Nets and Fish Care Products
Along with your rod set-up, you will need a Net.
You will need a quality net, if you are hoping for a large fish there is no point in having a small net.
Our net collection covers all your fishing requirements from small stalking nets for the smaller coarse species and Trout, to huge nets for specimen Carp.
Carp fishing nets should be deep and wide to comfortably accommodate a large fish safely, your net should also have a long handle.
Our Large nets range in size between 36 – 50 inches.
Carp fishing nets are deeper than a standard coarse fishing net, they are triangular with long arms and wide gapes. We sell nets that have strong metal spreader blocks for reliability. Plastic spreader blocks can sometimes fail rendering your net useless.
We sell complete nets, floating and standard net heads, and net handles in a range of lengths with comfortable grips.
Coarse fishing nets are generally smaller than carp nets, they are round in shape often referred to as spoon nets.
We have spoon nets in varying sizes allowing the angler to have a change of net head to suit the fishing circumstances.
For the Trout angler who likes to fish on the move, we have flip nets and folding nets of varying sizes with telescopic handles to give you extra reach when you need it.
We stock Keep nets for coarse and match fishing, these nets give you somewhere to keep your catch for the duration of the match or fishing session. Keep nets are usually a square shape and they are incredibly deep to hold all your fish until it is time to weigh your total catch.
When planning your session at any venue, make sure that you are allowed to use a keepnet, some venues do not permit keep nets.
All our nets are made from fish friendly mesh which meets fish care standards.
Unhooking mats Weigh slings and Cradles fall into the fish care category.
You may think that the fight your fish has given you means it is strong, all fish are delicate and should be handled with respect, from small coarse fish to Carp and even Pike.
Unhooking mats are padded to help protect your Carp once you have landed it, leaving your landed fish flapping about on the bank amongst the grass, gravel and other objects will damage the fish.
Slings protect your fish when you are ready to weigh your catch, these are made from fish friendly mesh fabric and are generously sized to hold the body of the fish comfortably.
Cradles also offer maximum protection to your fish with ample cushioning to protect your fish when transporting from the bank to your scales, and when you are situated on lumpy uneven ground.
Whenever you use unhooking mats, slings or cradles you should take care to wet them before putting the fish on them, never put a fish on a dry surface.
Unhooking - Unhooking Pliers, Forceps and Disgorgers.
Long-nosed fishing pliers are ideal for removing deep-set hooks, especially from fish with sharp teeth such as Pike.
Forceps available in a range of sizes are useful for nipping down barbs and removing hooks safely.
Disgorgers are ideal for removing hooks from smaller coarse fish species.
Consider using barbless hooks for your fishing, these are easier to remove and kinder to the fish.
Never pull a hook directly out of your fish, whichever tool you are using, gently push the hook back the way it went in.
