The best feeder fishing chairs

by Angling Times |

Fishing chairs have always been popular with pleasure, carp and specialist anglers.

But, with the continued success and popularity of feeder fishing, out-and-out feeder chairs designed specifically for the task are on the increase. But what should you look for in one? The criteria for what makes a good or great feeder chair have to be as follows:

* Look for ones without arms or arm-rests as these can get in the way when casting or putting down the butt section of your rod.

* A high padded rear section to support your head and neck, combined with an easy tilting or reclining mechanism, is another ‘must’ because it will allow you to get comfortable even when fishing on fast-running water where your rod-tips are pointed skywards.

* Telescopic front legs are another essential. Most banks (and this applies to all venues) slope toward the water, so you’ll need longer front legs to level up your chair.

* Having a design that allows the use of integral side trays, rod rests and a keepnet arm will always make things quicker and easier for you once you’re actually fishing.

The specially designed feeder chair has a high padded back section that supports your head and neck, so if you’re fishing running water and staring up at your rod-tips for long periods, this chair will help rather than hinder you.

MIDDY MX-100 POLE/FEEDER RECLINER CHAIR

Price £199.99

More of an all-rounder than just a feeder chair, Middy’s MX-100 offers incredible comfort and flexibility. Its unique design allows for an extendable side bar to be fitted to the main frame, while the supplied front and rear pole rests hold a pole in place hands-free.

A handy rear rippled foam rear rest keeps spare rods close to hand, and an up-and-over mid-positioned rest can be flipped over to act as a butt rest.

Finally, the front rest’s ribbed head section allows for quivertips to be accurately positioned. It also features a U-bend to hold a pole.

There’s a side tray and a one-way arm with a threaded stick that acts as a keepnet holder. A cut-away section makes for easy shipping of a pole, and a high padded headrest, adjustable legs, swivel mudfeet and multi-positional recline complete the picture. It folds flat for easy transportation.
