Gentle catch and release is critical to protecting trout streams for generations to come, which is why you head to the creek with the elegantly shaped Brodin Cutthroat Phantom Series Net. The thermoplastic Ghost net won't snag flies and is easy on fish so you can turn them loose to fight another day. Plus, the non-native eucalyptus wood frame looks great when you snap a few pictures of that beautiful 18-inch brown.
- Non-native eucalyptus wood is exceptionally durable and handsome
- 11.75 by 16 inch hoop is ideal for fish up to 20 inches in length
- Lightweight thermoplastic Ghost net bag won't snag flies, disappears in the water, and is easy on fish

Great quality for the price
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
My first thermoplastic net. I was tired of hooks getting stuck and my net sticking to brush/trees on the river. This net solves that. It also is easier on the fish, as they won't get all tangled up in it when they are thrashing around like they can with nylon nets. The wood work is fantastic, and apparently you can replace the net if it ever breaks or wears out. I don't know how this one compares with other more expensive Brodin nets in terms of weight, but it feels a little on the heavy side. Then again, I was used to a smaller net with nylon. That being said, I don't feel burdened with it hooked to my back. I was fortunate to land three fish the first time I took it out. This should last a lifetime. Highly recommended.
