How to choose the right carp barrow:

The main consideration when buying a carp barrow is capacity, how much kit can you carry? Carp fishing is synonymous with longer sessions, normally overnight, meaning you need to take a lot more gear.

Angling Direct also stock fully adjustable barrows. These have extending sides and an extending front, allowing you to take a bigger load when you need it. Extending barrows are ideal for the angler who likes to do a mix of quick overnighters and longer session swims, as they offer the perfect mix of being compact and spacious.

However, the amount of gear your barrow can carry is only the first aspect that you need to look into when you’re investing in a top quality fishing barrow. The pack down size of your barrow is almost as important as the amount of gear it can hold – after all, you need to be able to fit it in your boot along with the rest of your luggage.

So whether you like to travel light and just need a little help transporting your seat box, or you prefer to enjoy a long session which requires bivvies and bedchairs, as well as your usual collection of tackle, we have a trolley or barrow for you. In fact, we’re so certain that barrows improve your angling success that we’ve designed one for our own-brand Advanta range – which has practicality and value for money in mind.

 

 

Match

Angling Direct is proud to put its name to an extensive collection of fishing barrows and trolleys sourced from the industry’s most trusted names that are built for Coarse and Match anglers in mind.

How to choose the right match trolleys:

Our fishing barrow and trolley accessories provide you with additional storage space on your barrow. Panniers, or side bags allow you to hang tackle from the side of your barrow as well as stacking it on top. You will find that some of the panniers we stock have been specially designed with bait storage in mind. Angling Direct also stock a range of bags which have been designed to sit on the front of your barrow. This is the part of the barrow which will likely be angled slightly downwards, so having a sealed bag is imperative.

Beach

Lugging around the necessary tackle for even a short day session on the beach can often be exhausting if you’re restricted to the gear you can carry on your back and in your arms. The same is true of match and carp venues, but you have the added demand of more challenging terrain at most UK beach fishing spots; cliffs, steep steps, promenades, piers, rocks and even the sand itself can prove difficult to navigate.

A good quality beach fishing trolley, or barrow can save you a lot of time and effort, and will often mean you can take a bit more tackle with you on your next sea fishing trip.

 

 

How to choose the right beach barrow:

Wheels are a hugely important aspect of your barrow purchase and we have a variety of wheel setups available in our barrow range. The main difference between beach trolleys and those used in the match and carp discipline is the wheels, which will appear almost over-inflated, this is to ensure dragging the barrow over the sand is not too demanding.

Capacity is another factor to consider, can you load all your gear onto the trolley to minimise trips? There are of course accessories that will increase the capacity of your barrow, side bags, or panniers, handle attachments amongst others. Failing that, a couple of trusty guide ropes will do the job.

The Tronixpro Beach Trolley is a large capacity trolley that is quick and easy to setup. It has been designed to carry tackle boxes, bait and other accessories from the car to the fishing mark. Made from aluminium it is lightweight but incredibly strong, allowing the angler to load as much kit as required. It can carry large tackle boxes, bait buckets, clothes, cool boxes, pretty much anything needed for a session! The Trolley will fold completely flat, allowing it to be stored in the boot of a car without it taking up too much space.
