Default Re: Nets: Is there a "best style" ? Like asking for an average size bolt.

I use a wooden one with a cloth net, kind of like the Classic in your links. Well, the cloth net has a seam that runs down the middle of it.

I never thought anything of it until the other day when I caught a smallie and brought him to net. He then spit the fly out in the net and wiggled around, somehow managing to get the fly twisted around and snagged in the seam of the net.

It took me 15 minutes to get that damn fly out of the net, and I still have no idea how I actually did it.

So I would stay away from nets with seams if you could help it.
