Re: Net Strap??

I have a Wright & McGill retracting lanyard I pin below the back center of my collar. I slip a "scrunchy" -- one of those thick, elastic cords that women use to tie a ponytail -- over the handle my net, then pull the excess net material toward the handle and secure it under the scrunchy. Gives a nice, streamlined profile that makes it easy to slip the front edge of the net a little ways under the top of my waist pack. When I rotate the pack to the front, the net pops out, but the lanyard lets it hang right in the middle of my back; I tuck it in back place when I return my pack to the rear position. (Also, when I net a fish, its weight pulls the net material from under the scrunchy and the net opens to its full size.)

I find it pretty useful, even when busting brush.

Hope it helps someone.

My vest has a net compartment. It's a little bit of a challenge to get the net in, but it is managable.

When life looks like it's pulling you down, Rear back and make sure you set the hook:)

Remember: Never replace "I Don't Know How" with "I Can't"
