Will be going to fisheries where there will be big trout.so I'm looking for something durable as well as big enough to cope with the size of fish.seen a snowbee folding net butWelcome to the forum, what's the purpose of the net, stillwater, rivers, streams,
I bought the best net I could then learned it wasn't the most convenient to carry around all day.
Maclean make good nets but depending on the purpose a wooden pan net might be better suited.
Thanks ill check out.Sharpes Gye Seatrout/ large trout size- nothing else comes near. Very light and portable, very strong - well proven design, best one I used to have, had a spike you could push into the bank next to you and strip line into the net.
I have a nice Marryat rigid hooped folding head, with push button extending spring loaded telescopic handle - sadly no longer made, but very high quality though.
I used to do the competition circuit when I was younger and the Gye handled Rainbows to 25 pounds no problem.
I always found the sliding head, much faster and slicker than folding heads
