A trammel is a 3-walled net and a generally more efficient net for use against a wide variety of fish. The net consists of netting in which a fine-meshed inner net is sandwiched between two outer walls of large meshed netting. The three sheets of netting are attached to a floated headline and weighted foot rope so that all three hang vertically in the water. Slack netting is ensured by setting the net loosely on the head and foot ropes and also by having the depth of the inner net nearly twice the depth of the two outer walls. This way the fish swim through the larger outer mesh and become entangled on a pocket of net.
As well as the fully rigged nets listed below we also sell trammel nets as sheets in ‘kit’ form, meaning that the outer walls are taped on to the inner walls. This means they can be rigged just like a normal gill or tangle net.
