  1. #1

    can anyone recommend a good landin net that best suits barbel fishing, ive recently converted from match angling and my current 'carp friendly' net catches on the barbels dorsal fin, which im not happy about as fish welfare is paramount

    A double T landing net if you want a triangular jobbie, or an abu spoon type one if that takes your fancy.

    There is only one landing net for barbel and that is the one marketed by Leslies. It is round and will hold the biggest barbel that has ever swam.

    I truly hate and detest tri-angular nets with silly strings across the front.

    Should be banned!!

    Bear in mind that too fine a mesh can be very difficult to manoeuvre in fast/heavy current.

    Just look up Leslies of Luton on google. It's not the cheapest net but it is the best I have ever seen. I've landed 15 lb pike in mine - no problem.
