Solid frame nets can be used to push weed down. A spoon or circular shape is also easier to net a fish that comes in along the bank. Most carp meshes are quite fine and are difficult to manoeuvre in a current.

The rigidity of a pan met makes it so much easier. I've been using a greys rubber meshed net for piking off my boat and it's great. Makes life so much easier

It certainly only happened once for me. Trying to net my first hants avon barbel was quite an experience. Needless to say my next outing saw me more suitable equipped

A very very underated handle, superb imo, though the adjusting collar can be a bit finnicky at times.

I use a normal 36" v shaped net for barbel, netted them up to 17lb in it with ease

Ha ha, trying to net a barbel with a carp net only happens once! I like the drennen nets and the extendable super specalist extendable landing net handle is fantastic too. I use it carp fishing with a 42'' carp net and it works well for me.

Try holding a 42inch spread block net in a decent flow

And if you're fishing a high bank, it stops you literally dragging a fish up the bank.

A pan net is more manageable in flowing water

Might be silly question but why do river fishermen use a pan net for barbel fishing what is the advantage of using one
