Default net

I use a fishpond chestpack i use as a sling pack. Problem is the net, if i want to use one there is no place to hang one on the pack. I've tried but it hangs in the water. Has any one solved this problem yet.

I like to fish in a mesh tank top. The advantage is that it doubles as a net as well as a clothing item.

Hahahaha Lancer, great idea. However, as a steelheader, I prefer a longer handled larger net, and the easiest way I've found to carry such a net is to slide the net handle into my wading belt, and the body of the net fits against my back. Works fine with a chestpack, or a chestpack used as a slingpack!

A.J seems to have a good idea, same type of thing I do when I am using my fanny pack.
Not really sure of your set up, but it sounds to me like all you need is a net magnet release.
Something like the many of options available found here. ------------------>



Cheers!

I use a plastic carabiner and hand the net from the back of my wader shoulder strap. Works great and keeps it out of the water.

Default Re: net

I use a carabiner and a magnetic release, hooked to the dring in the back of my vest, but it could easily be hooked to a wader strap - I also use some stretchy cord (i'm worried I am gonna drop the net and the cord keeps it from getting away) rigged so it is about 3 feet long once the magnet is released.
