IT IS rare for a land­ing net to come sup­plied with a han­dle and it is usu­ally an item that will have to be pur­chased sep­a­rately. The first fac­tor to con­sider when pur­chas­ing a han­dle is its length. The ma­jor­ity of plea­sure/match han­dles range between 2m and 4m. If you mainly fish with a pole you’ll prob­a­bly want a han­dle at the longer end of this range be­cause the less ship­ping in of your pole you have to do will make land­ing fish quicker and eas­ier. You should also look at how many sec­tions a han­dle con­sists of. The han­dles we’ve looked at this month range from two and four pieces. Some will have mul­ti­ple screw thread sec­tions so the han­dle can be fished at var­i­ous lengths.
