The Drennan Rive Box Has Arrived!

Drennan is proud to endorse the latest seatbox by Rive – man­u­fac­turers of argu­ably the most stylish and desir­able seat­boxes in the world! 


A col­lab­or­ative effort has lead to this all-new Drennan Rive seatbox in our eye-catching aqua, black and grey colour scheme. It is based on the Rive ST frame which includes top quality fea­tures such as the HSP foot­plate and super sturdy D36 Open leg system.


In keeping with the Drennan colour scheme, Rive has replaced the standard wooden drawer ven­eers with stylish aqua plates, while the handles them­selves have been strengthened and improved. The back plate also has an embossed Drennan logo along with the tra­di­tional Rive motif. Even the padded leather pole seat incor­por­ates a tasteful Drennan embroidered logo!


As with all new-style Rive boxes, the cross drawer has also been mod­i­fied so that it slides in and out more effi­ciently. The quick-release catches are also stronger and with stain­less steel pins for extra longevity. The anti-slip foot­plate has also been reen­gin­eered and has a pos­itive locking mechanism.

Other than the unri­valled sta­bility a six-legged D36 sta­tion offers, one of the biggest beau­ties of Rive seat­boxes is the sheer diversity of add-on trays and accessories avail­able. You can cus­tomise a Rive seatbox infin­tely with a plethora of extra trays and gad­gets to make your fishing as com­fort­able and effi­cient as possible.

Of course, a great reason to own one is because it looks so good on the bank and  com­pli­ments Drennan’s latest match clothing and lug­gage range perfectly!

  • Rive ST frame

Jamie Cartwright wins the 2013–14 Drennan Cup!

CONGRATULATIONS to Northampton’s Jamie Cartwright, voted the 2013–14 Drennan Cup Winner! Jamie is shown here with a brace of Chub caught from con­sec­utive casts in October, which weighed 7lb oz and 7lb 1oz.


Jamie enjoyed a spec­tac­ular season studded with huge fish of various spe­cies – including spe­cimen Chub, Bream, Perch, Barbel and Rudd – win­ning four weekly awards during the course of the year.

This was enough to win enough votes from fellow spe­cimen anglers, all pre­vious win­ners of weekly awards, and nar­rowly pip 2012–13 Champion Gareth Goldson. Gareth delivered an equally stellar season which could have easily seen him retain the trophy.

Jamie wins a cheque for £2000 and will be presented with the famous trophy as soon as it can be arranged – pic­tures to follow!

Final Result:

1st: Jamie Cartwright

2nd: Gareth Goldson

3rd: Dr Paul Garner

4th: Steve Russell
