As a British company constructed of avid carp anglers, we know exactly how fickle the Great British weather can be. What starts out as a beautiful day could soon turn dank and drizzly. Not ones to let a spot (or two) of rain get in the way of a perfectly good day’s fishing, we always have an umbrella with us on the bank. That’s why we stock a whole host of umbrellas and brolly systems on our Angling Direct site, so you never again need to let a touch of precipitation stop play on the bank.
Why is a fishing umbrella important?
For short session carp anglers, either in the sun or rain, you need a brolly for protection from the elements that can house yourself, bait and tackle. Umbrellas can be attached to your chair or spikes in the ground leaving your hands free and taking up less space than a shelter.
What should I look for in a carp brolly?
All of our carp fishing brollies come with a range of features that are worth considering when it comes to narrowing down the best option for your bankside shelter such as waterproofing, high quality fabric, a range of sizes, strong structures and different pole types.

What is the best carp fishing umbrella?
The best carp umbrella is a choice dependant on what you require from your angling shelter. Depending on the angler and their usage, will depend on the shape you choose, whether it's flatback, hermit or portable dome-type umbrellas! We, here at Angling Direct stock a range of brands that produce top-notch brollies such as Fox, Daiwa, Aqua, and many more! Most carp brollies are essentially a mini-bivvy, perfect if you half plan on staying out overnight, but definitely can’t make a proper weekend of it.
We also stock a full range of brolly systems for when the weather looks set in for a long day of wind and rain. These brolly systems come either with or without front covers, meaning that you can pick the brolly system best suited to your needs. A brolly with a front cover can easily be converted into a small bivvy-like shelter that is perfect for a quick overnighter, so if you’re an angler who can only get onto the water for short sessions at a time, or who likes to remain mobile on the banks and not get bogged down with a larger bivvy structure, our range of carp brolly systems will be perfect for you.
