Nomad Nets are constructed with carbon fiber/fiberglass composite material. The result is a very lightweight and durable net. Nomad Nets are built for the conditions that prevail where great fishing exists; they are waterproof, UV protected, and float like a cork. All Nomad Nets come standard with a rubber bag.
The now legendary Nomad Net needed a bigger basket for the boaters. The Nomad Mid-Length Boat delivers it, along with a mid-length handle that makes stowing away a breeze. After you've released that catch, of course.
This is an operator's net - if the CIA had a fly fishing division this would be standard issue. Perfect dimensions - not too big to wade with at all if that is a concern.
I use this net whether I am wading or in the boat. It takes a beating, super lightweight, and holds 20 inch trout. What else could you ask for in a net?
I've said it before and I'm saying it again. Looking the part is half the battle. Fly fishing requires looking the part. And the more I'm immersed in the sport, I realize there are some items that really say, "That dude might be part fish". Now don't go out and buy Brad Pitt's whole A River Runs Through It outfit, because first, it's not the 1920s and second, you are definitely no Brad freaking Pitt.
When on the water, there is one item that really completes the modern day look of a seasoned fly fisherman. One that also tells people that you ain't here for the little ones neither. That would the Fishpond Nomad Mid-Length Net.
Before I had this net gifted to me from Trouts, I was carrying around a cute little wooden landing net. One time before I had my Nomad Net, I hooked into a carp that was longer than my arm and I fought her all the way to the bank three times only to awkwardly try to net the thing with my baby net. Each time I tried to scoop her up she would perform a back flip and blast back into my backing for another fifteen minutes of wearing us both out. Finally I had to corral her massive fish head and I sort of shovel her muscular flopping body onto shore. Real professional I tell ya. Norman McClean would not have approved. The second time I went carping, the Fishpond net swallowed my catch like a humpback whale.
So in summary, if you have a net that isn't a Fishpond net, you are probably going around looking like a hack. Get one at Trouts!
