Choosing a fishing net

I’d like to start the review on the topic of choosing a sucker with my purchase, made on the eve of fishing in a shop that is literally next to the house. Already initially aware of the disadvantages and advantages of the sucker I selected, I nevertheless bought it. Firstly, there wasn’t much choice in a small shop on the outskirts, and secondly, this landing net is the most suitable for fishing from the shore, which I will have on the city stream, where you can’t drive by car. One-piece netting with a non-separable powerful frame and a plug handle is already in my arsenal, and I’m going to buy a similar landing net. But this is heavy artillery for catching large fish, mainly carp. It is not particularly necessary to carry it in a non-separable form, since the upcoming fishing will be aimed at the Volga crucian carp, which although it weighs up to 2 kilograms, it does not come across often. In addition, there will be no problem taking that copy that I purchased. Just to peck.

Disadvantages and advantages of the sucker I bought
And now about the disadvantages and advantages of the hooker purchased before fishing, which is shown in the photo. I will comment on the shortcomings and compare with other more powerful devices. The most vulnerable to these Chinese fakes are the nodes of the telescopic handle joints and the assembly unit of the frame. In the first place, they are the ones who “fly”, especially with the transcendental load that occurs when a large fish is caught or when the fish are improperly caught when they begin to catch it with a net, instead of bringing the caught prey to a little net flooded under water. Or when, instead of pulling the fish in the water, they begin to lift it in the air. Some weak nets can not withstand such loads on the first day of fishing. But in general, these nodes can work for quite some time without breakdowns. True, the plastic liners of the joints are abraded. But nothing lasts forever … The telescopic handle made of aluminum alloys is inferior in ease to carbon-fiber handles, but they are too flexible when fishing for large prey, flimsy. In addition, carbon fiber is brittle and does not withstand shock loads. But if you compare the telescopic handle with the plug, then the latter will be more reliable.

Nozzle frame assembly
The assembly assembly of the frame of the sucker is made quite reasonably, but also “flies” during improper or too long operation. Of course, the collapsible frame is inferior in power to the whole frames, but the collapsible frames are too cumbersome to transport if you want to walk along the river with overgrown dogrose and nettle paths with a backpack behind. Here the collapsible frame is beyond competition. She is also lighter.

Net netting
The net of the head of the landing net has a cell measuring 35 mm, where small sinkers with hooks will fall. But it should be noted that usually the most commonly used rectangular feeding troughs are cells that do not fall into this cell. And the hook, caught on the fishing line, easily unhooks, which can not be said about the mesh made of a nylon cord. Here, you can’t unhook without the help of someone’s mother and other appeals and promises somewhere far away … Cloth nets, by the way, are more difficult to wash off fish mucus, smell and dry for a long time. They say, they say, the fishing line on the hoop of the sucker is not as strong as the fabric net. I think this millimeter vein will still survive us. Another advantage of a net from a fishing line with a mesh of 35 mm can be called a freer movement of the hoop of the net under water than with a fabric and finer net, which creates increased resistance when the net is connected to the fish.

Netting shape
The triangular shape of the rim is most suitable for catching large fish, and the smaller one will fall into it without problems. Two arcs are connected into a triangle by a strong steel cable, in contrast to similar weaker sub-netting, where instead of a steel cable, a cord is stretched.

What else can be said about the net I purchased?
Its length is quite suitable for fishing from the shore. Together with the disassembly unit, the length of the handle is 190 mm, and the total length of the landing net is almost 250 mm. All the advantages and disadvantages of the purchased hack presented so far are indicated by external criteria. The practical usefulness of the purchase will show only the upcoming fishing.
