great handle terrible net -
By: mtnmanhunter from Casper, WY
I received this net in advance of a trip to the big horn. It was long enough, had a great deep basket I though wow! However now after 4 trips to the river it has four breaks in the netting and a missing piece about .75 inches in diameter. This would be a great product if they put a beefier net. Or, maybe my net had some manufacturers’ defects.
A big step up...the new Brodin Catch & Release Net -
By: MBrucato123 from North Attleboro, MA
I am happy to report that the new Brodin Catch & Release Ghost net is well made and it is designed especially to protect trout from undue damage to their layer of protective slime when they are in the net. Thank you Orvis for a great new innovative product designed to promote the catch and release fishing ethic!
This is a great net for both boating and fly fishing. The handle is long enough for boat usage and is great for river fishing.

I have the 22" model. Its beautifully made and I hope that replacement parts/ nets are available from ORVIS for many years. Plastic net is an improvement when untangling a hook from the net. It´s not low-cost but well made.

After fighting with hooks stuck in the mesh of regular nets I finally broke down and purchased this one and it was welll worth it, well built and beautiful craftsmanship. Because I considered this a lifetime investment I had it monogrammed which was burned in resulting in a beautiful professional appearance. Just another quality product from Orvis of which I look forward to years of use and enjoyment.
Perfect for a lady fisher! -
By: AmberleeS from Hot Springs, AR
As a woman fisherman, I found this particular net to be perfect for my smaller physique and build. Being of smaller physique, I need a lightweight net that I can get into the water, around my fish, and back out again with out having too much trouble, or running the risk of losing my fish/grip. I've lost a few nets to the river because I can't hold onto a heavy net. Now I don't have to worry about it (unless I catch the monster fish, in which case I'll just have to man up and get it in the boat). The Brodin Catch & Release Ghost Rubber Net weighs less than most, and therefore is all that easier for me to use when I catch my really big fish! Along with being lightweight, the Brodin Catch & Release Ghost Rubber Net is also very durable. I've caught some really big fish, and this thing can keep up with me. That's exactly what I need! I don't have to work at keeping it from snagging on crud, flies, or rings either. Plus, I love the fact that I can have it engraved with my initials! I will definitely be getting more of these as presents for my fellow-fisher friends and family! If you enjoy having great equipment that will last forever, and never fail you, then this is the net for you.
Appears good....... -

Have not had a chance to use the net yet but wish it came with a cord to attach to my vest or chest pack. Was larget than I expected and can't wait to land the big trout.
Excellent fishing gift -
By: Ribid from Asheville, NC
I gave this net as a Christmas gift and it was loved! The initial engraving was perfect and the net looks incredible and does its job too. Just as expected orvis processed the net with the engraving very fast and the customer service was orvis quality. Great net that will last forever and look good too.
