Three tools in one device… plus convenient to carry and store.
The 12 Inch Salmon/Steelhead NetStaff® is designed for netting medium to large stream fish such as Steelhead or salmon. The net hoop is 12 inches wide by 16 inches long. The net bag is deep and designed specifically to accommodate large fish. The wading staff is 54 Inches long and comes with a retrieval hook allowing the fisherman to reach high into trees and brush to retrieve flies and lures. As part of its design the product has been constructed to fit into a travel bag yet maintain all the functionality you would expect with any net or wading staff. Many nets are just too cumbersome to travel with and often left behind.
Combined with the patent pending GearDock™ the NetStaff is easily carried and stored. Often the fisherman doesn’t even know it is there, until it is needed. Once the product is needed to net a fish or wade the stream you simply reach behind you with one hand, grab and release the device from the GearDock, press the button and deploy it with a flick of your wrist.
Each NetStaff comes complete with one GearDock Kit inclusive of a GearDock, dock holder and a tube of glue.
The net bag material maximizes fish safety and does not scale the fish or remove the slime coat. But just as important it does not snag hooks and become a nuisance after netting the fish. Simply use it to net the fish, unhook the fish and go back to fishing. The bag capacity has been carefully crafted to capture and immobilize the fish targeted once netted without harm, a big bag for salmon/steelhead and a smaller bag for trout.
