When "nature calls", fishing can get dicey and sometimes extremely unpleasant. In this article, you will therefore find out what problems anglers have when it comes to "big business". And which solution is the best.

General "business problems" when fishing

If you spend hours enjoying the idyllic lakeside setting and waiting for your catch, it can be a bit of a "squeeze". And now? Fishing enthusiasts can sympathize only too well with the following challenges:

  1. 🙄 Business problem: No toilet nearby. If you fish in waters that are far away from camping facilities and restaurants, you won't have a toilet nearby. You could drive to the nearest gas station, but honestly, who wants to go to that trouble? This interrupts your fishing pleasure for a long time. Especially if you are fishing alone, you certainly don't want to leave your equipment unattended. But packing everything up and setting it up again makes no sense at all. There's no longer any question of having fun.

  2. 🙄 Business problem: A toilet nearby. Maybe you choose the solution "a toilet nearby" for the problem "no toilet nearby". In other words, you can of course always try to get the same place to fish next to a restaurant. This has the advantage that you can use their toilet. But it has the disadvantage that you always fish in exactly the same spot and that gets boring. These spots are also the ones with the most people. It's not really quiet and relaxed.

  3. 🙄 Business problem: doing it in front of an audience . "Off to the forest" is probably everyone's first idea. But what if it doesn't exist? If there are only a few easily visible bushes or you have to make do with the sparse vegetation on the banks? Then you have to expect to have more or fewer spectators (cyclists, joggers and walkers) in this compromising position.

  4. 🙄 Business problem: In the middle of the pedal mines. Are you one of those people who have a spot by the lake with a few trees and bushes close by? Then you've probably already experienced that not everyone thinks it's a good idea to use a folding spade. That's what it looks like behind those bushes - simply disgusting. Depending on the light conditions and the amount of droppings, you can't pay enough attention and still catch one of the landmines. What a nuisance!

    This scenario is not exaggerated. In some waters, this pollution has become so rampant that it was necessary to introduce a new regulation.

Anglers' toilet a must-have

In 2020, human waste has overtaxed nature at lakes in Central Franconia. That's why the toilet requirement for night anglers was introduced at the beginning of 2021 . What does that mean?

The Fischereiverband Mittelfranken e.V. requires night anglers to carry a portable toilet. At which lakes does this obligation already apply?

  • RMD Canal in Middle Franconia

  • Happurger reservoir and quarry pond

  • Wöhrder Lake

  • Rothsee, Altmühlsee, Igelsbachsee, Großer and Kleiner Brombachsee

If you are unable to show a portable toilet at these waters when a fishing inspector checks, he is authorized to note this on the permit. Getting upset and arguing is useless here. Fishing inspectors are entitled to enforce bans, fishing bans or fines in the event of non-cooperation or inappropriate language.

Should you let this spoil your fishing fun? Absolutely not! Because this problem can be solved. How and what should you pay attention to when deciding on an angler's toilet?

An angler's toilet must meet these requirements

  • ✅ Compact format: The toilet for anglers must be compact, so that you can easily take it with you in addition to your fishing equipment.

  • ✅ Ready for immediate use: The portable toilet should be ready for immediate use, because a good solution is a simple one. If the toilet has to be set up first and then packed away again in its original packaging after the work is done, there's a good chance that it won't be used at all.

  • ✅ Robust: The angler's toilet must be robust so that it doesn't collapse the first time you sit on it. It should also be able to withstand longer sessions.

  • ✅ Weatherproof: Fishing enthusiasts need a toilet made of weatherproof material, so that clammy temperatures and wet waders are no problem. Toilet solutions made of cardboard are therefore not suitable.

  • Sustainable : Out of love for nature, the angler's toilet should be sustainable. This means: recycled materials, reusable and chemical-free.

  • ✅ Easy to clean: To make the portable outdoor toilet easy to clean, it should be washable and the disposal of waste should be child's play.
