Late last month, fly-fishing accessory makers Fishpond announced it will add Nomad Nets to its lineup of high quality fly-fishing and outdoor travel gear. Nomad Nets founder and designer Kevin Best will add his waterproof and buoyant nets to the Fishpond family in November.
"After meeting the crew at fishpond and the initial acquisition talks began, I was very excited about the distribution and awareness a company of Fishpond's stature could offer my nets," explained Best. "Now that I am joining the Fishpond team internally as well, I can't wait to explore expanding the net line and creating spectacular products for anglers and outdoorsmen alike."
Best created Nomad Nets after he became fed up with wooden nets that would break or sink. He decided to use his knowledge of sporting goods products to design a weatherproof net that floated and could withstand heavy use. Best used a carbon fiber and fiberglass composite to create his vision of a lightweight but durable product for anglers who need a net that can last.
Fishpond's line of Nomad Nets will include the Hand Net, the Mid-Length Net, the Guide Net, the Mid-Length Boat Net, and the Boat Net. Pricing will range from $115.95 to $239.95, and replacing netting will be available in small and large for $18.95 and $22.95, respectively. All the nets will be available in Original, Riffle Camo (a light grey/blue camo pattern) or Tailwater, except for the Guide Net.
