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.
Our Nomad Hand Net suited the vest-types, and the Guide Net got the pros' attention. The hardcore lumbar pack wearer, however, wanted a net with a little more length in the handle so they could stuff it between their pack and their back. The Mid-Length Nomad is it.
Bought this net after I realized the places I was fishing was needed for a longer bigger net, it’s comfortable and light to carry around in my lumbar pack, the measuring tool on the net is great, the riverbed camo color looks amazing, great net especially when you’re not fishing with a buddy and need that little bit of length to bet that fish, overall amazing and worth the money
Not too big, not too small, juuuuust right.
The mid length nomad is a great setup for all my Colorado fishing needs. I pair it on hikes with my backpack/chest pack combo or on quick trips upstream with my paired down lumbar pack and it works with both rigs. I still haven’t met a fish that fully spills over the edges of the net that would warrant me needing a larger basket and that way I don’t look like an old satellite dish in your back yard while on the water.
From a technical perspective the measuring marks on the handle are a great touch, the coating on the handle offers good grip and adding the rubber butt makes it a great wading tool as well as a landing net.
Obviously it costs quite a bit so if you are the type to leave stuff behind, keep it on a leash or tell me where you fish so I can add a backup to mine.
I agree with Floyd that it must be said that this net is expensive.
If I lost it on the water, I’d immediately buy another one. It is a high-quality, lightweight and durable piece of fishing equipment. The long handle offers an excellent reach and can handle heavy fish. The net itself can be replaced and there is a manufactured hole to attach a lanyard, making it incredibly versatile. Fishpond produces equipment that are worth the investment, every time.
Let's get it over with. It's expensive. Full stop.
Now, let's talk about what you get for the money - Quality workmanship, lightweight, floats, and a wading staff. Thee Fishpond Nomad Mid-Length Net is fantastic for small or large fish and is so lightweight that it's hardly noticeable after a long day of fishing. The long handle is great not having to stoop low or kneel on those higher river banks. With my bad lower back this Net is a Godsend. The length of this net also doubles as a wading staff - one less item I don't have to carry any longer. The net bag is large and deep and hooks won't get stuck. Great for carrying out any discarded trash too and keeping our rivers and lakes clean. Finally, being made of a mix of fiberglass and carbon fiber means I don't have to worry about refinishing wooden nets after years of fishing. At the end of day, quality gear is expensive whether it's a rod, reel, waders, packs, etc and many overlook the value of a good Net. It only comes to mind when that trophy fish breaks off because you couldn't reach it or it couldn't fit in the net. Fishpond products are the best.
Catching is one thing, landing in the net is another as we all know. This is a very good net from Fishpond, especially for the solo angler. Just long enough to reach out and scoop up your catch but also short enough to walk the trails with it behind your back. Great craftmanship in the handle and net securing work.Basket size is suitable for large or small fish without damage. Very lightweight and durable and it floats... although dont try this in the river! An optional cap for the butt protects those drops and bumps on trees and rocks. I am going to purchase a larger one for the driftboat.The net release system they also make rounds out the whole package. Always happy with Fishpond quality products that last.
