Fastnet Salmon Gye Landing Net

"Having used the Fastnet Salmon Gye Landing Nets for the last two seasons on the famous Park Beat, we highly recommend this net for any salmon angler; light, strong, and very comfortable to use with confidence. Believe me, these nets have been put through some testing times over the last two seasons, without any problems what so ever."

Product Design

ALUMINIUM ALLOY

Both the rim and shaft are manufactured from aluminium as it is extremely versatile and the world’s most abundant third most common element comprising 8% of the earth’s crust. It has a unique combination of properties which combine lightness, strength, durability, and corrosion resistance. A wide range of alloys are available to exploit these properties to the full yet we have gone a step further and designed a unique alloy that provides the best strength-to-weight ratio for each Fastnet landing net design.

WHY AGE HARDENED AND TEMPERED?

Your landing net rim and shaft are put through a heat treatment process to age-harden and temper the aluminium. As aluminium gets stronger as it gets older this stimulates the ageing process to the point of maximum strength.

WHY THE DIAMOND & HEXAGONAL SHAPE?

When landing your catch pressure is applied to specific areas of the rim and shaft. The alloy is designed to withhold pressure in these areas whilst remaining lightweight.

WHY THE ANODISED AND NON ANODISED FINISH?

Aluminium responds well to a variety of finishing methods; each provides an attractive and highly durable finish. Many Fastnet shafts are anodised to provide added protection against oxidisation and to create a sleek finish. The salmon net shafts are the only exception to this rule as they take a lot more punishment. Oxidisation takes many years to manifest therefore a properly cleaned and stored landing net will last a lifetime.

NYLON GLASS TOUGHENED RESIN COMPOSITE KNUCKLE

Despite initial appearances this is not made from "plastic"! All knuckles and other key components are manufactured from nylon glass toughened resin, the very best composite mix of materials, ensuring exceptional strength. Another benefit to this design is that it significantly reduces net bag snagging. Each knuckle is custom moulded for each style of landing net.
