    I've bent a couple of steadfast aluminium bank sticks (which I've had for years) at 90 degrees which suit my keep net needs, they fit in the lockscrew holes in the front of my footplate.
    I always take 2 nets, though I have 3 - I need to learn to fill ONE!!

    Nevertheless mate, can see the value in having them all longways out, thus more compact & closer together!!

    (For those who can fill them lol)

    Compacts are for when you require more nets in front of you in a limited space
    Sorry to hear about your confidence around water so in that case would you not be better catching and releasing them so you dont panic and fall in then that could spoil someone else's day as he wouldn't be able to fish as he could be fishing you out of the water just a thought

    I do fish matches with the local club (knockups) and a major tournament once a year with around 30 anglers

    My confidence or lack of is because of balance and coordination issues (Disability related) and I have been in the water twice so nothing new there

    for 2 nets i use 2 short preston quick release arms on the legs, for 3rd net i use a long arm and it reaches over one of the the other nets(usually my right but depends on my better margin swim, 4th net is again another long arm over the top of the other net...by the time im at my 4th net i get confused when rotating them

    My net has been modified and will be testing it tomorrow at the venue that we are using for the tournament on Friday.

    If it doesn't work I will be purchasing a space saver as per my other post on Fishing Tackle WANTED
