Fish Net Stalkings

Or is it fish net stockings? I can see how they came up with the term.

My apologies for that mildly awkward photo and unladylike pose. Admittedly there was some chaos in the moment of that grip & grin. Heavy wind, rocks all around, and we were coming up fast on the takeout. But we wanted to document this gamechanger fish. It was a tough afternoon float on the Madison and we needed this morale boost.

But back to nets. Let’s dish. What floats your boat when it comes to fish nets:

  • Giant nets with extendable handles?
  • Traditional wooden net?
  • Certain brand you prefer?
  • You don’t fish with a net but you do wear ladies hosiery under your waders?

    Last year I bought a Brodin Frying Pan Ghost Float Tube Net that I love. It’s small enough to carry while wading, yet big enough to use while on the Scadden drifter. And hooks never snag in the rubber netting. It was a little pricey, but hopefully it will last a while.

    No, I’ve never worn hose under my waders, but on some of those icy cold mornings, I would probably try anything to stay warmer.

    Oh yeah, and get me a diablo sandwich, a Dr Pepper, and make it quick I’m in a god-damn hurry

    Chick – - Please accept my public apology for my earlier comment. That was the lascivious little voice in my head brought out by self-medicated shots of Maker’s Mark. You do have a lovely pair of fish sticks by the way. Best fishes, Rodster

    hey, nice leg! – I mean net, catch and release from what I can see from the picture – forgive me, I was out all day yesterday pulling redfish out of the water with Capt. Kirby Lacour out of New Orleans – dangerous city if you like to eat
