Korda boilie krushaThe Korda boilie Krusha is robust and built to stand up to the rigours of bait crushing, it has been carefully constructed from soild materials and the Teeth inside the Krusha will demolish the hardest of baits including tiger nuts, air-dried boilies or brazils. Simply place your chosen bait inside the Korda Boilie Krusha, push the two sides together and get twisting, the more you twist the more you Krush!.

The Krusha is a great time saving device, it will also be very useful in cold weather too, when your hands are freezing and trying to chop up boiles becomes impossible. The Krusher is simple with very little effort required, simply insert the bait, and twist. The more you twist the finer the bait becomes.

I’ve used this on boilies and hard halibutt pellets, it crushes them with no problems.

Fishing Bedchairs

Filed under Carp Fishing Gear

One of the essential accessories a carp fisherman has is his fishing bedchair.

The idea of the bedchair has been taken from the traditional put-up bed when camping. These days, there is a lot more comfort involved, with padded material, springs and a strong well built frame.

The average carp fisherman is very fussy on comfort and gone are the days when you would fish and snooze under the stars, or rain! These days you will find the carp fisherman tucked away inside his bivvy laying on a bedchair with his bite alarms set waiting for the take.

    Fishing Bivvy

    When buying a bivvy for fishing you need to consider the following points, some are essentials but others preferences:


    • Speed to erect the Bivvy, can you erect it by yourself?Buy force 8 bivvy
    • Can it withstand the strong winds and heavy rain?
    • Speed to pack the Bivvy away – does it fit easily into its original bag?
    • How heavy is the Bivvy to carry when packed away?
    • Does it pack into a reasonable size for transporting, both on land and in a vehicle?
    • Is it made from quality products, are the seems, glue, zips, pegs, cord and poles looking good? or are they fragile!
    • Does it dry quickly?
    • Is it a popular brand – can you get parts?

    Personal Preferences:

    • How accessible is the Bivvy, does it have any obstructions, are the zips awkward. You need fast access in and out of the Bivvy if you hook into a fish.
    • Is it spaciouse, will it only fit one fisherman, is there room for your expensive fishing gear. (at night i keep loose expensive tackle inside with me)
    • Height of the Bivvy, the standard is around 5feet 6inches.
    • Is there a flap on the Bivy floor to prevent rain water coming in the entrance?
    • Is there a storm porch for added protection when the doors are open (which can be often).
    • Are there windows on the Bivvy doors
    • Are there pockets in the Bivvy for storing tackle, torches, alarms etc?
    • Are there loops in the Bivvy for hanging lights?
    • Can your bed fit in only one-way?
    • Does it get very hot inside, how many air vents are there?

    BivvyTaking the above options into consideration a Bivvy should be thought as a long term purchase. In other words its best splashing the cash on a decent recommended Bivvy which is going to last years, than paying for a cheap one which isn’t  up to the job and will only last a couple of seasons fishing.

    Even if you only intend to use the Bivvy for short sessions, its still best (if within your budget) to pay that little extra. These days with technology improving you can get a very good Bivvy for around £200+

    If you are a beginner or on a limited budget, then you can pick them up for as little as £30, but obviously the quality is not there.

    Bivvy’s A Bivvy is normally available in two size, being one man or two man. There are also different versions:

    • The Shelter – a simple shelter, normally an umbrella with added canvas and pegged down
    • The Dome – Single skinned layer, doesn’t keep the wind out so well!
    • The Twin-skinned Dome is the all singing and dancing Bivvy. Wind-proof, rain-proof and damp-proof. The double layer also keep the heat in which should be a huge factor if you intend fishing cold nights during the winter.
