Now That’s a Net Man!

Some of you will remember the old Rapala X-Rap commercials, the ones where an extreme net man was sold with the X-Rap.  In keeping with the season, like this one:

I recently discovered a video that proves that extreme net men do exist!  This net man should win some kind of award!

“Are you wet?”  Ha!

Might want to consider wearing that PFD!

Now, all of you reading this, you owe it to your fishing partners to be a competent net man.  And, let’s face it, some of you, you know who you are, the best you can hope for is to be a good net man for your partner because you will be the one netting all the fish.  Take it seriously, put in the work!

Do not know if you will be able to get on the water this weekend.  Even if you do not, put in some practice netting fish, your partner deserves it!
