Where to find?

Post by BrightonCynic »

I'm just returning to coarse fishing and, rods and reels aside, I need everything to fish. Optimistically I'm starting with a landing net and am wondering where to find something appropriate for river chub, barbel and carp? I like to be mobile so something foldable I can clip to a waistcoat would be ideal. Hope you can help ...

Sounds like you need something like a Gye net. If you Google that you'll get various suppliers and sizes. :Hat:

The best place I've found for classic-looking, foldable, extending landing nets is Decathlon.

Whether they're a particularly 'continental' thing, like much of their gear, I'm not sure, but they often have them in stock.

Not just trout-sized ones, but nets big enough for larger fish like carp. This one has served me well for many years and still gets some use for mobile sessions.

Something like a Sharpes Belmont perhaps?

Funnily enough I think I have a Sharpes net somewhere - but it'll need a new - knotless - mesh ...
