A couple of weight lifting weights 2.5 kg should be plenty. Use a milk plastic bottle as a float

Check out Timmy's Carpboat Products on Facebook. He's a Dutch guy that sells anchorpoles (ankerpaal). You screw them into the bottom and there's rope and a float connected. Your boat won't go anywhere. Ofcourse you can always make one yourself. As far as netting is concerned, have you thought about buying a two-piece net?

I'm not trying to teach people how to suck eggs but worth mentioning, always make sure the fishes head is heading the same way as the boat if you bring the fish back to the bank in the water, bringing them in backwards forces the water the wrong way over the gill rakers basically the same effect as someone drowning.

As Liam said in post 4 you could always have a deep mat in the boat if your not happy with them in the water.

I tend to lift the netted fish into a high sided unhooking mat inside the boat for bringing fish back to the bank.

For an anchor as Gerry says you can make one but they're cheap enough off flea bay
SAND ANCHOR you can fill the bag with rocks etc.

As for clamping the net to the boat pretty difficult with an inflatable, two quick clamps on a solid boat is probably what you have seen it's what I do at Rainbow with the solid boats but on an inflatable I just break the landing net put the arms just over the rowlock and clamp it with my knee, you can clamp it to the seat but ideally you need a clamp front and back to stop it twisting.

I picked up some Barbell cast iron Weight Plates from a carboot a eyed bolt and penny washers turned them into superb mud weights
and the 2.5kg ones make brilliant marker pole weights too

Iím after a couple of bits for my inflatable zodiac.

1 - some form of anchor to put in the margins with a float on it so I can keep it off the margin rocks

2 - I struggle getting a fish back to the bank holding the net but I have seen some people strap the net to the sides of the boat. How is this done? Purpose straps?

Iím fairly new to the boating scene so I havenít quite refined everything. Any help is appreciated 👍
