I like to net gummies

Sun, 2020-12-20 22:36

Sick of dropping them trying to grab them by the tail .....current net is standard size and just too small even too small for a really good snapper I lost the other day as it just wouldn't fit

LJ what a great offer

If I knew where to source a good frame.  Southside have let me know that they have a collapsible XL and I will drop in tomorrow and check it out.   the collapsible element is appealing IF it is large enough.   May you and your family have a great Christmas, was hoping to see a photo from you with the first of the new seasons dhu ?

 Gordon, I do the same with the Gummies etc we catch. Makes them so easy to handle in the net.

Mate I have an enviro  net here that will do the job it's approx 600 x 600 and nice and deep.

It's all yours if you want it, no charge. Least I can do with the advice you've helped me with in the past. Let me know.

Andy, thanks so much for the offer

Mon, 2020-12-21 14:29

What a truly great site this is .....I have a 600 x 600 and it is just too small, lost a pb snapper whilst chasing gummies recently that was well over a metre, (only wanted a photo as it was closed season) ....it just wouldn't fit and by myself trying to handle rod and net made it an impossible task.   Top hook snagged the outside of the net and one flip by the fish and the 20lb leader broke.   Thanks again and have a great Christmas, I assume you are heading to Seabird so good luck

Go the big environet

 We use it for everything, including toothy stuff we want to release. You'd get a metre -plus snapper in no problems
