Default Working without a Net (pics)

I got away to the lake this weekend and to my favorite tailwater.My daughter had been at the lake all week with her grandparents and just wanted to stay so i went and we hungout all weekend,but she would not go fly fish with me.That only let me have 2hrs in the morning but i'll take it.Well saturday mornig i went to the river at 5:30 got rigged up and walked down to start, going in to the river i felt my net hang then let loose. I looked and the net was past its last leg.

So i was fishing without a net and that is not easy in tailwater where there is limited access to the bank.

With the fog still on the water i started to pickup some smaller fish on a Lt.Cahill with a green eggsac,this is a great fly on that tailwater.

The fishing was steady and i managed to get about 10 or 12 to hand and lose afew.
With my time getting close i decided to throw a black bugger in a few spots.

It turned out to be a good decision as it produced 3 good fish.

Some nice fish! MnFlyfish is right, duct tape looks like a safe bet to restore some years to that net. I'm going into trout withdrawal, haven't seen a freshwater trout brought to hand in a few weeks...

Shannon: Great trip report and congrats on the beautiful fish! Sorry about the net. Wonder if wood glue would do the trick to save it.

That net appears to be very repairable. If it is a net that you have sentimental attachments to I'd get some to repair it for you. If you can't find anyone and don't mind mailing to me I'd be happy to repair and mail back you. I'm in the Waynesville N.C. area if close enough we could meet ......... Bob

same here.. its getting hot at otter but still seeing a few schooling.. I vote for a cord wrap glued and dunked into sealer.. good as new net.

Great idea! never thought of that, and would look much better than duct tape.

Cord handle would be nice for sure and yes, a little classier looking. You could also put a couple brass wood screws through it. Whatever method, I would definitely start with some Gorilla Glue, then screw it together nice a tight. You could add the rope after that if you wanted the look.
