Advanta X5 Flatback 45" / 114cm Brolly
Whether you’re at the bank for a day long match fishing session or you’re sat at the water’s edge coarse fishing for pleasure, chances are that you’ll be fishing in the rain for at least a portion of your day – assuming you’re fishing in the UK, that is! This is why it is always vital to have an umbrella close to hand, to ensure that you can gain some precious shelter from the very worst of the elements. However, when you’re on the bank a bog standard umbrella simply won’t do. Not only will it fail to fully shelter you but you’ll also have to sacrifice an arm to holding the umbrella – something that you’ll want to avoid at all costs. A bona-fide angling umbrella, or brolly, is the only adequate form of protection for you in this kind of bankside scenario, which is why the Advanta team has worked hard to ensure that its Flatback Brolly is up to the job.
The first thing you’ll notice about this brolly, as the name suggests, is its completely flat back. This has been fitted with pegging points, which allow you to secure the rear of this brolly down to the floor. With this flat back, you can ensure that you’re perfectly protected from the very worst of the elements, whether the wind is howling or the rain is bucketing. This ensures that you can enjoy your time on the bank in relative luxury and you’ll be laughing at your neighbours at their pegs or swims who more closely resemble drowned rats than anglers!
As you might expect from a top quality angling umbrella, this brolly also has an exceptionally wide spread. This ensures that it is able to shelter both you and all your tackle, whether you’re sat on your seat box or you’re enjoying the view out from your low chair. After all, keeping your bait dry on the bank until the optimum moment is vital for your angling success, so having a brolly system which can shelter both you and your bait is vital. The central pole of the Advanta Flatback Brolly is fully adjustable. This means that you can modify the height of this brolly to suit your needs – whether you’re sitting up tall or you’re keeping a low profile, you can ensure that you can enjoy the headroom you require. What’s more, the central pole of the brolly has been finished with spike. This ensures that you can firmly position this brolly into the ground, allowing you to make the most of its wind resistance when you really need it.
The Advanta Flatback Brolly is also ideal for use in the warmer summer months, when there isn’t a cloud in the sky. Although spending all day sat in the sun might sound like a dream, personal experience will let you know that after only a couple of hours you’ll be dripping, dehydrated, and desperate for shade. This is where the Advanta Flatback comes in! This will cast a huge shadow over you and your gear, ensuring that you’re perfectly sheltered from the harmful UVA and UVB rays. UV rays don’t just cause burns and other forms of skin damage; they also cause serious tackle degradation. In fact, sunlight is one of the most prevalent causes of tackle damage and countless lines have been weakened due to overexposure to UV light over the years. This is why it is also vital to have a brolly in the summer months as it is when the rain is pouring.
The Advanta Flatback Brolly comes supplied in its very own carry case, for ease of transportation and it is the perfect bankside companion for the dedicated coarse and match angler who wants to enjoy full protection form the worse of the British weather.
