We have taken carp care to a whole new level with the Les Graviers Cradle Mat. We have enlisted the skills and experience of Luke Moffatt from big fish Mecca Les Graviers in France to assist in the development of an unhooking mat that can make the time the fish spends in the anglers company as comfortable as possible.
These unhooking mats are definitely not for the angler on a tight budget but if you truly care about the fish’s welfare whilst on the bank, then this mat is for you!. The basic idea behind the Les Graviers Mat is based around a “no expense spared” development, if it was needed then the mat must have was the mentality from both parties and the finished product illustrates this.
The Les Graviers Mat’s exterior walls and base are manufactured from the same tried and tested hard wearing green material used in the construction of all existing Cotswold Aquarius luggage.
To give the mat its rigid structure, two walls are built using a 30mm thick by 255mm high soft foam inner and Plastazote outer to give rigidity to the walls. The inside of the mat is lined with Cotswolds’ fish friendly rubberised material.
The internal base incorporates 50mm of soft foam with a Plastazote backing to further enhance the protection properties of the mat. Four Velcro fastenings hold the base mattress securely in place to make the mat totally buoyant when on the waters surface.
