As a company of committed carp anglers, we understand that angling is as much as waiting game as it is a skill sport. We don’t know about you but we prefer to do our waiting in comfort, relaxing back in a purpose designed angling chair rather than standing around on the bank for hours waiting for action. As much as it is very pleasant to be sat on the bankside for a couple of hours on a sunny day – with just the grass underneath you as cushioning – any angler who has been down on the lake for more than a few hours knows that something a little more robust is required! That’s why we have collected a stellar range of fishing chairs that will keep you comfortable on the bank for hours on end. Long gone are the days of numb bums and stiff backs thanks to our range of premier chairs, as all of our chairs are designed with anglers in mind and have been built to offer you the support you need to enjoy life at the water’s edge. We also have a huge variety of chairs for use across the carp fishing discipline, so whether you want a back support for your bedchair, a chair with independently height adjustable legs, or a low profile outfit for all your most mobile angling, we have the chair for you.

We only ever stock products from the biggest and best respected brands in the industry, to ensure that no matter which of our products you choose you’re going to be getting the perfect tool for you. That’s why you’ll see names like Fox, Trakker, and Nash in our stellar collection of chairs for carp fishing. As loyal carpers ourselves, we’ve even created our own range of angling chairs which have been especially designed with carp fishing in mind. Advanta is the brand we’re proud to call our own, and all the chairs and bedchair buddies in our range are top quality products that offer exceptional value for money. Angling Direct aims to make carp fishing accessible to all anglers, regardless of experience or financial situation. That’s why our chairs come in at a range of budgets, so whether you’re looking for your first dedicated angling chair or are in the market for an upgraded chair that offers indulgent luxury on the bankside, we have the chair for you.
Although all the chairs in our collection are world class products that we proudly use on the bank ourselves, there are a couple of things that you ought to bear in mind when you’re making your purchase in order to ensure that you’re getting the perfect carp fishing chair for your needs. Firstly, you’ll want to consider what you’re going to be using the chair for, as this will determine the features which are most or least important to you. For example, the weight of the chair is important regardless of use but it is particularly important for the mobile angler. If you’re someone who likes to be able to pack up and move at a moments notice then the last thing you want is to have a weighty chair which could potentially hinder your process around the bank. On the other hand, a weightier chair is probably going to be less important for the long session angler, as you’re likely to only be carrying it twice during your session – once on the way down to the bank and once on the way back again. The weight of your chair can have multiple contributing factors – including the size of the chair, the frame material, and the type of padding. For the longer session angler, any one of these factors might outweigh the issue of weight. This is why it is vital to figure out what you’re most often going to be using your chair for before you start to whittle down our impressive selection.
When it comes to the frame of your chair, the option you’re most likely to be faced with is aluminium. Both durable and lightweight, aluminium is incredibly popular among all the top end brands and you’ll see it used across the angling industry – from reels right the way through to bedchairs. Some of the carp chairs in our range also have additional steel supporting bars. These are slightly heavier than aluminium but they are also significantly more robust, improving the weight bearing capacity of the chair and making it ideal for the bigger angler. Some of the chairs in our range will come with integrated armrests. These are perfect for the long session angler who is going to be spending an extended period of time at the bank, as it allows you somewhere to rest your tired arms between huge ripping takes. Armrests add additional weight to your chair but they also add that touch of luxury which doesn’t go amiss when you’re spending several days in a row on the bankside.
The next thing that you’ll want to consider when you’re looking at the frame of your chair is the legs. Having legs which you can adjust independently of one another is imperative and it really is the key to your bankside comfort. It doesn’t matter who padded your seat it or how supportive your chair back is – if you don’t have a chair which is level on the bank you are going to end up with even worse aches and pains than you had before you invested in your new carp chair. After all, no bankside is ever going to be completely level and even the neatest constructed swim with have its lumps, bumps, and changes in terrain. Independently adjustable legs have been designed to combat that, as they allow you to accommodate for any changes in the slope of your swim. Most of the carp fishing chairs in our range come fitted with swivel mud feet, too. These are an additional stabilising feature and they self-adjust depending on the terrain to ensure that you can always enjoy a flat and stable base for all your carp fishing. It’s here that you’ll want to decide between a low chair and a standard day chair, too. Low chairs are, as the name suggests, shorter in the leg section (and usually in the back, too) and they are designed for fishing from secret and secluded swims – as well as for day fishing from a brolly or open fronted shelter, thanks to their improved head clearance.
The final thing you’ll want to consider in terms of the frame of your chair is whether or not it reclines. Reclining fishing chairs are becoming increasing popular with longer session anglers as it allows you to modify your back support to suit your needs. If you’re looking for a carp recliner, then you’ll notice that most recline via the use of a cam-wheel or hand-wheel, rather than by lifting the arms as you would with traditional deck or camping chairs. This allows you to recline with incredible precision – perfect for those late evenings’ carp fishing.
After you’ve decided on the sort of frame you want, you can finally turn to the type of padding that you’re after. The padding on our carp fishing chairs varies from traditional style foam all the way through to top-end memory foam, and each different foam type has its benefits. Traditional foam offers a good level of padding and it is incredibly lightweight. This means that manufactures can double it up to give you an extra level of padding without worrying about adding additional weight to the chair. You’ll find that some of our chairs feature additional padding in key areas to help support your back, for example. If you’re a mobile angler who doesn’t want to sacrifice comfort for agility, then a traditionally padded chair will probably the route you’ll go down. Memory foam, on the other had, has been designed to give you ergonomic support where you need it the most. As the name suggests, this foam moulds to your body over a period of time, basically leaving you with a custom chair which has been padded with your needs in mind. If you’re someone who suffers from back problems or you’re someone who is going to be spending many hours sat on the bank then a memory foam chair is the perfect option for you.
Another of the options in our carp chairs collection is our range of bedchair buddies. As the name suggests, these carp fishing buddy chairs have been designed to sit across your bedchair, transforming it into a fully back angling seat. These are ultra-lightweight chair options which are ideal for the angler who likes to enjoy a quick overnighter, as it ensures that you can still enjoy all the back support that you require in the day time whilst also keeping the overall weight of your tackle to a minimum. These buddy carp fishing chairs are also ideal for the social angler, who is regularly joined in their swim by their friends and family members. If you’re someone who often has a friend or relative join you on the bank for a cuppa but you don’t want to sacrifice your seat, a bedchair buddy is an excellent alternative. Most of the bedchair buddies in our range can also be used as low chairs, giving you an excellent lightweight seating option for your companion. In this way, the chair can literally be a seat for your carp buddy!
