Premium Quality Landing Nets, Handcrafted by Lloyd D Hautajarvi

Wading Nets

The 'Wading Net' model was the original version of LDH Landing Nets first created back in 1983.  It is the ideal size for the typical western river situation where a 20"+ fish might be expected during the course of a days fishing.  As with all LDH nets, the netbag provides plenty of space for the fish, allowing you to capture your quarry, handle it humanely in an uncrowded space and finally, release it back to the river.  The netting that I utilize is a soft knotless nylon.  It measures 21" in total length with an 11" wide by 14" long hoop.  Wading nets are available in all of the wood choices.
