New Shoes for my Fishing Wagon

February 11, 2014

I wrote a piece on my Croix Blanche Lakes blog about the best fishing vehicles a few years back. One of my top vehicles in the post was a 4×4. Now I’ve had a few in the past and I’ve always been very pleased with their ‘Go anywhere’ aspect.. So when I need a new car, (my campervan was just not practical for running a fishery) I naturally opted for an off roader.. It tows well, will go anywhere I need it too and can carry all my fishing gear and the family when needed to.

For a long time a long wheel base 4×4 was my favourite all time fishing car, a go anywhere, unstoppable beast. I’ve had a couple of these and my favourite Nissan Patrol was brilliant. With a full length roof rack, I had enough space for tons of tackle. The rear luggage space was equally vast, and I had up to 7 seats if necessary or 5 comfortably. It never got stuck, even when I sunk the rear axel in the mud over night. Good tyres and four wheel drive were absolutely superb. It was the car I used to pull all those Transits out of the mud… Frontera’s, Discovery’s and Shoguns (Pajero’s in Europe) are common place in England and are great carp angling cars. Just recently Shaun Harrison pulled my MB Vito camper out of the wet grass in his Disco. My latest Terrano has been very good around the lakes in soft mud and sand as well as a solid car in the snow.
