The Chris Yates Landing Net, limited edition in new, unused condition c2015

This is from our last ever batch of these beautiful and functional all bamboo nets, of which a total of about a dozen were made over a twenty year period.

The Chris Yates net, as used by himself, has a 7' circumference, measuring 30" by 25", and is big enough for the hoped for monster.

The hand-planed flame tempered laminated Tonkin bamboo frame is fitted with a hand tied knotless mesh which has no seam at the bottom, so it expands to accommodate the fish.

The 1" mesh size allows the free passage of water, thus reducing drag.

The specially machined and profiled brass block is engraved with the maker's details, and polished to a high finish. It is secured to the frame with flush-fitting stainless steel screws.

The 6' detachable handle is made from seasoned, tempered and bored-out Tonkin bamboo. It is straightened, beautifully mottled, and impeccably varnished.  There are brass fittings at each end, with a rubber button fitted to the butt.  The handle comes in a fitted bag with a hanging loop and like the rods, each net is issued with a signed certificate of ownership.

Price: £1,200
