For Koi handling, we have the professional's choice for Koi Nets and telescopic poles.
Of course one essential piece of equipment has to be a Net to enable you to catch your Koi, quickly and safely without causing too much stress and damage to the Koi itself ..
Generally, but of course it does depend on the size of your own pond, the largest net head you can manage with is always going to be the best bet.
A note on the handle or pole that is of course, part of the net .. and it is very important that when you do choose a net that you pay attention to the handle .. this has to be strong enough to not only drag the net head through the water, which in its own right, puts tremendous strain on the handle, but it has to be strong enough to hold the Koi safely once you have netted it..
These AquaForte Koi Nets are very high quality, the net is screwed to the telescopic handle. Black anodized aluminium handle is adjustable from 1.6 m to 3 m. The clever thing is the Net is fitted inside an aluminium ring which prevents it from damaging.
If you examine any other manufacturers nets and then compare them to these nets, you will see the main, and most important difference, which is the clever 'riffling' of the metal net frame and the cord that is used to lash the actual net to the frame lays inside this 'riffling' making it almost impossible for you to wear the net out when, as we all do, we run the net along the bottom or the sides of the pond, or tank.
