Beach Shelter Advice Taken!

Post by mulletover »

Decided to go with advice and bought The " Igloo" down at Brazils in Dover as they had it on special offer. Great service in that shop and is now my tackle shop of chioce down there.
Tried the shelter out last night, goes up in seconds, very sturdy. A lot roomie than I was expecting as well
Good bit of kit, and thanks for the advice

you wont go far wrong with the igloo. i have friends that have the buddy`s & used to have one myself, but now i find the igloo just a bit more practical.
the fact that it rolls up straight, albeit a little long, is a godsend i find.

I,ve used all the tackle shops on that street in Dover and just found Brazils gave the best service by a mile, just stuff like he remembers my name which makes it feel like you spending money there matters to them and they appreciate it.

Sorry Tinny, I was kind of at the Deal meet however I went to Deal having not read it was at Sandown. Pretty stupid of me as I hadnt read the whole post on the Thames side explaining the postcode. I fished from 3.30 til about 8 and no one turned up so I packed up and had a little drive up and down the beach but didnt go as far as Sandown. I had one phone no for one of the thames guys but alas it was on my old phone indoors.
Not sure about the Orford meet as its a fair way from here but I'll see how it goes nearer the time.

Tried out the shelter at Deal,, seemed a bit excessive considering the weather when I got there was fine. After an hour or so the haevens opened and I was very happy I'd put it up!!!

Hi Mulletover,

Was that the Salt Rod Holdall (adjustable to 2 different lengths) or the Salt Quiver? Either way, it looks as though it could be just what I am looking for.

Cheers, Geoff :D :D :D

Hi Geoff,
It has a section that unzips to extend it about another foot, the shelter's pretty long rolled up so it needed a long bag, again I thought the bag was pretty good for the price. It's not a massive diameter, 3 rods , shelter and rest is a squeeze but they do fit plus a section on the outside with velcro straps which the shelter would go in if you needed more rods inside.

Regards
Martin

Hi Martin,

Thanks very much for that - it has helped me to make up my mind to ask Santa for the Salt Holdall. The adverts in the fishing magazines don't give enough detail regarding capacity etc., so it is good to hear from someone with first hand experience - many thanks.

Cheers, Geoff :D :D :D
