Fishpond Nomad Boat Net

Thought I'd see if there's any interest here before I go the auction route. Brand new Fishpond Nomad Boat net. It's the Orvis camo edition. Biggest net that Fishpond makes. Great for fish into the teens. Only selling because I wound up with two of these. Asking $SOLD, which includes CONUS shipping. PayPal preferred. Texting is probably quicker than PMs. 541.848.seven6nine5 Thanks, Neal.

I carry one all the time, they will hold long fish and contrary to what some have said to me I believe that holding fish in the net beats playing them until they float. You got yourself a nice piece of equipment there.

Has anyone used these boat nets while walk and wading? Either the long or short handled version? Iím interested in one for when I go out solo for steelhead, but have always wondered if they are too large to be manageable while trekking around?

Nets are new to me Half pounder, so I donít know. You will get more responses if you start a new thread and post it in the Tackle section.

Thank you Ard. I see the importance of carrying a net. Also, I am loving the connectors you made. Work great and really reduces damage to the end of my lines.

Glad they are good with you Seth, I'm still using the same ones I stuck on years ago. Oh and the net; largest I've scooped with that was longer than the scale on the handle so I figure 33 - 34 inch is fair guess and they fit right in. Way easier to manage while slipping the hook but I'd say that a good 80% of my fish unhook themselves once in that rubber bag.

If you are tall like me you can just tuck it under the wading belt at your rear. I use the Simms neoprene belt and the net stays put. I also have one of those fancy waterproof sling packs from Simms and the net handle slides into the net sleeve on the back panel. When the sling is in the rear position the net is vertical (hoop up) and for a short guy this will keep the handle off the ground.

I've netted a 15 lbs Atantic in the large hoop size of those nets. I have the mid shaft length Nomad, and being tall 5'11'', I sling it off my sling pack (hoop up). I use a fishpond magnet lanyard so I can just pull it free when I want. At my hight, the tip of the handle rides about 2 to 3'' off the ground behind me. I also use a fishpond handle protector for that reason; the rubber sleeve protects the carbon when bumping the ground, going down steps or a hill. Works great!
