How Do You Store Net Fly Fishing?

Net fly fishing can be a great way to enjoy the outdoors, but it can also be a challenge if you don’t have the right gear. The right net is essential for a successful outing, and it’s important to know how to store your net properly.

The first step in storing your net is to make sure it is completely dry before you put it away. If you have used the net in saltwater, then you should rinse it thoroughly with fresh water and let it dry completely. If possible, store your net in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight as this can cause damage over time.

It’s important to take care of your net properly so that it will last for years.

A good way to do this is by using a plastic mesh bag or storage box to keep your net protected from dirt and dust when not in use. This will also help prevent tangles and snags that can occur if you simply throw your net into a closet or drawer.

You should also inspect your net for any signs of wear or damage before putting it away. Make sure all seams are intact and that there are no tears or holes in the mesh. You should replace any worn or damaged parts as soon as possible so that they won’t cause further damage down the line.

When not in use, you should also coil up your fishing line and store it in a separate container from the net itself. This will help prevent tangles and make sure that the line won’t get caught on anything while in storage.


Storing your net fly fishing properly is an essential part of maintaining its quality over time. Make sure to rinse if used in saltwater, store away from direct sunlight, use mesh bags or boxes for protection, inspect for wear or damage, and coil up fishing lines before putting them away for maximum longevity of your gear!
