    Default Net question .. maybe a poll thread ?

    Where do you hang your net while fishing (not in a boat ...) ?

    Belt loop of some sort ?

    One of the magnetic doo-hickeys that hang it on your back, still in reach?

    Having tried my first foray into the wild of Fly Fishing yesterday ... net was a problem ... carry .. tucked under the arm, put it down .. try not sto step on it, etc etc etc ...

    Soooooo, whatcha all have as a favorite method ?

    Are the Magnetic hangers that reliable ?

    Thanks!

    I usually attach it to the ring on the back of my vest, or my backpack if I'm carrying it.

    If I'm "going light" and just taking what I can fit in my pockets, I'll hang it around my neck. I tried it hanging from my belt loop but kept getting tangled up.

    I just tuck mine under my wading belt behind me.

    Mine has a permanent place in my closet at home... I never use a net. The closest I ever get is the stripping apron on my float tube. milt.

    I decided long time ago that carrying a net was bad luck

    The rare times that do use one, it's attached to the D rind on the back of my vest with a bungie lanyard and a 'french clip'

    Mine is clipped with to the D-ring on the back of my vest. I have a couple snap rings attched to it so whether wading on the toon or in the tube I can always clip it to something so as not to lose it... I have a problem losing nets... but when not in use it always lives behind me and out of the way...

    I have three really nice nets but have not carried one since 2005 and then only a few times. When I do take one it is a small narrow Brodin for little fish (they are hard to handle) and I have a magnetic clip for it. I clip it with the bow up and handle down to keep it out of the brush and make it easy to reach back and grab by the handle.

    I'll go back and enter magnetic clip because all three have one attached to the bow.

    Anywhere can be the land of great expectations, broken dreams, or paradise found, it's all up to you.

    I have never used a net. It always seemed to me to be a fairly large, clunky item to be carrying around.

    Two season ago. I started to fish with a fixed length line system. One of the advantages (other than just being fun) is that fish, both medium/large and small are brought to hand very quickly. They are very fresh and very hard to control if they can't be easily shaken free from the hook.

    Another part of the appeal of a fixed length line system is the ability to travel and fish light, very light. Last thing I wanted to lug was a net. I recalled an idea I had previously seen, a mesh mitt.

    Long story short, my beloved better half sewed one up, and it works great! Light and easy to carry, use, and very effective. I drape it over my wader belt and never know it's there until I need it. For some reason the fish (large and small) seem to relax more when cradled in the mesh than when cradled in a bare hand.

    The magnetic doohickies are very strong if you get the right one. I prefer the one made by May Fly. I had an Orvis one that was not as strong as the May Fly brand.
