Choice of landing net for fishing
I would like to start the review on the choice of landing net with my purchase, made on the eve of fishing in a small shop, which is literally next to the house. Already initially aware of the disadvantages and advantages of the podsachek chosen by me, I nevertheless bought it. Firstly, there wasn’t much choice in a small shop on the outskirts, and secondly, for that fishing from the shore, which I have to do on a city river, where you don’t come by car, this landing gear is most suitable. One-piece podsachek with a folding powerful frame and a plug handle is already in my arsenal, and I am also going to purchase a similar landing gear. But this is heavy artillery for catching large fish, mainly carp. There is no special need to drag it towards you 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, is not often caught. In addition, the fact that I purchased, to take such a copy will not be problems. If only pecked.

Disadvantages and advantages of the landing net I bought
And now about the disadvantages and advantages of the sub net acquired before fishing, which is presented in the photo. I will comment on the shortcomings and compare with other more powerful devices. The most vulnerable are these Chinese fakes knots of the telescopic handle and assembly assembly of the frame. First of all, it is they who “fly”, especially under extreme load, which happens when large fish is caught or when fish are not properly raised, when they begin to catch it with a landing net, instead of bringing the caught prey to a landing net that is slightly submerged under water. Or when instead of pulling up the fish in the water, they begin to lift it through the air. Some weak landing nets do not withstand such loads on the first day of fishing. But in general, these nodes can work for quite a long time without breakdowns. True, plastic liners are rubbed off. But nothing lasts forever … A telescopic handle made of aluminum alloys is inferior in lightness to carbon-fiber handles, but those are too flexible when drawing large prey, flimsy. In addition, carbon fiber is fragile and does not withstand shock loads. But if you compare the telescopic handle with the plug, the latter will be more reliable.

Assembly node of the landing net frame
The assembly assembly of the sub-landing frame is quite reasonable, but it also “flies” when used improperly or for too long. Of course, the collapsible frame is inferior in power to solid frames, but non-collapsible frames are too bulky during transportation if you need to walk overgrown with wild rose and nettle trails along the river with a backpack behind you. Here collapsible frame out of competition. In addition, it is easier.
The net of the head of the net net has a cell of 35 mm in size, where small weights with hooks will fall. But it is necessary to take into account that rectangular feeders-cells are usually used most often, and they will not fall into this cell. And the hook hooked on the line is easily unhooked, which cannot be said about the net made of nylon cord. Here, it happens, you can not unhook it without the help of someone’s mother and other calls and sendings somewhere far away … The cloth nets, by the way, are harder to wash off fish mucus, they smell and dry for a long time. They say, they say, the fishing line on the hoop podsachek not as durable as a mesh cloth. I think this millimeter vein will still survive us. Another advantage of the 35 mm mesh with a mesh of 35 mm is the free movement of the hoop of the sub-net under the water than with a cloth and smaller mesh, which creates increased resistance when the sub net is applied to the fish.
Sub net form
The triangular shape of the rim is most suitable for large fish, and of course, small ones will fail without any problems. Two arcs are connected in a triangle by a strong steel cable, unlike similar weaker landing nets, where a cord is stretched instead of a steel cable.

What else can be said about the landing net I acquired?
Its length is quite suitable for fishing from the shore. Together with the disassembly assembly, the handle length is 190 mm, and the total length of the landing net is almost 250 mm. All presented advantages and disadvantages of the purchased landing net are still marked by external criteria. Practical utility of the purchase will show only the upcoming fishing.
