    I can't help feeling you really need to find some shady spots on hot days. Sunstroke, headaches etc, not a good alternative.

    It’s important for us all to remember that when fishing we get a double dose of rays with reflections from the water.

    Also not to get caught out on cloudy days, my last trip as described on HDYGO was thick cloud cover all day but I still went home having caught the rays.

    With high temperatures forecast for next week I shall spend a day fishing at Fordwich in this swim which remains in shade all day but allows just enough height for an 11ft rod.

    Looks a good spot.


    Regarding umbrellas. I put mine up to give shade. I think the extra weight involved is well worth it to to be comfortable.
    The bonus I have found with a brolly is when fishing a spot on a shallow river or lake margin where the fish are easy to spook a brolly behind hides the skyline and the fish dont spook. Try it . It works. Hope that makes sense.

    You cant roam with an umbrella though

    You know those novelty umbrella hats you see at places like the cricket with the little parasol brolly attached to a headband, I reckon they would be the norm if everyone wore one, It's like a parasol but hands free and seems win win to me aside from windy days, never worn one, mind you I've worn worse - Will look for a camo one

    Yes, dont forget to buy one with a chinstrap to prevent it sailing off downstream. I just chuckle at the mental image of some twonkle wearing one. However on reflection better not mock as Fairbrass will probably market one soon.

    Hmm, with your made up hair rigs dangling off the brim (like those Aussie hats) aussie hats with corks - Google Search and the corks protecting the hooks.

    Perhaps I better get onto it!

    I am so tempted, It would probably guarantee no numpties setting up opposite me especially if I shout out "ARE WE FRIENDS I LIKE YOU"
