    Default 'Pegging Out' Bivvies on Wooden Platforms

    Some waters have large wooden platforms for fishing from and bivvying up on.


    If you have done this then how do you peg out your bivvy on a wooden platform?

    I was going to say about using a small cordless to run some screws in to attach guy ropes or if the platforms are planks you can tie around the planks (if there are spaces between ) but then saw your edit .

    Fox do some screw in thingies apparently. Or some people use screw in cup hooks. If here i a wire mesh on the platform then tie wraps work to.

    Lifts the wire up and becomes a trip hazard that's why!

    I use the brass cup hooks.
    Also take a bradall with you, makes it much easier to get the hook thread started.

    Aah, OK. But if I take a blow lamp then I can heat up the bent wire then flatten it back down with a hammer.

    Now, what about pooing? I recon that all is need is a drill and a coping saw and some hinges. They can be used to cut a six inch flap in the platform - a bit like a bomb door. SPLOOOOSH! If th platform has a wire mesh on it then some wire cutters will also be needed.

    Most of the platforms I've seen, other than those specific to disabled anglers, have barely enough room to put a chair, let alone camp on!

    Aah Fred, my club has some 'luxury' waters with large, mesh covered wooden platforms big enough for two if required.

    No where to go for a sh1t though!
