Tackle I'd like to see invented?

Recommended Posts

I would like to see a "Stalking Umbrella" 35-40'' maximum size, with a good sharp spike pole. Light and made of quality materials.  WHY?

Well, in summer it's the odd heavy shower that catches me out. I don't take all my rain gear as most is winter orientated. So to be able to carry a small umbrella, light just to cover me and my chair would be great. Also the sun in summer, acting as a nice shade area over my head and arms.

In winter I wear all my winter gear, quality stuff but still a heavy shower can get it all wet and heavy. A light brolly just to keep the odd shower off for an hour or so?

Would one be of interest to you guys? How much, well I'd pay £50-£70 if the quality was good.  I have tried taking a normal umbrella, but holding it all the time does not work, it needs a good lite spike.

Isn’t that what a fishing umbrella is mate? Not sure if I get what you mean lol 

It’s not green mate you won’t catch!!

Green is so passe, it has to be MTP or Camo now!

Would the tfg air bomb hit 120+yards? 

You'd struggle big time imo mate, not good for distance.

I've got a dodgy shoulder

I once did a France trip with 30 odd kg and my spot was 100+. Baited with the stick all week, absolutely destroyed me. I pulled my shoulder, blistered my hands, all sorts😫

I remember the shoulder got better weeks and weeks later and just as I thought it was sorted I climbed a tree on a local pit and pulled it again lol.

high powered paintball gun?

I did a bit of research Into that, unless your boilies are all the correct size it would end up knackering the barrel pretty quick and also the noise would irritate people 

What I am thinking is a pva bag that has some water stored somebow that when it reaches near the spot releases and explodes the bag mid air, haven't got a clue how to make that happen though :)

I wouldn't mind seeing a decent device for applying boilies at 120+ yards without dumping them in a tight clump

The guys that own the local tackle shop built a propane powered cannon, and it fired an 18L pail of groundbait 100 yds in just a few shots.  As far as I know, they only used it once though.

I was using my throwing stick yesterday, I was really struggling to get 10yrd, then realised the boilie's weren't dropping down the tube properly, I was throwing boilie's that had been glugged and I thought some had stuck inside, so I tried washing out with some water, no better. 

So I gave it a good few bangs on the ground and the biggest slug I ever seen in my life fell out of the end. 😁😁😁
