I recently went on a four day sampling trip. Many gar, shad and suckers made my nets smell rather bad. Once home, I rinse them in luke warm water and apply a light dose (1/2 strength) liquid laundry detergent while in the bath tub. My family hates it when I do this. I let them soak for a few minutes and lightly scrub the net together. I then rinse until all the "suds" are gone and apply a small (about half dose again) fabric softener. I let this soak a few mintes and take the nets outsdie for a good hose down.
I sould mention all of my nets are nylon and most are the 1/4" ace type.
Is there a better way?

I believe the most I have ever done is shake out all the trash after dipping. Maybe I should have been softening mine up all this time.....

I only rinse my dip nets. They never really get very stinky.
I'm still not sure there isn't a better way. I hope to hear others tell me thier secret formula for a "net wash".
