After a lifetime of fishing the riverbanks of Kent, in what could be called a traditional way, I decided that the life of the traveling man was called for, so targeting Chub up and down the banks of The Beult, The Medway and The Rother required for me one important item, a lightweight chair. I can, and have, endured most things in pursuit of a catch, but not being able to sit down comfortable has never been one of them.
Now, when reviewing the market for what was available my selection, criteria consisted of the following.
1. Weight and ease of use.
My choice was the Korum lightweight accessory chair, weighing in at a total of 4kg it passed that test enabling me to carry to all part of the River without too much trouble and being light enough not to be a burden on the way home after a long day’s fishing.
Another important feature is the waterproof material, which in wet conditions allows you to wipe and shake the moisture and water from the chair, giving comfort all day.
The second most important feature to me is the adjustable mud feet, enabling the seat to be positioned safely on most riverbanks all four feet adjust giving very good flexibility without the risk of the chair collapsing.
The chair also has the benefit of add on accessories, which enable the angler to customize the chair to meet his or her own requirements.
The material used is firm and to me seems comfortable and will not in the future start to sag, which is something I prefer.
The chair folds away flat and I have adapted my own sling to carry the chair over my shoulder when moving from swim to swim, which carries a little more padding across the shoulder area.
Make no mistake, this is a good roving chair and, with a RRP of £59.99, well worth a look.
