    Default landing net for canal lure fishing

    Hello,

    I am currently just getting a bit of gear together to try my hand at lure fishing on the Shropshire Union canal. I have got most of the important bits, however I could use some recommendations for a suitable landing net/handle combo.

    I will be ultra light lure fishing, targeting perch, but there are pike in the stretch, so a few of them might come along.

    I want something portable, light, handle wont need to be too long. Plus, what size net should i be looking for, with the likelihood that the odd jack pike will be be caught?

    Any advice, or recommendations based on what you use, would be great.

    Thanks.

    When I’m roving with lures for Perch and Chub I use the folding Wychwood landing net in the pic below which includes an extendable handle, and is large enough for the occasional smallish Pike and small enough to clip onto the back of my waistcoat.

    But beware of losing the locking pin when not in use as it is possible for it to be removed.

    I’ve had it a few years now so there may be a later model.

    I use Korum opportunist 1.8m telescopic handle, the handle is only 55cm long when not in use which make it easy to transport with a carry strap in its needed

    As for a net head again it a Korum 26” folding triangle net which comes with a stink bag thats bigger nought to put the net & handle in together

    I should have added that I don’t have a specific net for when I’m roving a river lure fishing but I do have a specific handle, that being a Daiwa ISO telescopic handle which I can highly recommend. From my limited experience I have realised a deepish net is advisable, jack pike do like to thrash around.

    I use one of these nets as above. From memory its the larger size but the smaller one would be ideal for perch and jacks. This photo appeared earlier in HDYGO.

    I bought one of these from local decathlon store for £24. Use it for most of my lure fish where possible.

    I have this one that I've been using for about 2 years now. It's quite ok.

    "Street n Rock " EPUISETTE STREET & ROCK - MANCHE ISO DAIWA 410 + TETE PAFEX 50 - Des Poissons Si Grands

    It's a catch-and-release net from Pafex, on a sliding handle. The handle can be purchased separately. Very, very lightweight.

    The model I have is the longest handle, and I can tell you it saved me when fishing from high banks. Now, you don't have to extend it when the fish is close to you.

    Daiwa ISO handle:





    This one is a very similar product:
