Thread: Net Basket

  1. #1

    Default Net Basket

    I am wondering if anyone can help me out here. I am looking at building a net and I have the wood and the tools to do all that but what I cant find is the rubber for the basket. I would like to use the rubber basket since I find it more durable, better on the fish and I don't lose my mind when the hook gets all tangled in it.
    Is there a place that sells it in sheets that I can cut or a place that sells the material for the basket?
    Any help is appreciated.
    Thanks
    Justin

    Justin,I'm afraid you'll only find baskets and not the material to make them

    Why not make the basket out of old fly line?

    Brodin sells whole nets, and they also sell the replacement rubber ghost netting in several sizes.

    Try this: Accessories - Brodin Direct

    Thanks for the help, going to go forward with the project now that I know I can get the basket for the net. I got several boards of Cherry sitting in the garage that will look good on a net handle.

    Thanks
