    Perfect - 7/21/2014

    Does exactly what the discription says. No magnets to fuss with. Easy for people with limited shoulder movement to use. Walked through a sage brush flat and into little willows and it held net nice and high. Cable extends more than enough to reach fish and cable mechanism is very smooth. Going to buy one for my wife. Great stocking stuffer especially you get a Orvis net!

    The gear keeper net retractor worked as advertised. Holds the net in place and allows easy retrieval of net for netting fish. Strong and durable product.

    Excellent tool! - 6/24/2014

    I tried it yeasterday and it works great. I love the lock button also . This simplifies the usage of my net and allows me to capture salmon or trout much easier.

    Works Great - 6/19/2014

    I have 2 bad shoulders so reaching back to re-connect my net to my vest has always been difficult. This product eliminates the problem. The cord streches long enough for netting fish.and returns to its origional length after use....great product. The wading staff tender also works well.

    I used the net retractor for the first time recently. It worked well. It has a nice, long extension so that I could easily net fish. It seems sturdy and well-built. All in all, I am pleased that I purchased this particular product.

    Highly Recommended ! - 4/7/2014
    By: from Tampa, Florida

    I've tried all types of net systems. I have a break-away right now that works OK, but it requires reconnecting the catch. I've tried other retractable lines, but they wear out quickly. This is the strongest one I've seen and I highly recommend it.

    Very strong - works as advertised! - 4/1/2014
    By: from Charlotte, NC

    Couldn't find anything locally, Charlotte, NC area, that was strong enough to hold my net up without getting tangled in my feed and dragging the ground. Ordered this from Orvil and must say it works advertised!

    I have been looking for the right net keeper system for years, and this is it. It allows you to reach out for a fish, where other systems wont. When you're done with the net, it zips right back into place and out of the way. No searching for a magnet. Plus, you can lock it in place while you're hiking through the woods, so no more lost nets somewhere in the brush!
