Small folding landing net

Good evening and Happy New Year.

The latest addition to my collection is this landing net I bought a few weeks ago. It's approximately 5ft with the net on, the handle is 4ft when extended and 3ft when reduced. The net needs replacing as it is showing signs of considerable age (any tips on where to go for this?)

I just wondered if anyone knew anything about it or is it a one off? I can seem to find any markings.

My intention is to put a new net on, clean up the fittings as best I can and treat it to a new coat of varnish. I bought it for my short roving sessions on the small rivers and streams near where I live.

Good Morning, try Sharpe's of Aberdeen. Stocked under the name of "net bags". They come in various sizes and I would think the trout net would make a perfect replacement, as it has the smallest woven mesh diameters. These are quality nets and although come in a bluish/silver colour. They can be dyed with Dylon Havana Brown, to produced a very pleasing cigar hue coloured net. I stuff the net with dye and a little salt into an old thermos flask, add hot water from the kettle and leave over night. Job done!

A couple of other options. I've got the troutcathers option fitted to two different nets. ... 2195954436 ... 02x2685793
