Thread: Attaching/carrying landing nets

    I attach most my nets with the magnet at the top, but I do have a leash on the handle. My Willy J has a hook in the handle so that one I just carry on my belt but it too has a leash at the end of the handle.

    Ditto! Karen, that hoop is laminated hardwood and it would take a lot more than a magnet to break it.

    Pardon me for an alternative solution, but if I go wading these days I'll do a face-plant in the rocks. So here is my answer to net storage. It also affords room for lunch, a thermos of coffee and a bag of chips.

    Where you go is less important than how you take the steps.

    OK, you've made a believer of me, gonna go upside down. Should at least keep me from getting caught up in the brush.

    I just wanted to thank you for this, I have started using this method, and it is working great. I take my net now almost every trip because it is so EZ. The only thing I do different is attach the lanyard on the left side, I put the net in my left hand, rod in the right, works better for me. It is very easy to reattach after using, the magnets really "seek" each other and snap back quick and easy. Just another example of how great this site is for getting great info.......

    Are carabiners the greatest crossover sport gear ever?

    But they will bend - have lost some golf towels that way. Use caution

    The picture reflects what I had described at the beginning of the thread. I don't know that one's any better than the other but FWIW, instead of carabiners, I use the loops from a couple old key rings to attach the coiled lanyard on both ends (I have a D ring on the side of my vest rather than having to use a belt loop). Smaller than the carabiners and plenty heavy enough to where they'll never open up.
