Ridgemonkey Bivvy Light


I have had my bivvy light for over 5 months and used it most nights when I am out fishing. I don’t use it to read by or keep on for hours, just to bait up and do a spot of cooking.  I use the brightest setting, not the red, not sure about that one yet.  I have been fishing at least one night a week, if not more and used the light most nights.  I have still yet to charge it up, this is just brilliant and the fact that it would be quite a simple process, as I carry a power pack for my phone.  So when I do finally have to charge the bivvy light, I will be able to do it on the bank.


It has a magnetic strip you can attach it to you bivvy/brolly


There are two cords which enable you to hang it from brolly spokes or a magnet hook.

I have attached a clip to mine which makes it a bit easier for me to attach.


This allows me to clip it on quick over the brolly spoke and I can just slide it up and down depending on where I need the light to be under the brolly.



I have also found a use for those old pva tubes!


A perfect place to store the bivvy Light when not in use.


This is a great bit of kit and I believe I have finally found a bivvy light that is perfect for the job.

Regards Richard



About richardhandel

I would like to give a brief snap shot of my life and introduce myself; My name is Richard Handel and was born in 1965 in Suffolk. I have worked as a UK Operation & Intermodule Manager for a shipping company. I live in Hampshire now and am married with 2 young children, both girls so I am a bit outnumbered even the cat is a girl! I have been fishing since I was about 7 years old. I started on small local rivers in Suffolk, then moved onto gravel pits and then carp fishing. My personal best is a 39.08 mirror, over recent years I have started river fishing again, on the Hampshire Avon, this is a nice break from the carp lakes. My life has turned a big corner this year, the company I was working for relocated their Operation centre to Estonia. I was offered a job at the head office in London. This would have meant a 5 day commute and working in Stratford. As a family, we did not fancy this, as I would hardly spend any time with the children (and the Mrs). So after 22.5 years, I was given a nice redundancy package and with my wife is working full time. I became the house husband. This has meant a complete turn around in my fishing, as I can pick and choose when I go. I have found a splendid new syndicate to fish this year, which includes 5 lakes and some 8 miles of river with only 150 members. It's an amazing change to the way I am able to fish. I am now trying to start my own tackle business and make a bit of a name for myself in the world of fishing, as I have retired from real work. Richard
