I Need a Net - Suggestions?
« on: June 30, 2017, 11:59:01 AM »
A new net is needed for wading (smallmouth/trout). My regular wooden trout net is busted to shit after a tough fall a while back. I'm thinking maybe one of those carbon/graphite/fiber composite ones as they'll be a little more durable, I hope. A longer handle is a must and maybe a little larger basket. Suggestions?

Nets another way overpriced fly fishing product -- I've got Broden wooden nets with rubber bags -- best I could do was 10% off --- still way spendy

Check this deal out? Handle too long ? Cut it down?

Too late. Just bought the Fishpond one. Hope they hurry it here.

That didn't take long.

You can't hide money:D Hell, your shipping was more than I paid for my net.

Then I went and attached a $40 fishpond magnet thingy to it. :D
