    Koi net

    Hi All,

    what landing nets do you use in your ponds ? once used do they need to be dipped in any type of solution or just left to dry naturally? in the world of fresh water fishing we use a rubber type of mesh thats meant to be fish freindly, is this suitable for koi,
    thanks Steve.

    Hi Steve,

    Not an angler so not sure what people use for that But I use a pan net and measuring bowl (following the advice of the guys on here) and I must say it is a lot easier to get the little buggers into the bowl. I cant remember the size of mine but it is either 80 or 90 cm. I also have a koi sock but never used that yet.

    Also just leave mine to dry as I am not likely to cross infect my pond with anything nasty as never used it in anyone else's pond.

    Yep, same as craig.
    Pan net and into a bowl nice and easy, if transfering them say into a bowl with medication I would use the sock to move between bowls.
    Also just let the pan net air dry as it's only ever used in my pond.

    Normally left to dry naturally but will dip the nets and sock in a solution of PP when treating the pond.

    90cm shallow pan net here with a very long handle. It's as tall as my house!
    If I have to treat the pond for anything parasitic then I leave the pan net in the pond while the treatment is in there.
    UV light from the sun is quite a good steriliser though so long as things completely dry out and you are only using it in your own system.

    I just bought the 80 cm and 3 mtr pole from here.
    Very good quality and the pole is 3 sections so 1mtr to 3 mtr,pan net.
    Did a thread not so long ago and was going for a norfine net but the handles went the right size for me.
    I can recommend this one from swell nice quality.
    John

    I have to admit that i was quite surprised how "knotty" the koi pan nets are. I haven't done any fishing since the mid 80s but the keepnet i had was knotless meah, to lessen the chance of injuring the fish. I assumed this technology + 30 years advancements would have meant taking the knotless technology into the koi world.

    Till i saw the pan nets we use.

    There MUST be a reason why knotless mesh isnt used for koi?

    Hi AT - Well I have to agree, I am very surprised as well that the fish friendly rubberised net or something a bit silkier is not a preferred net as opposed a standard style mesh....
