if you can wait till tomorrow i will write it up in detail for you
this net is micky mouse (excuse the pun)Hi ,
My net is about 30ft long ,green mesh with floats on the top and it cost me about 60 quid off ebay last year.Think the trick is to weigh the bottom down with some chain so that it digs into the sand and flick the eels out. Thanks once again for the info.
i agree 100% with ss on the trawl opinion i own a sandeel trawl so have first hand experience of them i have never had any trouble with mine but ALLWAYS have a knife to hand as if a problem does arise the rope will be cut ASAP..Search the forums - this has been covered before.
Unless you know what you are doing - avoid trawls as you can get yourself in serious trouble quite easily. Towing a trawl can significantly alter a vessels stability charachteristics - especially if the net comes fast or fills with sand.
As for liciences - you need one if netting estuarys or river systems as i do. Contact the local environment agency office. In the open sea no licience is required but i'd suggest contacting your local sea fisheries office to check if there are any local byelaws forbidding seining etc etc.
