For carp and catfish anglers, spending the night at the water’s edge is a big part of their hobby. When you're not actively fishing, you probably want to get some sleep while you wait for a bite. With the help of bite indicators or a top bell this is very possible these days. A good night's sleep is very important – and you want a nice bed to lie in. The importance of a good bedchair becomes clear when you are out fishing at night more often.
Although a bedchair can sometimes be large and awkward to carry along to the water's edge, it really is an indispensable item for your bivvy. A good bedchair is long enough so that you can rest your entire body on the bed. The width is also important and for many people it is nice if the bedchair is placed well above the ground, so that there is storage space underneath. The weight and ease of setting up the bedchair can be important factors when making your buying decision – you should also consider whether it will fit inside your tent or brolly.
Bedchairs are available in many different models. There are entry-level models that you can buy for a small amount and that are sufficient if you only fish a few nights a year. But do you fish a lot of nights, and do you want to save yourself some backache? Then we recommend you choose a more luxurious model. Many luxury bedchairs on the market are already equipped with a mattress and a sleeping bag that comes with the bedchair. Of course, this sleeping bag is removable so you can wash it, but you can also attach the sleeping bag and fold it into the bedchair. This saves you from having to carry it around again. High quality stretchers can be found on Fishdeal. Do you want a real luxury model of high quality? Take a look at brands like Fox, JRC and Chub.
