    For boat, in-stream, and shore.

    The Fishpond Nomad Guide Net is long enough to use from a boat and short enough to use for fly fishing and wading. Made out of carbon fiber and fiberglass composite, this net is extremely lightweight for how durable it is, and it's buoyant so you'll have a chance of retrieving it if it slips away. Fishpond added an Olive RiverKoat finish to give you a good grip even when it's wet, and the olive carbon weave brings some style to fishing net world. This net also features a scale on the side to measure your catch, and the included rubber bag makes sure this net doesn't get messed up on trips to and from the pond.

    Nothing But Net

    • Familiarity: I've used it several times

    This is a HUGE upgrade from the old net I used to have.

    Having a net with a long handle allows you to net some monster fish and measure them with the 27" handle to prove to the boys you took in that Loch Ness Monster you only talked about.

    My only grip with the net is that it is too long for me. I am 5'10" and matched this up with my Patagonia Stealth Hip pack and it is too long for me (bottom of the handle bumps into my calf/ankle). Going to give this away to a friend who is soon to have a drift boat and make this a boating net.

    If you are looking for one you can wade fish and have for your day trips on the river I would go with the Fishpond Emerger or the Nomad El Jeffe (if you are taller than 5'10" or 5'11" it is perfect to have in your hip pack holster).

    Overall, Fishpond is a fantastic company and I am fortunate enough to say I am friends with one of the owners over there in CO. They eat, sleep and breathe fly-fishing so these dudes know what they are doing.

    Nothing But Net


    • Familiarity: I've put it through the wringer

    I like this net a lot. It is lightweight carbon fiber and surprisingly not awkward to carry. It has a long handle which is great for me because I'm short so it makes netting my fish a lot easier.


    I Expected More...

    • Familiarity: I've used it once or twice and have initial impressions

    Just used this net for the first time last week and already the coating on the handle is scratching off. The net works great, but for a $200.00 Net you think that Fish Pound would have coated the handle with something a little more durable. I'm hoping this is the only issue I have....

    Nomad ? Just say No

      I bought two of these for Guide pals last Fall - we fish year round here. The handle of the first net broke as my buddy set it down in the snow. The second net already has bag tears. I bought a Nomad Boat net for another Guide at the same time and that net has bag tears already. Good looking junk!

      the ONE

      • Familiarity: I've used it several times

      This net is badass. When I first picked it up I couldn't believe how light it was. I use this when I'm floating, which allows you to net fish without falling out of the boat. It has clear markings on the handle for you to measure, which is nice when your buddy thinks he caught the fish of the'll have the truth.

      Does anyone use this net as a wading staff? How does it hold up other than coating scratches?

      Hi Jared,

      This net is pretty strong. Although not meant for use as a wading staff I have done it many times. I would say out of all the long handled nets that we have, this one would be the one to use for wading support if you're going to do it.

      If you have any other questions, just let me know.
