Hi. Received my landing net today. Just like to say thanks. It’s brilliant. I always aspired to have cb gear and just when I thought I had your full range along comes the low line system lol. Think another order will be coming in to you soon. Again thanks for a great service and real quality products – Mark
It’s not very often these days where you experience genuine excellent customer care and service. One such recent occurrence was dealing with Kent based custom carp tackle manufacturer Chris Brown. Anyone who knows fellow long standing BCSG member Chris will be familiar with his quality landing nets and rod rest systems spanning many decades👌 I bought a glass CB 42” net with some Delkim Optonics in 1985 and used it for many years until I stood on the end of one of the glass arms at Ashlea pool, Glos. and had to convert it to 36” arms for stalking. I was thinking recently if they still made the glass 42” arms? Be nice to use again. A quick e-mail to Chris and a very fair price was sent by return and very quickly some arms and a new black mesh net was sent back to me after a quick call confirming all had been despatched. The green mesh here is my old one as it has been swapped off of my syndicate net to use with my new arms/old pole.
Thanks very much Chris and CB tackle, that’s why you are a quality company for over 4 decades! Well done and thank you. Thoroughly recommend to anyone thinking of treating themselves to a new landing net – Damien
Still the only pod I use after all these years. Great Pod. Already have the cross bars, stage stands etc
Great products Chris that stand the test of time with flying colours – Gerry
Class products, even better customer service. If you want a solid and reliable fishing net then look no further – Rhys
Been carping for 40 years plus. Recently converted to cat fishing. Soon became apparent that it was extremely difficult to get big cats into a 52″ standard carp net. They have the ability to select reverse gear and back out. Whilst fishing Office Lake in Notts i saw a Chris Brown catfish net propped up. It stood out as a purpose designed net ideally suited to the task in hand. Quite clearly a stand out product in terms of design and quality. I have always wanted a collapsable carp net similar to the fold down trout nets. Could never get anyone to design and make one for me. Carp 20 to 30 you can just manage in a conventional net without collapsing it. Cats are a different challenge due to their length and weight.
I rang the phone number on the cat net and asked to speak to the designer, Chris Brown. I explained that I wanted one of his cat nets but in a collapsing roll down format. (no more lost spreader blocks or a net in pieces when another rod goes off)
Chris accepted the brief purely as an engineering challenge to see if it could be done.
Within a couple of weeks I had 4 prototypes delivered. They exceeded all my expectations and did not need any alterations. The gloves are now off. I have landed cats to 65lb in them and have collapsed the net, rolled down to the fish and then carried them to the unhooking mat in the net. This must be more fish friendly than gloving them out and up the bank.
So what is better than having a Chris Brown TFB net in your swim, two of them.
It is rare to get a quality product that does more than it says on the tin and exceeds all your expectations especially when the concept was talked through by phone. I personally think the design and quality are world beaters – Peter
I just want to thank you so much for my new Landing Net. It was exactly what I wanted and to be Handmade it England by such a skilled craftsman, i’m sure it will last me for many years to come. I just hope the Fish will be proud sitting in the Bottom of this net, that’s if i’m lucky enough to catch them first that is! – Rodney
That’s awesome thank you – cant believe it but broke my original 21 year old landing net a few weeks ago in a freak accident ☹! Thanks as ever for the top class service! – Alistair

The landing net is perfect and just what I’ve been looking for – won’t be buying nets from anywhere else anymore! Keep up the good work – Rod
Love mine, these are bulletproof, use the goal posts with parallel bars, or single sticks and also stage stands. Can’t fault them, won’t be changing anytime soon – Nick
Received order with thanks. Nice to see all the bits fit the rest of your stuff that I’ve had for donkeys years. Still the most reliable and logical system on the market – Dick
Just to say thank you, and let you know that i received the items for my buzz bars. It’s nice to know there are people like you around. I have always been amazed at the quality of your products, and many, many years of constant use, without any problems whatsoever, says it all – John
The landing net arms arrived today. They are absolutely awesome thank you. Thanks and praise to Chris, a top quality product! – Peter
Had first chance to set the bars up last night and fit alarms etc. Totally blown away with the design, quality and ease of use. Alarms fitted and aligned with no stress at all and the set up looks the business. Can’t wait to use in anger on the bank – Mark

The Chris Brown 42” Carp landing net with 9’ handle
Been using this carp net for over 30 years now and I’m still using it during my sessions in Holland.
In the course of time I bought a second net, because I was afraid Chris would retire at some point and his landingnets wouldn’t be available anymore. As his website proves, I’m happy to see that Chris is still going strong! Only when fishing in France I take both nets with me in case of mishap (which happily never ocurred).
On several occasions I even needed to use the second landing net, having double runs! But that only happens in France! I have some vague remembrance of having double runs in Holland, but that’s ages ago…..
During the years I’ve seen other manufactorers’ landing nets, but was never ever tempted to buy one as they all failed the quality of the Chris Brown nets. What I like about the CB net is the overall sturdyness, the strong – not bending – (fibre glass) handle and arms and the excellent quality of the net itself, which is not to deep nor to shallow. All the nets from other companies I’ve seen through the years have this horrible bend in the handle and most of the times also in the net arms……like it’s gonna break any minute ☹ arggghhhh.
The CB landing net is solid and light enough for one handed operation and easy to manoeuvre. In over 30 years of carpfishing it has never let me down!
Thanks Chris and my compliments for your product!
So if anyone has doubts when buying a (new) landingnet, don’t look any further – buy a Chris Brown.
From a very satisfied customer from Holland.
Just to say I had received my eel net from you – what brilliant service and what a lovely bit of kit – just what I have been looking for ! It’s design and finish are outstanding and I will be putting up a post on the eel anglers forum saying so. many thanks once again – Simon
I’ve been using your rod rest systems for many many years now. I posses many of your products, 4 different lenghts of banksticks, the single bar rodpod and 2, 3 and 4 rod buzzerbars. All of these are still going strong and I’m still extremely happy with these superb products – Rik
Just received the landing net and am very impressed by the build quality and the stiffness of the arms. It’s my net for France and if I have a brace of fifties again at the same time I reckon they will both fit in – Kevin
Just received the landing net, must say I am most impressed.
The net is lightweight and easy to handle. I cannot wait for the weather to warm up and the catfish to wake up so that I can put the net (hopefully) to the test.
I would not be surprised if more people at the lake will like what they see as well! Maybe a few more orders may come your way.
Will let you know how I get on – Brian
I was over the moon with my new “Big Tench” landing net handle and head when it arrived today. Not only a great bit of kit but delivered well before I had expected too. Huge thanks for the effort and for the workmanship – Chico
I fish for specimen Eels and yesterday i received the Big eel specialist net that I ordered from you. I am over the moon with this net and it’s just the net I have been looking for. It must be the best net out there for the specimen Eel angler so a thumbs up and a big thank you from me – Steve
I recently contacted yourselves regarding some damaged/worn out bank sticks which I purchased a number of years ago regarding repair or whether they were lifetime guaranteed. You replaced them no questions asked.
I would just like to thank you very much for the superb service I received as always. However it’s going to take me a while to wear the replacements in as they look so new.
Just received my 3 rod system and would like to say its brilliant – well made – light – excellent value for money just what i wanted.
Chris, Melton Mowbray
I am so over the moon with my 42″carbon net and 6ft pole that i would like to order another as a gift.
