Advice On Fly Fishing Nets

If you use a landing net when fly fishing you will definitely land more fish, the art of using a fly fishing net is to play the fish as you normally would until the fish is within range, then submerge the net under the water and ease the fish over the net and lift it out of the water.You do not want to make any sudden movements with the net at this point as this will spook the fish, and after an exhilarating fight with the fish you want to give yourself the best chance of landing it.
r
rThere are lots of different types of fly fishing nets to choose from, the most common is the mesh type nets, some of these nets can damage the slime that is on the body of the fish, this can lead to the fish catching diseases, and your frustration trying to get the hook out when it gets tangled in the net.
r
rI advise using a rubber type net, as this will protect the fish and help to stop your hook getting tangled up in the net, this is especially important if you are fishing the catch and release method, as we want the fish to come to the least amount of harm possible.
r
rIf you intend on fishing on the banks of a lake or river then a fly fishing net with an extendable handle would be the best type to use, this will give you greater reach and a better chance of landing the fish.
r
rSometimes when you are fly fishing you will want to wade out into the river, then a short handled fly fishing net is all you need, these can come in different designs and materials, you could try a net that is shaped like a pear, this type of net seems to cut through the water easier than the others.
r
rIf you do decide to wade out into the river remember safety, use a life preserver in case you slip and lose your balance in the water, you can also use a bank stick to support you while you are wading, especially when river fishing as the currents can be very strong.
r
rUsing a small boat is an excellent way of reaching the parts of the river you would like to fish, you should use a long handled net or extendable net when fishing from a boat, these types of net make it much easier to land the fish and stops you from leaning over the side of the boat where you could lose the fish trying to hand lift it into the boat. If you decide to use a fly fishing net you will definitely land more fish, giving even more enjoyment out of this great sport of fly fishing.
