River anglers will be able to night-fish in style on a stretch of one of our most popular rivers this summer, thanks to an ambitious project being set up on a newly opened day-ticket fishery.
In what is believed to be the first of its kind for a running water venue, 10 portable glamping pods will be available to book from June 16 on a prolific 600 yard stretch of the River Trent in Newark, Nottinghamshire.
The pods, which run on solar power and offer a charging point, a USB port and a socket for a kettle is the brainchild of fishery manager Joe Fox, who is building more of the pods for other fisheries to rent.
“River anglers don’t get the comfort of their stillwater counterparts so these will allow them to enjoy a night session in comfort,” said Joe. To book a session at the fishery or ask about renting pods, visit Joe’s Facebook page: Maltkiln Lane Trent Fishing.
