PEG, BIVVY or BEACH SHELTER, the new Midwater Luggage Bank Tidy is effectively a simple textile fishing bin. Sits next to you on the peg for you to drop the sessions waste into. Shaped for both stability and to reduce the chances of the wind blowing the contents away (and with industrial hook and loop to close to take home without spilling the contents from the session) these are better than using a plastic bag for those that want them and far more cool looking.
The Pyramidal frustum (pyramid with the top chopped off) shape is stable and you can also drop a stone or something heavy in when placing it down on the bank on a blustery day. They are not water tight of course (we sew them lol) but you could line them with a watertight bag of your own. Fully padded and lined to maintain a little shape these could be used for a host of reasons but we designed them as a bank side little bin. They can be turned inside out and washed with warm soapy water easy enough.
Something like this may only suit a few conscious anglers and we are happy to be of service. If this is not for you or you think it a stupid idea, don't laugh or mock we are here to meet the needs of the few, not just the many.
Pictures courtesy of Paul Pritchard and Stewart Wilson who are happy with their Bank Tidys. Paul said, "Very happy with it and very practical, to such an extent my son even came over from his peg at the end of the day to get rid of his rubbish". Stewart commented, "it was perfect, held a couple of cans, a poly bag that my maggots came in, the wrappers from my bacon buttie and some rubbish and discarded line I picked up off the bank before hand. Very impressed with it, it didn't move all day and it was pretty windy out."
CUSTOM AND FUNKY COLOUR SCHEMES available by request.
We know you can buy a plastic bag for 30p. (£6.99 divided by 30p is 23.3 so 24 bin liners later you could have saved money with the Bank Tidy.
We know they would sink (don't try to float them) and so do plastic bags. BUT they are shaped for stability and you can put something heavy in the bottom to prevent it blowing in accidentally.
Regardless of how obscure, we try to oblige where possible. Quality up, costs down and made in England with the individual Angler in mind.
