If you fish for carp at night, you need a carp bivvy to spend the night in. A bivvy, also sometimes called a carp tent, is almost indispensable when you want to sleep on the waterfront. A good bivvy ensures that you can sleep well and stay dry and offers extra warmth in the times of the year when it's a bit colder. A bivvy is always quick to set up and easy to take with you, after all, many carp anglers have to travel long distances to get to their swim. A bivvy is often delivered in a green colour, but there are also bivvies that have a camouflage print to make you even less conspicuous on the waterfront.
A bivvy offers enough space for your bedchair and the rest of your carp fishing gear. Think of your cooking gear, fishing bag or carryall, a stove and for example your buckets with boilies. You can choose a one-person bivvy, which is a good choice when you often fish short sessions on your own. If you fish for longer sessions or want to spend the night in the tent with a fishing buddy, it's best to choose a two-person bivvy. Therefore, the bivvy is also called a one-man or two-man bivvy. A bivvy is always supplied with pegs and, more often than not, with an overwrap a winterskin is also sometimes available.
A good carp tent is spacious and easy to set up. The tent is compact and easy to store and transport. The bivvy is equipped with a system of quick zips so that when a fish takes your bait, you can immediately get behind your rodpod. The bivvy is just the tent and often you have more wishes when you fish for carp for a long session. There are several clever items for this. A bivvy table is a good example. Also, a bivvy light, bivvy alarm, a set of cooking equipment and a headlamp are indispensable when you go night fishing with the bivvy.
