An early lure outing before watching Wales against Iran

The lead image is the back of the car with the gear loaded and ready to depart the drive.

The main thing you notice is how everything fits in easily and comfortably.

There’s a rod that just needs piecing together at the water’s edge, landing net, unhooking mat, shoulder bag and a tripod.

The material that you can see which covers the boot itself is an old sleeping bag.

It helps to keep the car clean and avoids knocks and scratches.

As any angler knows, it’s hard to maintain your car in pristine condition.

Especially when you fish most days, like I do.
