Wonderful B-day present,
March 18, 2014
By: AmberleeS
from Hot Springs, AR
"This net is AWESOME! I got this net (I believe mine is the 20") for my birthday, and it is absolutely perfect. It is beautiful! You can tell that it is handcrafted from a lovely wood (the description says CoCobolo, I don't know much about wood, but it is beautiful). It has the perfect handle to get an awesome grip that feels great in your hand. I fell deep in love with this net when I opened it. Then, when I took it out on the river, I fell even more in love with it! What's the best part? How amazingly light it feels! Usually wooden nets are just a bit too heavy for me to hold onto (I'm a petite woman with not much muscle for show). I've lost more than my fair share of great nets down the river because they were either too heavy once I got the fish, or because they slipped from my hand. I don't have to worry about that with the Premium Brodin Net, because the handle is even hand-shaped. I couldn't have asked for a better net. It also has a French clip so that I can keep it on my vest while I'm not using it. I don't care for the clip all that much, but my husband loves it, so it does get used. All-in-all, this net is light, durable, and gets the job done without any trouble.This net is everything one could ever need out on the lake."

Fourth time's the charm,
August 20, 2013
By: OldBlueEyes
"I had one of the old catch and release nets from Orvis and four years in a row the net ripped on a trout's jawbone. Orvis was great about replacing the net each time it ripped...
This year I got a Brodin net instead. It was perfect. Durable, deep enough to make sure the fish couldn't flop out of the net...and shallow enough to get the fish on a keeper easily.

The most beautiful object,

"What a well made and beautiful landing net. It took a lot of thought to spend as much but it was love at first. The lightness is most impressive. This net will certainly be handed down."

Best Gift,

"I recieved this at Christmas and i could not wait to try it out. Well it works great, the hooks do not get caught up in the netting and the material is soft for releaseing fish unharmed."

nice but expensive,
February 19, 2012
By: tookie
from Downingtown Pa
"After losing a nice rainbow and my fly because I did not have a net I had
to stop at the local Orvis store. I purchase a mid size Brodin net. The net looks nice, feels good in your hand and has a nice deep net. I also purchased the magnetic net holder. Everything looks good and functions greet, wish the price was a little lower.

Truly Premium,
December 5, 2011
By: Anonymous
from Bournemouth, Dorset.
"I bought this net for my son and am delighted with the quality and feel of the product. I hope that he gets lots of use out of it!
One thing that I would not do again is to have it personalised. The lettering is a bit of a non event, not at all what I had expected form Orvis

excellent net,

"I picked up this net during a stay at Blackberry Farm. If you have ever fished their private waters then you know you need a good net. I have had this net for almost 10 years and it is still as beautiful and functional as the day I got it"

Perfect Net!,

"Everything about this particular net is perfect! The only reason for four stars instead of five is the condition of the gift box I received."

net for all trout,
August 6, 2011
By: buggerchucker
from Pawlet VT
"Just picked this net up from the boys in Manchester this spring and have since landed everything from twentysome odd inch frankenrainbows to delicate little six inch brookies, all delicately, low hook tangling, and so far has taken my abuse. Awesome all around trout net."

"I bought this net a few years ago and have used it for a couple seasons now. The wood is beautiful, especially if you get the personalization, but the net quality is low. I had the stitching rip apart when caught on brush (not the pocket of the net, just the thread holding the net to the frame) and had to replace it with something stronger. It's beautiful, but if you fish often and through thick stuff, you're going to get it beaten..."

"You would think that net is a net. Not so. There are certain features a net needs to have if it is to be a useful tool when trying to land a trophy (and unhappy) trout/bass/crappie, etc. Strength and durablility are obvious, but balance is equally important. And similar to a golf club, you have to like what you are looking at. Orvis Brodin have all of these features. I have used these nets for quite some time and like them so well, I have two of them..."
