Efgeeco landing nets.

Post by LuckyLuca » Fri Sep 01, 2017 11:33 am

I was lucky enough to find an Efgeeco net head stuffed into the corner of a charity shop this morning.

This one has 32” arms. I also have one with 24" arms. Does anyone know what sizes were available?
I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete.

Thanks Wal, although is sounds like there may have been a 42" also.
The search for a suitable mesh begins!

I still use my 42 inch Efgeeco Specimen net bought from new but it weighs a ton although it still does the job

My Efgeeco landing net handle from the early 70s (green tube with black handle and that peculiar hook shaped arrangement to hold the extension tube in place) is now too heavy for me to use one handed so I've replaced it with one of these https://www.decathlon.co.uk/fishing-lan ... 90764.html. I'll be putting it up for sale in the next few days, the original net spreader and frame are still around somewhere and I'll throw that in as well if I can find it.

Pretty sure Efgeeco also did a 42 inch Apex net which was somewhat lighter than the Speciman net.
