  1. Question Folding Triangle Landing Net & Pole ??

    I quite fancy a folding landing net & pole, so i can carry with rods. Something like this http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Mitchell-Foldi...item2eb02239ae They seem very cheap on eBAY etc (some less than £15). Are these any good or just cheap rubbish ??

    Does anyone know if they can be purchased with either latex or rubber mesh ??

    I carry an Abu Garcia all-in-one net with aluminium telescopic handle.They come on three net sizes and I think they can be seen on the company website...
    The handle extends to about 2.5m in three sections,is extremely light and excellent for roving fishing.The net(standard net material)collapses by sliding a simple catch and folds down the side of the handle.
    I've had mine for a few years and still going strong!

    I thought mine good at about £30 but maybe this is too much dosh for you.......£15 sounds too good to be true,but who know it might be a steal!!

    The netsd you are looking at are trout nets. These maybe a little on the short side as regards to handle length. The Abu comes in a choice of 4 handle lengths, the last being a 3 piece handle and much longer than the others. The Mitchell doesn't state handle legnth but looks short.

    When I first started fishing 40 years ago, triangular folding net heads were the norm and you just got the handle you wanted.

    CN....yes,this is the net I use,and as Wobley says,it probably is a trout net!
    However it is still a great net for what I want which is roving fishing etc BECAUSE it is all-in one AND does fold down into a compact unit......

    Better quality nets with seperate handles are obviously available(as Harvey has shown in his post)BUT,and I repeat again,this one by Abu does a specific job!!

    Best get yourself to a tackle shop and have a look at them before you buy!!

    Good luck!!
