The Maver Reality Umbrellas come under the beady eye of Angler's Mail tackle editor Richard Howard. He's the No.1 products inspector, checking out loads of quality kit every week.

Description: value-for-money fishing umbrellas.

Specifications: 45 and 50 in. sizes; PU-coated canopy; adjustable tilt mechanism.

My verdict: a useful accessory from Maver’s affordable Reality range of tackle, which includes lots of items, from fishing sets designed to get beginners off to a great start, to rods, reels, seatboxes and luggage.

These two umbrellas will offer you much-needed shelter in autumn.

For the sake of an extra fiver, I would opt for the 50 in. design, as it offers a bit more space under the canopy.

It’s also worth investing in a guy rope, so that you can pin it down when faced with gusty conditions.

Prices: £34.99-£39.99.
