Anyone using the "just becoming available" Fox Speedflow Landing Nets yet?
If so, care to give your impressions? They look an ideal one-step down from humping' a large specimen net and pole.

Mm,

will take a look at that when next I'm over there. My large specimen net is not the thing for the roving hunt......and the large sewin/salmon net.....well....it's not so "large" at all when coaxing ol' Esox in!

:wink:

I highly recommend the SPRO big fish net, as the rubber coated mesh means that hooks don't get tangled and it is plenty big enough for any pike. The only down side is the short handle, so you have to be close to the water in order to use it.

If the spro net is not for you have a look at some of the McLean nets on sport fish, the salmon sized ones are big enough for pike and they come with a longer handle.

Ah,

the SPRO net has been discontinued for some time I believe and as you mention Joe, that handle length is a touch restricted. The old' net I still use for all roving sessions is about 23" by 18"....and a bit of a worrying squeeze when the better doubles' come along. Less of a "sweat" with something larger and suited to the mobile style of hunt. Mind you SPRO make bloody good Frogs!

Thank you both for your suggestions.
