The Perfect Dipnet is Back!
Posted 28 January 2014 - 04:45 PM
Durable all aluminum, now with larger diameter, double walled handles for excellent reliability, whether fishing close to home or in exotic climes.
Same strong Monorail hoop design. Your netting is protected against the harshest surfaces. The netting itself never makes abrasive contact with stream bottom. It is shielded by hard aluminum in the internal hoop channel.
The solid aluminum connecting yoke strengthens the net at what is often the weakest point of other nets -- the junction of the handle and hoop.
The standard net bag is 1/8 inch mesh. Perfect for the small animals that aquarists and researchers are seeking. Most other nets on the market have larger mesh, and many desirable specimens are lost as a result. Four colors available: White, Black, Brown and Green.
We make these nets ourselves, by hand. We stand behind our workmanship. We collect fishes and other creatures, just like you. Our goal is to provide and use the best equipment at the best price.
All nets break down for travel and snap together in seconds so you can be in the water and get down to business. Keep one in your vehicle. Pack one in your suitcase. Put one in your backpack. Your next adventure awaits!

About time Mark. It was getting difficult to tell people how good they are, then say " but you can't get one now". Glad they are back. Sorry to say though, that you just wont have too many repeat customers. The things just last too darn long.

Mine has survived three Panama trips with use in high gradient mountain streams, and still looks news. A key feature is that it breaks down and fits just right in typical modern luggage.
Thank you for the endorsement, Bruce! I can't remember when I sold you yours, so it must have been quite a while. Maybe at the Alabama convention? Nothing's better than hearing about where the nets have been and what they have caught.

Mine has been to Costa Rica twice and Honduras once. I never had issues with the airlines and it worked perfectly. I have had mine for about ten years now and it still looks like new. I highly recommend these nets and their maker.
Oh, stop! Blush! And tell me more Really, NANFAns are the best!

These really are the best nets ever.

Mark can probably provide a better answer than me, but in my experience with all kinds of netting, black seems lasts longer. The dark colored netting doesn't appear to "break down" as quickly as white. It may have something to do with the reflection or abortion of UV light. I've noticed this mostly with nets that stay submerged in the water, or in direct sunlight for long periods of time (floating holding pens, bait nets that remain on docks, etc).
Is there any real difference when using one mesh color or another?
Regarding the collection of fish, you may have a different capture rate between the two colors (avoidance).

I sent an email out for an order a few days ago and have yet to get a reply. Is this normal?. I figured I would have received a quick response.
I appologize! I watch carefully, and I was under the impression that I had responded to all the emails I had received. Of course I get a lot of junk too, so it may be that your email got lost in the shuffle. I will message you here via the forum, and if you want to try again, here is my email: firstname.lastname@example.org If others are sending emails and not recieving a response, please let me know. There may be a problem with the system. I will need to get on that right away. Thanks! Oh, wait, you're in Ontario? I did send an email to someone there. Maybe check your spam filter. I worry about that since this address is on the web site and it gets passed around and may be flagged by some systems as suspect. This tech stuff gets complicated.

While we are on the subject, I picked up two nets at the 2007 convention and they are fantastic and despite having used them extensively in almost every habitat type (besides having to use them to shoo away alligators) they have served me incredibly well and show very little wear even now. A quality product if I've ever seen one.
I'll second that. I bought one years ago and used it extensively without any signs of wear. I accidentally left it with an old employer and will be ordering a new Perfect Dipnet from Mark very soon.
