Setting up for a day session often means heading out to your chosen swim before the sun has risen, and in the winter months when the sun is only out for a few hours a day you can often spend more of your time angling in the dark than you do in the light. Although some anglers prefer natural light, there’s no denying than a good light or two is essential for those early starts – particularly if you’re setting up for a long carp fishing session or you’re setting off bright and early for a sea fishing excursion. For those anglers who like to make their sessions a little longer and don’t want to bed down at 7pm with the sun, a top quality head torch or bivvy light is essential for manoeuvring in the darkness. Nothing could be worse than a misplaced step sending you sliding down the bank – or even worse disrupting your careful rig! With the right kind of lighting, there’s never any reason to stop fishing just because the day is over.
Here at Angling Direct, we take every aspect of fishing seriously – including that all-important illumination. That’s why we’ve pulled together the UK’s most comprehensive range of lighting products from a series of world-renowned brands, where quality and value for money go hand-in-hand. Whether looking for that perfect lantern to shine a little light in your bivvy or a heavy-duty head-torch to help keep a close eye on what’s happening on the water, we’ve got just the products for you.
We have products from a whole host of the most respected angling lighting suppliers in the world. We stock Fox, ESP, LED Lenser, and Petzl to name a few – not to forget newcomers RidgeMonkey, whose innovative products have been taking the angling community by storm. Angling Direct understands that there’s nothing worse than having your enjoyment or your success cut short by failing or generally lacklustre equipment. We therefore only ever stock the kinds of products and tackle we’re happy to use ourselves when out and about across the UK and beyond. Each lighting product across our fishing tackle range has been hand-selected by us and tested for durability and quality. We even have lights in our own brand Advanta range, as we know that adequate lighting at night is key to angling success in the day.
If you’re the kind of angler who lives for twilight angling, the lighting you choose can make all the difference in the world to your comfort and success rate. For the rest of us early birds who like to get started before the sun (and other anglers) hit the bank, a decent head torch is more than useful to stop us from tangling all our tackle together and enabling to set up our stellar rigs. Preparation is key to angling success, and adequate lighting is key to top quality preparation.
If you’re in need of any extra help when deciding what light to buy, any member of our excellent team will be more than happy to share their pearls of wisdom. You can find all the contact information on our website – or why not pop into your local store to try out the light and chat face to face with our shop staff – all of whom are avid anglers themselves.
