Fly fishing cannot be complete without a fishing net. Without the net, the fish might break your tippet and increases the risk of losing a tremendous catch. Many people underestimate the need for fly fishing nets until they miss the big fish. Many fishers will agree with me that the day you do not carry the net is when the giant fish will show up. I don’t know how, but it happens all the time. The safest thing to do so far is to acquire the best nets and carry them every day you go fishing. In this article, we are going to look at some of the considerations you should make when buying a new net. Read on.
When I talk of size, I mean the length and width. You cannot buy any net without looking at the size. Among the factors that determine the right size of fishing net include, the big fish, little fish, drift boating, float tubing, pontoon boating, and wading. If you fish in different fashions, you might need to buy two types of nets. If for instance, you use the drift boater, you might need to use the long-handled net. This type of net is not easy to store, but it will catch you the best fish. A good net helps a lot when removing the hooks and photographing the fish.
This is another important consideration in the purchase of a fish net. If you are thinking of using your dad’s old net, it might not serve the purpose. The net bag technology has been upgrading over time. Some companies are now producing pure rubber net mesh. Such nets are good looking, and they protect the caught fish. The rubber nets, however, have a disadvantage in that they are heavy depending on how deep you throw them.
Cost cannot be left out in the purchase of goods and services. It is essential to stick to your budget and cut your coat according to your cloth. We have the most expensive nets in the market and the affordable ones. One thing we must agree on is that the cost is subjective and people will have a different definition of what is good. That said, ensure that you get value from what you are willing to spend. At times you might be required to pay more, but this should only happen if you are getting a better quality fly fishing net.
