Hi folks,

 

It is that time again where I need to replace my barbel net. I am looking for a deep pan style net as the one I have been using hasn't been as deep as my previous one and it is a pain to lift fish up banks etc. Any suggestions based on experience?

Can't say i use a pan net when barbelling. i find it much easier to carry a 28" speci net rolled up and stuffed in my quiver.

 

I did buy a new shallow pan net a couple of season back for general fishing and went for my first rubberised one and I do like it. You don't get your rigs tangled in it or tangled in the bankside vegetation as much or as bad, they also dry quicker and don't smell as much.

Not smelling as much would be a nice plus lol. I am after a pan as I also use it for other types of fishing. I clip mine onto my rucksack with carabiners so it is really easy to carry.

The Korum Latex folding spoon nets are pretty good, I use one myself.
