The first fish landed by the net

The first fish landed by the net

I recently received the net from Chris. Upon arrival, it rained in deluge proportions for two weeks. It's summer here, and Australia is meant to be a dry country.

When the rivers finally subsided enough, I went fishing. My thoughts on the net as follows:

It is perfect for thick brush scrambling and climbing over dead timber, which is just what I wanted it for.

It still has a very stong chemical odour from the net material. I only notice it when it is open, but I hope this goes soon.

It opens one handed and is easy to use.

It works well as a seine net to examine what the fish are eating.

As the mesh is finer and suited to this purpose, it catches the current a little more and this can bend the net out.

It lands fish of a reasonable size.

Overall rating - 4 out of 5

As age slows my pace, I will become more like the heron.


The hooks are sharp.
The coffee's hot.
The fish are slippery when wet.
