Cast Net Care

Cast Net Care

 Anyone who has spent time fishing knows that the best part is catching your targeted species and the worst part is cleaning up all of your gear. All of your equipment requires care and maintenance and a cast net is no different. It is made up of many different components and all need regular maintenance to stay in good shape. Here is a list of what we suggest to start using and maintaining your net.

  1. When you first open your net check it to make sure there are no defects. We try our best to make sure all are perfect but accidents happen. Please go through it thoroughly.
  2. We have already treated your net with environmentally safe materials to soften, protect and enhance its ability. No need to add fabric softeners yet.
  3. After use, wash your net thoroughly with fresh, clean water. It’s very important to remove saltwater and fish residue from your net. Please do not use detergents!
  4. After washing it is paramount that you dry your net thoroughly. You can spread it out or hang it but please do not lift the weights off the ground. That is very bad for the net.
If you follow these guidelines and throw your net responsibly you will get many years of use out of your Barracuda cast net.
