Re: lightweight 50" brolly

The esp lo pro looks ok with extra long ribs at the front so you don’t need storm poles and it’s light, expensive though!

Re: Bait boat recomendations

I have used it in a good chop and it was fine got to admit it was twitchy bum time for me but the boat coped ok. It’s a payoff I suppose it’s small and light if you’ve got to carry it a good way but there will be times you won’t want to send it out especially on big waters.

Re: Light weight waterproof trousers

My army surplus waterproof trousers give up the ghost last winter so I got some off shore yachting salopettes from gill, they have been spot on up to now but you’d have to keep them on if you went down that route.
