For all those who are not initiated to this type of fishing and who wish to participate in this tournament, here is the minimum equipment required so as not to be caught off-guard:

  • A tent to shelter in case of bad weather;
  • Something to sleep and be warm (floor mat, inflatable mattress or a folding camping bed). WARNING : the ground is not flat and smooth like in a camping site ;
