    Perfect for a lady fisher! - 3/17/2014
    By: from Hot Springs, AR

    As a woman fisherman, I found this particular net to be perfect for my smaller physique and build. Being of smaller physique, I need a lightweight net that I can get into the water, around my fish, and back out again with out having too much trouble, or running the risk of losing my fish/grip. I've lost a few nets to the river because I can't hold onto a heavy net. Now I don't have to worry about it (unless I catch the monster fish, in which case I'll just have to man up and get it in the boat). The Brodin Catch & Release Ghost Rubber Net weighs less than most, and therefore is all that easier for me to use when I catch my really big fish! Along with being lightweight, the Brodin Catch & Release Ghost Rubber Net is also very durable. I've caught some really big fish, and this thing can keep up with me. That's exactly what I need! I don't have to work at keeping it from snagging on crud, flies, or rings either. Plus, I love the fact that I can have it engraved with my initials! I will definitely be getting more of these as presents for my fellow-fisher friends and family! If you enjoy having great equipment that will last forever, and never fail you, then this is the net for you.

    Excellent fishing gift - 1/3/2014
    By: from Asheville, NC

    I gave this net as a Christmas gift and it was loved! The initial engraving was perfect and the net looks incredible and does its job too. Just as expected orvis processed the net with the engraving very fast and the customer service was orvis quality. Great net that will last forever and look good too.

    30" net - 9/15/2013
    By: from Worcester, MA

    I bought this net at the recommendation of the salesman in the Orvis store -- rubber being better for fish and less likely to catch your hooks. I bought the 30" net, and it has worked exactly as advertised. The long handle makes it easy to get the fish into the net and I have not yet had a problem with hooks getting caught in the net (in 6 months of frequent fishing). My only complaint is the metal peg in the base of the handle that attaches to a gear keeper ring has pulled out from the wood. It appears to be held in place only by friction. I was able to tap it back in, but I no longer rely on it and instead tuck the handle of the net into the belt of my waders. With the 30" net, the handle is long enough that it stays in place and in easy reach for when I need it.

    Classic Wooden Net - 8/31/2013
    By: from Taos, NM
    Top 1000 Contributor

    It would be easy to say this net is beautiful and I love it, but there is more to consider. I have lost a net previously that simply became disengaged from it's magnet. No matter how great the net, if it goes floating down the river you may not catch it. However, this is a classically designed wooden net and the magnet system sold by Orvis will do a good job of securing the net. Don't let the securing system be to cause of loosing this classic net.

    Great fishing net - 5/29/2013

    I recently purchased this net and loved it. Prior to this I had a net with mesh netting and both the fly and the fish would get tangled. The rubber net is tangle free and is much healthier for the fish. I purchased the bow net which is a great size to hike with.
