One of the best things about Britain is its coastline. With British waters spanning a broad temperature range, those who are into sea fishing, and able to travel around the country, can enjoy a vast array of fish species, whether you’re just out for sea angling, or looking for something fresh and tasty for dinner. There’s nothing better than going on holiday to a UK coastal town; without the hassle and stress of airports, customs, exchanging currency, and a potential foreign language to learn, you can drive into town, head straight for the beach, get your rods out and go, all before checking in to your accommodation. Fresh air, the revitalising tang of salt water spray, the wind in your hair, and the challenge of chasing truly wild fish: that’s got to be the definition of a good start to any holiday.
Being typically larger than regular angling rods, the better to withstand the demands of doing battle with lively, wild, sea fish, and handle the much rougher, faster movement of water, transporting your sea fishing rods can be a hassle. It’s not uncommon to see people walking down to the beach or pier head simply carrying their made-up rods as they are. While carrying a rod through the town centre may be fine for locals, if you’re having to travel to the coast, you’re going to want to make sure your rods are secure and protected, and for that you need a good-quality rod holdall that’s designed and built to not only accommodate the larger size of a sea rod, but also withstand exposure to corrosive coastal air, which as well as being much more damp than you might be used to, also carries small particles of salt with it. Sea air can quickly rot fabric that’s regularly exposed to it, so you need to make sure your rod holdall is designed to withstand this particular kind of wear and tear.
The Advanta Sea Rod Holdall is more than up to the challenge of transporting the larger sea rods, and surviving the damage salt water and sea air can hand out. At 6ft 9”, it can be used for three section rods, as well as comfortably accommodating the standard two-section sea fishing rod. Its generous size also easily accommodates long-distance carp rods, making it the ideal purchase for those who fish ‘home and away’; carp as a regular angler, with sea fishing over Bank Holiday long weekends.
If you’re fishing from the shore, you’ll most likely be using a beach rest, as the action won’t be all that lively, giving you plenty of down time. This sea fishing holdall includes a pocket for your beach rest or fishing umbrella, ensuring that whatever the weather’s doing, you can easily get your rod down to the beach, and see what’s running. With a padded shoulder strap, carrying your rod from the car park (which can often be some distance from the beach itself) is easy and comfortable.
A bright, durable addition to a growing range, this practical, durable, and stylish holdall proves that Advanta, a young emerging brand established by fishing’s leading retailer, Angling Direct, in 2011, isn’t just about carp, and is committed to meeting the needs of the fishing community as a whole; whether you’re chasing cod at the local lake under a warm blue sky, or running with the cod off a windswept shore, there’s something to meet your fishing needs.
With the classic, vivid red trim that is a recognisable element of the Advanta and Angling Direct brands, this sea fishing holdall will blend seamlessly with other angling products from across the Advanta range.
