I'm in the market for a new landing net. Needs to be something I can have hanging off a belt or my sling bag.

There's a couple I've got my eye on in the Sport fish catalogue, a Snowbee one and an Abu one, both in the £30 range, which look like they'd do the job.

I just wondered if anyone had any other suggestions?

Cheers,
Simon

I have the shakespeare agility trout net in large.
Rubberised mesh, telescopic handle and folding all for £25.
Well worth a look.
Sawnee got the same one and shortened his handle.

All I would say is make sure it has rubberised mesh......vital for lure fishing.
I have had loads of nets and the rubberised ones are a massive step forward.

You don't get the hook v net problem.

Just lift the hooks out.

If you get one, make sure you get the older version (not the 2015) as it has a decent clip on it that you can hang from a bag or belt. Lightweight and easy to open one handed. Had pike to about 16lb in the 60x60cm but know people who have had low 20's (about 42" long) in them, at a push. The 60x60cm is about big enough to land any bass any of us are likely to ever come across in the UK from the shore.

The 200 size is 2m extended handle and they do the same one in 2.5m if you need it... just makes it longer and more awkward when hanging down being carried... the 2m one is the one to go for imho unless you need a long reach net.

I agree with Nick, get a rubber mesh net. Mesh size is important as well.. the big holes in the Snowbee net for example, are brilliant at splitting pectoral fins. About 10-12mm mesh is about right imho.

Spent a couple of hours yesterday sewing up tears in my Greys net...
Don't know how I get the holes

Thanks for that. What length is the handle when retracted?

The large agility takes some beating for the money.
I shortened the handle on mine by about 10" just to make it easier to use when wading and also it won't ride up and unclip itself when I sit on a rock.
Nice and easy to flip open and light enough to hang on my back from a magnet

It definitly looks like a good shout. This Rapala one looks OK, too.
