The net is a wooden Catskill 20 1/2 made in the good ole USA; I remember seeing them some place in a sporting goods store, but this one I found while fishing probably five or six years ago. Makes up for the nets I have lost in previous years .
It's a nice deep net that easily handles the bigger ones. Generally only use it on the bigger trout to lessen playing them to exhaustion and to prevent tippet break off.
Trying to improve with the pics, experimenting with settings on my Kokak pocket size easy share, took these using closeup mode. I am afraid to carry the "Cannon" while wading.
Is that a foam ant or dubbed ? Dandy day for you !
Brown Foam ant. I had dabbed some high visibility green on the front to help these old eyes to locate the ant on the water. The h.v. green did not work as intended as it turned to be a drab green. Never the less, the trout did not seem to mind the color, might have thought it to be an ant with a blade of grass .
