Can anyone help me with the name of suppliers or manufacturer's of a top pocket prawn cast net.
I have already bought 4 nets and have returned all 4.
The pockets are not sewn correctly and keep coming undone.
The brand I had were Sure Cast.
Any help would be appreciated. ???

i dont know a great deal about cast nets but i'm think Sure Cast is one of the cheaper brands that are on the market.

if you cant get an info from these guys (you should cause these guys knows heaps) give your local tackle store a ring

Mates of mine have had cast nets made (top pocket) by a bloke at Redland Bay. As far as details of the bloke go, can't help you.

I always used to get my nets from the certain sporting goods retailer but they all seem to be sh!t quality now.

Its great to watch him throw a perfect cast with one of his 18ft nets (he must be well into his 70's) and you pick it up and fell the reel weight in it :)
