Catch and release just got easier.
There are few things more stunning in their simple elegance than a well cast fly from a drift boat. It's only fitting the Brodin Mackenzie Ghost Series Net is the finishing touch for your fly fishing gear. Plantation-raised teak turns into a beautiful handle to last decades of angling. The thermoplastic rubber net barely tips the scales, is clear, and seems to disappear when it hits the water. If the fish can't see or feel the net, the fish shouldn't spook. With a bit of finesse, you'll be able to grab the prize-winning picture of your catch, and still release the fish without causing it lethal trauma. When the plastic starts to show signs of years on the water, simply restore your net to its original glory with a replacement Ghost Series Net Bag.

Classic Drift Boat Net
- Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions
The rubber clear net is superior to classic nylon mesh nets that would grab your hooks and tangle up your tackle, the wood finish is a classic mainstay of the old school look for traditionalists. Perfect for drift boat fishing for trout but definitely undergunned for steelhead or salmon trips.
Also, unless you are well over 6 feet, the net itself is probably a bit too long if you plan to use it for wade fishing. It will definitely hit the ground and drag if you tuck it into your belt while wading. Great for trout, but I've got a separate 24 inch width hoop for steelhead. Just too small for steelhead fishing and the wood handle might not be sturdy enough to lift bigger fish out of the water.
