ideal for quick overnighters and also setting up in the rain because is so quick to set up.
Brollies recently have become very popular in carp fishing because their overall size and weight is very minimal which helps you be mobile if needed.
Packing away quicker can really help you get on the fish, if you spot them on the other side of the lake and you need to move quickly a brolly is ideal.
