A session of fly fishing encourages thoughts of country estates and landed gentry, ghillies and tweed. For many hoping to catch a trout or salmon, we have sorted the best of fly fishing nets on the market that is not going to drain your bank balance.
A premier quality net is without a shadow of a doubt one of the most important pieces of tackle that you can own. Not only is a net the only safe way you can transport your fish from the water to the bank, but owning a good quality net is a vital aspect of fish care.
All the fly fishing nets we stock here at Angling Direct, have been designed by tackle companies who really understand both the needs of the angler and the needs of the fish. We stock nets in a variety of shapes and sizes, so you can pick the perfect net for your needs. Our fly fishing landing nets include rounded and triangular net heads to complement the shape of the fish, thus providing the most support for the fish as you lift it out of the water.
Many of our fly landing nets are manufactured with rubber or latex netting material. This is much for ideal for fly fishing to eliminate snagged hooks as well as lowering the change of smelly water residue penetrating the material. This will be important to those anglers popping a wet net in their car to find it can stink the whole boot out! You can avoid a smelly net by also looking into luggage options such as a net bag.
Additionally, rubber nets are better for fish as they provide less friction, meaning when the fish is in the net and pushing itself against the net material its protective slime and delicate scales are safe from damage. This is perfect for practising catch and release.
The type of handle you have on a fly fishing net is also important. We stock nets with a shorter handle that are designed to fit compactly inside a boat, as well as nets with telescopic handles that you can extend to you ideal length. You can also find on our site folding nets that are convenient for those looking for long-handled trout nets but want the save of transportation space.
