The Survival Fishing Gill Net is an excellent, and in some areas, required form of aviation survival food gathering. This 12' x 4' emergency gill net is used by stretching it across a stream or pond. It has a 1.5" mesh, and meets current FAA regulations, but is perfect for all wilderness survival applications. Our Fishing Gill Net is constructed to be effective and versatile! The leaded foot (bottom) rope of the gill net acts as the weight to sink the net and the top rope is made of polypropylene that floats. The netting is clear enough to work in both water and land situations, yet visible enough for the user to see it and avoid getting tangled, wasting time, energy, and potential damage to the survival gill net itself! This gill net stretches to meet your needs. Don't stretch it to its 12 foot length, and get more width. This gill net is also a perfect small seine net! Fish that attempt to swim through are caught in the net and can be used for food or bait. It improves on the old style Emergency Gill Net by incorporating a monofilament line as opposed to the weaker string used previously. Because of this, it is a little larger than the traditional survival gill net when packaged. Our gill net even comes in its own mesh storage bag. This is the best survival gill net available on the market today!
