Bivvy Top Work Mat

As a long time carp fishing enthusiast, and like the keenest of anglers, I have spent many long sessions on the bank, both days and nights.

During these sessions I have always sought practical ways of making the bivvy environment more orderly, comfortable, and favourable to the tasks of rig preparation, baiting and end-tackle changing.

So, when your alarm does go off, and you land, and return your fish, the next most important thing to do is get your rod out again quickly and efficiently as possible. To ensure these last two objectives are met you need all your rig bits in one secure and easy-to-get to place.


This highly practical piece of kit takes advantage of the top of your bivvy roof by turning it into a work bench.

We at À La Carp have developed and tested the Bivvy Top Work Mat for over two years, and in all weather conditions, to the point that is now an essential item of our fishing gear.

The Bivvy Top Work Mat is made in Great Britain by À La Carp, and we are now ready to share this quality product with our fellow anglers so they too can make it part of their essential set up, and enjoy the benefits of this unique and helpful product.

Bivvy Top Work Mat - Magnetic Hooks

These are compact and very strong hooks especially made to be used with the Bivvy Top Work Mat or can be positioned elsewhere in your bivvy or shelter using the accompanying backing plates.

Made to Measure Bags (Bespoke Service)

We are able to make handy drawstring bags for your fishing items. Some examples, are stink sleeves for landing nets, weigh slings and stuff sacks.

Our bags are made from either medium-weight polyurethane coated polyester (water resistant camouflage fabric) or heavy weight (olive green) cordura fabric.

All our products are treated with a waterproofer and UV protection spray, prior to dispatch.

Our bags come in a range of standard sizes. Alternatively, they can be made bespoke to your specification.

Please don’t hesitate to contact us and we will be happy to discuss your requirements.
