if you need to have it be wood.. probably not... $30 is about the lowest on the cheap side... but i got an aluminum one with black rubber netting for $20 from a regional stores website

$30 and you are complaining? In Canada we get screwed for anything you buy pretty much the same wooden net sells for $100-$150

Depends on where you want it made. In the U.S.A. or where?

That looks exactly like the one at Walmart for $19.96.

Yeah, nets are one of those weird items that some companies charge a ridiculous amount of money for. I'm just not the kind of guy willing to spend 80-100 bucks on a fancy wooden net to land fish.

I pretty much just use the cheaper of the ones I can find that pass the laugh test at the store. I've never had any problem with any net I've had other than me losing them from time to time.

I live right on the border. We get the shaft here also, not as bad as you....yet. If I drive South just far enough from the border to make it not easy to shop for you guys, food goes down by half or a third. Unless they have a price marked on it by the maker. Gas is 15 to 25 cents cheaper per gallon. Now they have closed the only gas station on the Canadian side. They have to come across now. And all the reasons they shaft you are coming to the US. It's going to be a bumpy ride.

It is all about the wood. $150 for a teak net really isn't bad when you factor in the cost of the wood.

I'm sure the cost is there, I just won't pay it because I don't care how far away the wood came from on my fishing net.

I would feel the same about a magnesium or beryllium fly rod.
