    Koi nets

    As my old net is rotting am looking for a new one.
    Looked on Norfine site and most seem to be pan nets,they look quite shallow but are they ok for catching koi?
    Dont want to spend mega bucks but what do you guys use?

    Yes, I have one, its very good, it is shallow but I haven't had any issues catching fish, I saw them being used when I went to Byer koi farm last year, so I decided to get one myself

    Thanks Roy,are they only a couple of ins deep or more?
    I find it hard to imagine a fish staying in the net if very shallow.

    Yes they are only about 3 to 4 inches deep but the fish do stay in to be honest

    When I go out to the pond i'll take some pictures of the net with something in it

    Agree with Roy.

    I had exactly the same reservations as you but it is SO much easier to catch them in a Pan net than a normal net and then just tilt the bowl and they swim straight in.

    Obviously pan nets aren't meant for lifting them out of the water, just for guiding them.

    Caught my Sanke the other day and she was so calm in the pan net that I didn't bother transferring her to the bowl, and just scraped her while she was in the net.

    I appreciate we all know how to catch our Koi.... but this video is still quite good to watch:

    Thanks for the replies folk.
    Good catch that Roy,is that a norfine and what size is that one?
    No I dont lift them out of the water in a net,use a sock,once tried to lift one with my hands and the koi was wriggling all over the place so I dont do that any more.
    Looks like a pan net it is.
