    How to replace/restring your net:

    1. To re-string your Brodin net, you will need a net bag (of course), a small clamp (a clothespin will do), an embroidery needle and some 30# test black dacron line. Make sure that the line is about two feet longer than the circumference of the hoop.
    2. Clamp the net bag to the center of the top of the hoop. This will ensure that the seam of the net bag is exactly in the middle.
    3. Next tie the line onto the net bag at the first hole near the handle. A clinch knot or three overhands will do. Trim the line but leave a 1/4" tag.
    4. With the line threaded to the needle, insert the needle through the first hole from the inside. Pull the line tight.
    5. Put the needle through the second hole from the outside, go around the top of the net bag and then back out the same hole.
    6. Repeat this process until you get to the final hole. You can remove the clamp when you reach the top of the net frame.
    7. When you pull the line out of the final hole, pull the needle under the running line and tie a half hitch around it. Do two more half hitches to secure the line. If you pull the tag end of the line towards the butt of the handle, the half hitch will jump down into the hole giving your re-strung net a clean appearance.
    8. Go out and catch a fish to test your work.

    5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Good Way to Revive an Old Net, 7.5.2012
    Reviewer: Richard Lacey (Chesterfield, MO)

    I ordered two of these net bags to replace the bags on a large Orvis net and a small Brodin "catch and release" net. Both turned out fine but not as easy as for some of the other reviewers. I had to drill additional holes in my nets to accommodate the "handles" on the new bags. I did not find the video very helpful but then again it is not all that difficult. I took the opportunity to revarnish my nets while I had the bag off and they look like new.

    The old net (not a Brodin model) seriously needed a new bag. I almost threw it away but, luckily, discovered the replacement bag offered by Fishwest. Good price and easy to follow instructions from Brodin that worked, including the clothespin. Thanks.

    Great looking replacement net. Ordered the wrong size the first time, but exchange was quick and easy.

    It was very easy to get this replacement net bag onto an old net I had in the garage! I did it in the kitchen while cooking dinner, and the "new" net looks great!

    Reviewer: Robert Ballard (Flemington, NJ)

    I wanted to salvage my favorite net, an Orvis model with a built in ruler. The netting was torn beyond repair, and I saw this net bag on your site. I measured the circumference, ordered it up, and with a little effort, I have a great net that's better than new! Ordered another one for a smaller model since. Thanks!
