  • What are fishing nets

Fishing nets are the most effective fishing gear. It is with their help that fishers are able to receive a large amount of catch, thereby increasing their own profits. However, choosing a fishing net is not so simple. After all, there are several varieties that offer completely different fishing opportunities.

In our latitudes, two types of networks are mainly used: single-walled and three-walled.

Single Wall Fishing Nets

Single-walled fishing nets are the simplest fishing gear of this type. Only one network is used with cells of the same size. It is equipped with floats (or a floating cord) and sinkers (cargo cord). It is with the help of such elements of tackle that a fisherman gets the opportunity to vary the depth of the network, which allows you to adapt the fishing gear to the surrounding conditions.

Single-walled networks are also called "branchial". They got this name because of the characteristics of fishing. After all, it is the gills that the fish hooks on to the net, one in each mesh. Such a process is called cohesion.

The disadvantage of single-wall fishing nets is their narrow specialization. The mesh size is always the same, which allows you to rely on a catch from a fish of only one size. Basically, the mesh size varies from 14 mm to 100 mm. At the same time, the thickness of the filament should be set to a certain ratio. For fishing small fish it is not possible to use thick strings, but for large ones thin ones. In the first version - this is not effective, and in the second - the catch can be damaged, because the thin fishing line is quite sharp. At the same time, it is easier to tear.

Three-walled networks

This kind of fishing gear is more versatile. It consists of three network channels. One piece - a single-walled network in the center, which is designed to catch small fish. And two robes that are attached to the side. With their help, special “pockets” are created where large-sized fish gets into and gets entangled in them.

Installing a three-walled network is much more difficult, so a beginner should start by using a single-walled network. But in other aspects (flint length, mesh step, etc.), all the basic principles that are characteristic of a single-wall network are preserved.
