Trout swipe right for this fly
5 5

Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

-Floats in all conditions, very difficult to sink even in fast, broken water
-Fairly easy to see due to tuft of hair on back
-Legs help this fly land flat, instead of on it's side
-Works well in larger rivers, and tiny streams
-Trout hit it hard

Pick some up for summer

For context I have yet to find nippers I like.

Pros: good placement for the hook eye clearing point, durable, wide edge for clipping

Cons: The spring stopped working about a year into owning this, so I now have to pry them open each time. They also are more difficult to clamp down now, which is troublesome when I need to be precise in clipping the tag end

I wasn't happy with this net. First off, the net bag is not rubber like many others on the market right now, but a mesh net with a rubber coating. This is better than the old nylon nets, but still offered tons of opportunities for tangles. Additionally, the wood handle split after about a season of use. Maybe that is just the dry utah climate, but it made the net less fun to handle.

The net is super deep, but I think it is overkill unless you are bringing in massive massive fish.

I donated this net to my friend after being frustrated with it on a recent trip.

Jenney has the process covered in a review below. Start with gink and some shake, once it starts sinking apply shake. Repeat as necessary.

Solid tool in the pack. Bottle is big enough to accommodate larger flies like stimulators and salmon flies.
