can anybody please recommend a cheap unhooking mat for me -i don't want to spend a bomb- i don't need a massive one i need one because on the part of the river i fish, the bank is very dusty and uneaven.

i wondered if those mats that you kneel on for gardening be used for the time being or can they damage the fish???

(its for chub of around 2/3lb)

Thanks,

andy

Hi RuddyRoach, aren't you lucky, catching 2-3lb chub.

I think you might find for a cheap unhooking mat try a sheet of neo-prene that you can get from camping stores, normally used as a "mattress" under a sleeping bag, you won't need all of it, and you may have to peg it down, to stop it blowing away or curling up.


catch you later, tight lines, dave....

if you lived a little nearer, I would give you one as I have quite a few lying around. From memory they dont cost very much at all.

13.99, icarpd...., you were done mate!! I paid about 8 for a Shakespeare one that big enough for a family of four!! Can't find the catalogue now, but it was from Mullarkey's Direct. I actually ordered a smaller one at the time, but it was out of stock so they sent the big one instead.
