    This should do, yes?

    Re: nets and netting material

    I have a rubber net that isn't a brodin ,but its very similar and I like it a lot. Its nice if you fish tandem rigs as the flies don't get caught in the material, its easy to get a big fish out, unlike netting nets which sometimes can tangle the fish in it making it difficult to grab the fish with a good grip, especially for a quick picture. Shop around the price ranges on the brodin type nets vary greatly depending on where you look. Its all the same stuff just certain brands sell at a higher price. I would tell you where I got mine if I knew, I found it in the woods after a high water event a year or so back.

    Re: nets and netting material

    I own the frying pan and the Gallatain both are excellent nets.

    The frying pan is more suited for larger fish ( delaware) and the Gallatain is perfect for the smaller waters.

    I've had the frying pan net for a few years and nothing has failed.

    No rips, holes, or tears.

    They are very well made and not heavy on the back.

    I'd recommend it.

    I have a Brodin "trout" ghost net. I love it..I have caught fish that won't fit in though.....But when they are that big you can just tail them....

    do you have the ghost net?

    If you do, does the fact that it does not lay flat on your back snag brush etc?

    Re: nets and netting material

    WB the Brodin ghost are nice know several people that have them and they perform well while traveling stream side .. You can if you like purchase a new Brodin basket and attach it to your old net with a kit that they provide. Have seen this done and they look good just a thought.

    I just rec'd my 3rd one. absolutley stunning workmanship, and the bag is much lighter than that used by Brodin.
    Look at the tailwater. Anything larger isn't necessary.

    I went to their site, very nice, It seems that you only can get them from a shop or custom order from them, but cant buy direct from them unless custome ordered?
