Our sailcloth Crabbing bag is an essential item to take to the seaside this summer! It contains a child friendly drop net and crabbing line.
The bag is made from sailcloth and we offer you a choice of decorating it with a friendly shark, a turtle, a crab or a mermaid in a colour of your choice.
These motifs/patterns are cut out by hand in sailcloth and then stitched onto the sailcloth bag with traditional sailmakers zigzag stitch, using U.V. treated sailmakers thread.
Boys and girls of all ages enjoy the sport of crabbing down among the rock pools or sitting on walls and pontoons.
The bags can also be used for carrying children's bathers, sun cream, water bottle and a sandwich.
The bag is useful for beach combing, storing holiday treasures such as sea glass and shells.
We offer you the choice of colour for the top of the bag and the soft webbing handles:
blue, red or white.
On the back of the bag is sewn our N logo.
Inside the bag is a drop net with weight and a line for crabbing. There is no hook required!
Simply tie the line to the centre webbing handles, place your bait, ideally a piece of bacon, in the bottom of the net and then lower the net into the sea by unwinding the line, and wait.
The crab, attracted to the delicious smell will grab hold of the net. Gently hawl it up, winding the line around the brightly coloured child friendly handle. A catch! You have a beautifully patterned shore crab, ready to place in your bucket of water, ready to release back into the sea later in the day.
Please ensure an adult accompanies the person using this.
Reassuringly, they can be washed and will drip dry very quickly. Handwash at 30 degrees using washing liquid. Rinse. Dry naturally.
