    Default Best bits of gear of the last year or so

    For me it has to be

    My tempest brolly .....just so easy and light, roomy too

    Nash dwarf 6ft 2lb test with bp 4 reel. I use this every week from stalking, surface fishing, spinning for perch and on the river for chub and barbel

    Ridge monkey small pan. I mainly use this now on the bank and even in the house for the family.

    Others things like hooks/line/bait are all the same for me really. Those new mainline tigers are good and still fresh after being open a month.

    First impressions of the esp chod gripper hook are good and also have the sticky krill floater to give a good go over the next few weeks

    Have my eye on the new ridgemonkey light so any views on that would be good
    live life well

    The rm light is very good. As is the headtorch. Quick to charge. Both lightweight. And both last a long long time

    Total Camo wader bag - a simple waterproof bag for carrying your waders in, which has a second set of handles on the base, so you can put it over your waders when leaving them next to the rods...

    For me, it has to be the tracker ESL bedchair, best I've ever had, going back to the first fox KM bedchair,
    And also the tracker tempest composite bivvy, again one of the best I've had
    Seams to be plenty of room, without seaming to take up much ground space
    Just hope it last a good bit of time

    I second the explorer barrow best barrow I have ever owned. Well its only the second one, the first being the original Carporter and only replaced it as a leg went missing following a house move.

    Discovery CCX one night stand bivvy from Angling Direct. I have done 40 nights in this now this summer and its stood up to everything. Its now a bit battered and has the odd hole but thats because of the environment I am fishing in. For 200 its a bargin and equally as good as bivvys three times the price. Its slightly bigger than an Aqua Atom but had a peak which although annoying at first is a god send now I am used to it. Will be getting another once this one dies.

    Crimping set. (I went for Korda). Was unsure about reliability but so far it has been excellent and combi rigs and booms are a million times easier.
