I am looking at getting a new net. I need a bigger one and want one with a long handle. Similar to a guides net. Rubber netting would be ideal and price is not a deterrent. Any good ideas or recommendations?
Well, of course the brodin nets are awesome, and gorgeous. But they're pricey, about $120 for a long handled one, I think. You can get one of the aluminum ones from bass pro or a similar store for about $30, but I've heard from several people they fall apart before they should. It hasn't happened to me yet, but like I said, I know more than one person that it has happened to. That's pretty much all I got.
Thanks Dozer! I really like the Brodin nets and that is what I currently have, but it is a smaller size and I want to bump it up a little. I use a boat net for rivers with big fish, but my bass pro special busted after 15 or so trips. It was a pain to lug around too.
Cochise - I like the idea of cutting it down a little!
Cochise - if you had only seen my boat net from bass pro that I just broke it was a little embarrassing to carry around the stream. That thing could have fit Rickabilly's and Sleestak's FOTY candidates at the same time. ;D ;D ;D
Made here in the good ole USA by Allan Stevens in Maine, individually hand built and varnished - SUPERIOR to Brodin and less cost. Why go mass produced .
I had one made with a birdseye maple handle, but they normally use Tiger Maple for the handle - the 28R would fit the bill nicely for ya, same one i have and fits in by belt nicely plus holds bigger fish great :
I am just curious if any forum members are doing the Mile High 25 fly fishing tournament this weekend? Parental responsibilities kept me from participating this year, but I will be doing it for sure in 2021.
Hi forum friends. I had some fun recording some fly fishing for Carp. I know alot of people think they are trash fish, but I have way too much fun catching them. Still need to get into some big ones on the fly rod, but even the small ones have a surprising amount of stamina. Anyways hope you...
Will be heading to the Yampa between Stagecoach and Catamount In the third week of August. Looking for recommendations.I spend most of my time with a spey or switch rod.Will be bringing both single and 2 handed rods.I would assume a 4W spey or switch and a 5 or 6 W single will be best. Will...
Just published a video aimed at helping those considering taking up fly fishing. Basic 101 kinda stuff ... so likely not going to be anything new and exciting for most on this forum ... but would love feedback and also suggestions on other topics / struggles that everyone goes thru as a new fly...
