5 Beneficial Reasons To Obtain A Fishing Chair

By Frank Muller

Most people that are new to fishing will look at buying equipment from the viewpoint of which reel and rod to get. Whilst I can understand this type of mentality and agree with it i do think that a fishing chair should be included. Time and time again I have seen this however, believe me, the added joy that you get from the fishing experience with one is untrue. The cost of buying one is heavily outweighed by the benefit one gets. It is a 'no brainer' as they say.

What benefits do you get from a fishing chair?

Well, first and foremost, they are not hugely expensive. This is not something that is going to break the bank. Now relax and breath. But before you do think about how much ones of these chairs costs think not just from a cost perspective. Think more about value for money. Cost versus benefit. This is the basis on how you truly measure something of value.

Secondly they are made from light, strong material. They have a strapping system, just like a backpack has, that means you can carry them on your back easily. You will have both hands free to carry other fishing tackle. Very useful if you have parked your vehicle miles away from your fishing peg. Also useful if the terrain is unstable which is common along riverbanks.

Thirdly the material can be cleaned easily with soap and water and it is weatherproof, as you imagine it should be. Not much of a benefit I hear you say, however have a quick think about it. For those of you who have, at some point, had smelly fish in your house you will know how long it takes to get rid of the aroma. The padding the lumbar area of the chair is also music to ones ears.

Fourthly there is a cup holder and tray that swing out of each chair arm. You can eat, drink and be merry and still keep your beady eyes on your float. Getting a bit doesn't mean that you will be slow to react. Handy if you are in a match and you have to stay rooted to your peg for most of the day.

Finally you have a rod holder that is part and parcel of the configuration. The rod holder works well with the tray and cup holder mentioned previously. All of this means that you SHOULD never miss the opportunity to land a fish!

So there are the 5 top reasons as to why one should place importance on a fishing chair as being part of your fishing tackle. I am not going to insult your intelligence, there are alternatives available. There are plenty available from camping shops and are generally cheaper but you are compromising and do you want to do that? The fishing chair is a product that has been designed exclusively for fishing and designed by people who have experienced fishing. Buying anything that is different is just a case of false economy.
