I have a FishPond Guide. I wear it as a waist pack. For me there was no easy way to carry a net. I just stick it in the band on my waist. It was a pain in the tail when I needed something and had to move it around front. I would have to take the net out, spin the pack to the front, change flies or tippet etc. spin it back and then stick the net back into the band. With you wearing it as a sling seems to add more problems. Maybe someone will have a good answer for you. By the way I only use mine as a bass or salt pack now, where I don't need a net.
