Recommended Posts

any ideas about a mat for lying on mud  & shingle my elbow has never been the same when my stabilizer failed because lager was like water of the gods, i thought about a yoga mat but would probably blow away

That’s the conundrum.....anything light will blow away, anything heavy will be a burden to carry! Not tried it myself, but you could try pinning a light mat down with tent pegs/stakes?

The folding sitting mats you see in outdoor shops will do. Light and strong enough. Could use more than one.

When my knees were in good condition I would kneel a lot , I would put down a piece of Black builders polyphane to keep the wet or the mud out and a piece of Green canvas on top , both of them would fit in my game bag ( postman's bag ) , if I was sitting on the edge of a drain or you might call them creeks or gullies , I would do the same and put some grass or straw in the game bag to sit on , as I worked for a building firm at the time , all the materials cost next to nothing , or to be more precise ....... nothing :lol:

Foam pads are cheap as chips, the insulation makes them better on your joints.

I can kneel no problems, getting back up is the hard part.

Fell over inebriated and damaged his elbows? At a guess!

pints of lager were excellent which is unusual nowadays so filled my boots and when i got off the bus they were disconnected from brain hence falling backwards.

As previously stated unhooking mat for fishing. Korda do an excellent one for around a tenner with a fold out flap to one side.
