I found a seatbox OK if the front legs are on the lower step and the back on the one behind if that makes sense. I dont have a platform on the front of it.
At first sight its rather daunting. A huge water with a rocky bank but every 15 yds or so there are anglers steps. Every now and again down the steps is a concrete platform. There are holes next to the platform to enable an umbrella......................... but............... when windy ones brolly will take off and float away like a coracle with angler chasing it. Ask Simon! I wish my camera was ready . :ROFLMAO:
Seatbox it is then, I have a double arm brolly holder attached to it.
Had a couple of brollies go in the canal years ago when I thought they were OK in the ground.

Let’s hope for better conditions than last time. Strangely I did better when it was blowing a gale. Hard to believe these pictures were only a few hours apart.

Yeah, it was strange that day! It was slightly blowy and rainy in the car park, but it was a storm on the reservoir once I climbed up the slope!

I too caught better when it was blowing a gale! I used a straight lead, mainly because the rod was already set up and I didn’t fancy leaving the shelter of my umbrella!

Hopefully the weather will be kinder to us this time!
