I have a sling pack and not a vest. I don't like a vest because then I can't see if I'm going over my waders. I have a magnet on my net and attach it to my shoulder strap. I will admit that I think this would be easier with a vest keeping the net centered in my back.

I'm a big fan of this product. I've use Rose Creek Net Release clips for years and have never had one fail, or wear out. Most fishing shirts have a loop on the back below the neck that you can use to attach the clip. As long as your net is not too heavy or large, it works well. I also have a Rose Creek clip attached to a Carabiner that I hook onto my belt when I choose to ditch the vest.

I once saw a guy who had a web belt worn across his chest (like a bandolier) that he used to hold his fish pliers, tippet holder, assorted do-dads, and a net clip on the back for his net. Nice thing about this setup was that it was easy to remove and put back on.

I actually just thought about the carabiner angle. Could just hook it on to a belt and use a loop for the net at the waist.

I'll see how it goes tomorrow (and maybe I'll get to use the net!).

For anyone losing sleep wondering how my outing with the net went, a polychord 'sling' over my shoulder worked just fine for my uses. That might change. I didn't use it on a few fish but I can see the practicality of using one for a fish that won't stop for unhooking it.

Got caught on a few things but not too bad and I tend to wade more than fish from the bank.

Thanks for the replies again...some great ideas.

I looked at the Rose Creek Angling web site, but couldn't figure out what the method the net release uses to attach the two sides of the release together - is it Velcro?

Along those lines, Umpqua recently released a modular system that uses molle loops to attach all the components (pockets, bottle holder, patches, tool holders, net holster, tippet minder etc) to a wading belt or their packs, but it also opens up a ton of options outside of their products since it's a standardized attachment system for military stuff.

The stronger 12# SF magnet was a total improvement. My net remained fastened even when bush whacking! Too bed I only had to use 1x in 6 hours of fishing!! Melt was serious and the fish were not on where I was on Saturday. Sunday looked pointless here anyway, but my youngest boy turned 24 and a nice superbowl party took precedence. Looks like some constant, cooler weather ahead. Things should improve. Pretty lackluster early season for me ....so far!!! Happy Fishing!!!!
