We ordered some Fishpond Nomad nets, they came in and we were blown away. I have never seen nicer nets. Since I do a lot of my fishing from a boat, this is the net I will buy. They are very light and durable, made from a combination of carbon fiber and fiberglass. Nomad nets float and they are supposed to be impervious to UV light. I hate to part with my old wooden boat net but I think its time for a upgrade. The boat net is 55 inches long and the hoop is large for scooping up big fish. This one is a beauty.
