Same reason people put huge spoilers on stock sub-200 hp front wheel drive vehicles. A big net screams "look at me!" Vanity is the ONLY reason I do this hobby. You think I actually care about catching fish?Can anyone explain why people are using the gigantic nets? I understand in a boat you need a long handle. You can get a 24" trout into a fairly average sized net so why the huge hoop and long handles for wading?
I like some of the fishpond nets because they are lightweight. Personally I use a Bass pro net that cost ten dollars. Very soft mesh. I do know the guides like to stand around looking cool with giant wood nets as they shout orders to their clients.
