This 12’ x 4’ emergency gill net is used by stretching it across a stream or pond. If there's fish in the water, you're pretty much guaranteed dinner! The Survival Gill Net is an excellent, and in some areas, required form of aviation survival food gathering. Its 1.5" mesh meets current FAA regulations, but is perfect for all survival and wilderness applications and definitely earns a spot in your preparedness kit.
In an emergency, the Survival Gill Net is an essential piece of equipment that will help you overcome harsh survival situations. Simply set the gill net to catch food, while you work on other essentials such as shelter, warmth, other food gathering or medical issues.
Our emergency 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 to the bottom of the river or stream. This saves a lot of frustration in trying to keep the bottom at the bottom. The top rope is made of polypropylene that floats which keeps your gill net upright.
Using the emergency gill net in a large body of water, the net can be anchored by sticks in the water in a circle similar to a fish trap, or the net can be pulled through the water along a shoreline as a seine to collect a group of fish. By closing both ends, the fish are then trapped.
The netting is clear enough to work in both water and on-land situations and is visible enough for the user to see it and avoid getting tangled. This helps in preventing wasting time, energy, and causing potential damage to the net itself!
No water… no problem! The emergency survival gill net is strong enough so that it can be used as a snare or trap for rabbits, partridge, pheasants and other small game.
The Survival Net stretches to meet your needs. If you don't stretch it to its 12 foot length, you will get more height. 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.
This emergency survival gill net is an excellent supplement to any fishing kit. It can be set up and left unattended while time is devoted to building survival shelter, providing medical attention or signaling.
NOTE: This net should be used for survival applications only and is outlawed in most states for sport fishing.
Doesn't use thin or weak lines but rather commercial monofilament lines for added strength. Because of this, it is a little larger than a traditional survival gill net when packaged. However, it even comes in its own mesh storage bag.
The Survival Gill Net construction provides 24 feet of rope, top and bottom, to stretch across a river or stream to a suggested width and depth of 12ft long x 4ft deep. The netting is hung on the diamond, like professional fishing nets to give you a maximum stretch.
This emergency gill net construction allows for flexibility in areas requiring a maximum of a 19 foot net length with only a 2 feet depth. Or the gill net can be stretched to a mere 4 foot length which provides a greater depth of up to approximately 5 feet. The process of adjustment is made by simply placing a knot through the corner of the netting to the rope on the top and the bottom of the net.
This is the best gill net available on the market today!
