Everyone Needs a Good Net Man

Found this posted on the PK Lures FaceBook page.  This is about the worst job you can do netting a fish!

Be selective when choosing your net man!PKLure.com#ohno

That is why everyone needs a good net man!

Keep the net out of the water until the fish is ready, don’t rush it.

Hold the net in the water and lead the fish into the net, HEAD FIRST!

Then and only then, reach and scoop with the net, get the head in as far as possible before lifting.

Don’t be “that guy”, your partner will never let you forget it!

Have a great weekend everyone, don’t screw-up the net job!
