Carp fishing can be very active, but many anglers prefer static carp fishing. With this type of fishing, it can sometimes take a long time before you get a bite, so it's important that you're comfortable while you wait. A good and comfortable carp chair can be a vital part of your fishing set-up. At night you will be in your bivvy, lying on your bedchair, but for the hours that you spend on the waterfront during the day, a good fishing chair is important. A good carp chair not only offers a comfortable place to sit but will also have many other important properties too. Many have wide mud feet so the chair can be placed on any surface and many also have adjustable heights.
Carp chairs are widely available, almost every brand that provides carp fishing equipment has several models in its range – the choice is huge! There are lightweight fishing chairs that are easy to take with you when you're strolling around, fishing actively with a pencil float, but there are also luxury models that are ideal for long, static fishing sessions – as if you were sitting on a throne at the water's edge! The seats of the well-known carp brand Fox are very popular and offer a very good quality for a nice price. Other brands that are very strong in the field of carp chairs include JRC, NGT and Ultimate.
When you are looking for a suitable carp chair, it is very important that you know what you are looking for. As with all fishing tackle, the choice is pretty big. You can choose a chair with or without an adjustable backrest, this can make the difference if you suffer with any kind of back problems. A chair with armrests is often slightly more expensive than a chair without, but in practice you will see that it is a fine addition. Whatever you are looking for: there is a suitable chair for every fisherman on the market.
