Daiwa Sandstorm Shelter
If you’re looking for a top quality beach shelter for all your sea fishing needs, there are a couple of things you need to keep in mind. Luckily, the Daiwa Sandstorm Shelter ticks all of theses boxes and it is an excellent shelter choice for the angler who wants to spend time on the beach in windy or wet conditions
The first thing to bear in mind when you’re looking for a shore fishing shelter is its size. Unlike the large overnight bivvies used by carp anglers, shore shelters are small, lightweight, and compact. This Daiwa Sandstorm Shelter is certainly all this and it offers unparalleled protection from the elements whilst remaining neat and compact. The shelter is wide enough for two anglers to take shelter, making this an excellent choice for the angler who likes to socialise whilst they are on a swim. Its open front is an impressive 2.5m wide, ensuring that you can enjoy a full panoramic view over the sea even when two of you are taking shelter. One of the best features about this particular shelter is its flat roof. Many traditional beach shelters have a pointed roof and are tepee like in appearance. Although this makes them quick to erect, it also restricts your visibly – even if the shelter does offer the same large open front as the Daiwa Sandstorm. The flat top ensures that you can always keep an eye on your rods, no matter your position in the shelter.
The second thing to look out for when you’re buying a sea fishing shelter is its speed of construction. No angler wants to waste half an hour on the beach as they wrestle with their shelter and with the Daiwa Sandstorm shelter erection has never been so speedy. The poles of the shelter are all elasticated, meaning that you never have to spend time deciding which pole connects to which. This really is a shelter that has been designed for rapid construction. Another incredible feature of the shelter, one which really comes into play when the wind picks up, is it extended storm skirt. 40cm deep, this skirt can hold a generous number of rocks. This gives you the confidence to erect the shelter in the windiest of conditions, trusting that it won’t blow away in an aggressive gust. The skirt is also fitted with eyelets, too. This is because the Daiwa Sandstorm is supplied with four ground spikes, allowing you to piece into the shore (provided you’re fishing from a terrain which allows this). To gives you additional structural security and it ensures that you’re never at risk of losing your shelter in a strong breeze.
The final thing to look out for when you’re investing in a beach fishing shelter is its quality of manufacture. As this is a Daiwa product, you can be completely confident that this shelter will live up to all your expectations. Hardwearing, durable, and well made, this is a shelter that will see you through a lifetime of shore fishing. It also comes it a fabulous vivid yellow colour. This is a far cry from the carpy olives and khakis of traditional bivvies and it truly sets this shelter apart as a sea angler’s friend.
As an added bonus, the Daiwa Sandstorm Shelter also comes with its own carry bag, in a matching canary yellow. This ensures that this shelter is easy to transport to and from the shore and the whole outfit weighs in under 3kg. Sandstorm is Daiwa’s dedicated sea fishing range and this shelter is an excellent addition to an already impeccable collection.
