Been scouring the car boots for one of these. :cool:

The carpers are suitably horrified! :laughs: :thumbs:

Sounds groovy Kev. :cool:

I only paid 2 quid for my stripey one on Sunday. If I see a psychedelic leafy or floral one, i'll definitely buy it. :thumbs:

I thought mine went very well with my bargain £1 landing net and the rod rest set at a jaunty angle.

A couple of carpy types actually stopped for a chat today. They didn't want to know where I'd got my chair though (but they did want to know what bait I'd been using! :pipe: ).

I think my dad still has one of those and probably the same colours too, must be 50 plus years old as i can remember it as a kid.

Can see him sat in it supping a bottle from a wooden crate of "Davenports beer at home", sorry kinda wandered off there.

Regards

Martin

You want to see the prices they go for on eBay Martin! You'd be lucky to find one under £20, plus hefty postage.

(Apparently vintage picnic chairs are all the rage with trendy VW Camper owners. :pipe: ).

On occasions I still use a lafuma low chair which I was given over 10 years ago now. Its nice and light for stalking but it can be a bit sore on the back getting up and down from it.

I know what you mean Iain, my lowchair days are pretty much over too - I need to do a kind of 'parachute roll' to get off them these days! :laughs:

It won't be long before I need one of those spring-loaded chairs that tip you forward when you need to get up! :madmick:

(I wonder if they do a deluxe version with a built in commode? :clown: ).

Are you left handed John?
That would explain a lot.

No, I'm right handed John (but I was fishing tight to the left hand reed margin).

They were a massive upgrade from those three cornered collapsable stools, or the arris imprinting wicker creel back in the day John.

Got a couple of these kicking about if you want a more avant garde version. :smile:

That is a fantastic chair Chris! :cool:

From a distance you'd think it was a camo pattern - only to be hit by its full-on floral funkiness at close range! :laughs: :thumbs:

I spent my very early fishing years tetering on one of these. You learned very quickly that they would dump you on your a**e if the wire hook at the bottom wasn't engaged properly! If I remember correctly, mine was orange and my brother Rob's was blue - I think they were sold as a pair in Woolworth's.
