Protect the heaviest fish at all times

Kevin’s original concept of carp mats suspended off the ground reduced dangers during unhooking and handling, now Air Cradles enhance carp care even further.

The base spreads the weight of the carp, ensuring that fish up to 60 kilos remain suspended safely off the ground. Shape and weight distribution makes it an impossibility for a carp to come to harm in an Air Cradle - even the heaviest fish that flaps during unhooking or photography is protected at all times.

Air Cradles use three heavy duty inflatable tubes, two supporting the base material for ground clearance, the third providing a secure area to contain a carp for unhooking and trophy shots.

They inflate quickly using the supplied foot pump and pack down smaller than traditional metal framed cradles. Genius!
