This drop net is ideal to gather bait (or shrimps and prawns for your tea) while you fish. Made from rot-proof materials, it comes complete with a 9m courlene cord.
If you add a string across the mouth of the net and attach some bait (an old mackerel carcass usually does the business) it should catch plenty of prawns or shrimps or would keep the kids entertained catching crabs. Adding a lead weight to the bottom of the net will keep it firmly on the bottom. Although it would double for landing smaller fish on piers it's not really built to land larger specimens.
