I finally bought a net…

When I started fly fishing a little over a year ago, a net was really just a hypothetical need. It wasn’t like I was catching fish, so why lug around half a kilo of extra weight?

How times have changed. While I’ve continually put off the actual purchase of said net, as the year has progressed, the lack of a net has become a pressing issue. The net has crept up out of the”things that I need” list and for months has been sitting right at the top of the “why the **** dont I have that” list, the “you are an absolute fool man, you would have landed that with a net” list, the “set a reminder in your phone this is getting ridiculous” list…

So I finally bought a net…. Its a good feeling, mainly because nowadays I really need a net…

    Hi Hamish,
    Nice looking net–what brand is it? I rarely carry a net, although I probably should. If I’m going to burden myself with something extra, it will be the wading staff that I’ve made from an op-shop ski pole.
    Cheers,
    Steve

      No brand, it’s an eBay cheapy. While nets aren’t necessary a lot of the time, I really Iike having one of the bigger rivers and lakes 🙂

      Cheers
