Carp fishing chairs should really provide you with the utmost in portability, comfort, and convenience. Some things you should consider before buying a carp fishing chair include not only deciding on what amenities you would like to have included, but also the durability of the product. Consider carefully the materials used to make it. Here are some basic questions you should consider. What is the carp fishing chair made with? Is it weather proofed? Depending on your weight, is the fishing chair made out of lightweight aluminum, (maximum weight app. 190 lbs.), or is it reinforced for a heavier load capacity? There is nothing worse than sitting down in your new fishing chair and having it collapse.
The carp fishing chair needs to be comfortable. Many carp fishers are adamant about the comfort of the chair. These fishermen are willing to spend many days at the lake and carp fishing is a tedious process. Long periods of time will pass before the alarm bite sounds and you need a chair that you can fully relax in. There are as many different styles of chairs and choosing the right one for you can mean the difference between enjoying some quality down time before you land a giant carp or a miserable experience you will not soon forget.
Carp chairs come with many different style and comfort levels. If you are a fisherman that likes to take short naps while waiting for the alarm bite to sound, then consider a carp chair that reclines and has a built-in headrest. Take into account the amount of padding used to make the chair, you may pay a little more, but the comfort level will be greatly improved. Important things you want from a good carp fishing chair are amenities. Things to look for are padded armrests, lunch cooler insulators, side pockets for sunglasses or a cell phone. If you prefer working from the chair, then consider bait and rig table accessory. Tailoring the right carp chair for you is the upmost importance when pursuing this prized freshwater giant.
Consider also how long the chair will last under various weather conditions. Aluminum parts of a chair that has been treated against oxidization are less likely to rust and corrode around water. If you purchase a chair that is treated to prevent mold, it will not post a health hazard and will look better for a longer period of time. This will give your fishing chair a longer shelf life, perhaps years, adding maximum value for your dollars spent.
Do not forget important factors about the terrain. Some of these back country lakes are rocky, muddy or both. Therefore, when making a decision on the proper chair, make sure the legs are long enough, and are independently adjustable so that you sit relatively level when fishing. Another important feature is pivotal leg pads wide enough to keep your chair from sinking down in the mud.
Some lightweight chairs also come with carrying cases that can be hoisted over your shoulder making them easy to transport short distances while hiking to your favorite fishing spot. This is especially handy when you are also carrying a fishing rod and tackle box.
