The Design is Based on Lampara Style Nets used successfully overseas and input from Mike our commercial fisherman with 40 years of fishing with nets experience.
This Lampara Style Piper Bait net is designed to float off the bottom like a curtain and encircle baitfish attracted to the back of the boat by either your boat lights or burly.
Net Can also be used as a Traditional Piper bait dragnet in water less than 2 m deep
This net is only made in a 40m length as it will not work as a Lampara net if made any smaller.
It is designed with extra floats in the middle and has extra depth in middle to create a bag like an effect to hold the fish so they cannot escape.
The net is made with 1inch (25mm) Nylon mesh green 6 ply ( which looks like old fashion cotton but is Nylon)x 100 meshes deep mesh, approx. 2m deep in wings and 3m in the centre and has a heavy lead core rope for the bottom rope. To enable flotation it features large EVA floats on the top rope.
