      Invest in a decent set of waterproofs and bin the brolly.

          i recently got the waterline fibre light. its brilliant, it has fibre-glass arms so that if the wind is really strong it basicaly just flexes the arms a bit sor it neither rips or breaks. lifetime warranty and is light but very waterproof. RRP £60

              I was looking at the pole flap brollys myself, but they seem to limit the position of the brolly so you can ship through. I have used a short brolly arm off a box leg in some proper typhoons this year, and stayed nice and dry.
              I'll look at them fibrelites though, my brolly is about 25 yrs old.

                that tells you a little bit about them but i can say they are very versitile. I went to barbel fish a far away spot on the train turned out they was cuting weed up stream so i couldnt fish it at all as no matter what method weed every 10 seconds. so i set that up live a small bivvy and when to sleep for 4 hours in high wind and rain. Dry as a bone

                  I might have to invest in one of them for next years british summer. The relic I lug about weighs about 3 ton, dry.

                      i'm using a zebco that i got from argos, stays dry on the inside and is plenty big enough, also happily supports its own weight on the ribs if you can't get the bankstick in. does weigh a bit though but i can't complain for £25
                      i'm not lazy, just energy efficient.

                        i always wear waterproofs but i use a brolly to keep my kit and especially my bait dry, the smell of drying and damp bags when i open my tackle cupboard gets my missus moaning for hours, mind you she moans all the time anyway

                          Here's my advice... I've tried most of the brollys on the market. Conclusion is, none of them are really up to the wind and rain we get. Some of the cheapest ones have lasted the longest. So buy the cheapest, my current one was £14.95 from argos and has lasted 3 years. Why pay more? Expensive ones, £60 plus, haven't lasted any longer.
