The Big Gob is a totally new concept in keepnets that incorporates the use of camouflaged netting, this is to stop the net spooking carp when fishing in the margins, as many anglers do these days.
The “Big Gob” name is derived from the uniquely shaped top ring which is designed to aid transfer of fish from landing net to keepnet.
Further features include:
- Full 3m length.
- Internal pull straps.
- Top-notch push button angle lock adjustment.
- Special strong joints on intermediate rings.
- Cushioned rings towards top of keepnet to protect fish.
I have to admit that it is quite while since I have even used a keepnet let only a quality piece of gear such as the Big Gob Camo Keepnet from Middy.
I used to use small top ring keepnets that quite frankly weren't the most fish friendly in the world. Not any more !! The Big Gob has a huge top ring which means you can release your fish directly into the net without fear of damaging the fish, and at 3m long it is more than adequate for even the most prolific bagging waters, designed to keep the fish in top notch condition.
Camo eh !! Well I have to confess that I am not the world's biggest fan of camo gear but I will make an exception in this case ... seeing as I don't have to wear it! If it stops other fish from being spooked when fishing the margins I am all in favour of it, especially as I do a fait amount of margin fishing.
Other quality features of the Big Gob inlcude:
- the push button angle adjuster that enables you to easily angle the keepnet whichever way you want
- internal pull straps that make weighing in a doddle
- the overall sturdy design of the keepnet that should make it last for years
All in all I give the Middy Big Gob Camo Keepnet a big thumbs up. This keepnet just screams "quality" at you and I am certain that it will fast become number one choice of keepnets for match fisherman in the coming months.
