Re: $2.00 Seine Net
I've said many times......I'll spend serious money on a rod.
But, the most important tool I own, is two dollars of homemade bug net. The sticks I use for making my net are eighteen years old....
(The second most important tool, a thermometer.)
Don't leave home without both.
And, you don't need to know what's in it.
Just take a specimen/crack vial loaded with 90% rubbing alcohol in your vest. ALWAYS!
A large mouth fancy gelato jar is great for skulpins, small crays, Hoppers, etc....
Then, take the bug to the shop when you buy flies.
Don't have to invest brain cells in learning Latin, or the local shop's fly names.....
And one more tip.
If you find a bug in the net, that fish are eating, that has no matching fly at the store......
It's time to learn to tye one up.....that's called, an advantage.
