    Default Places to Rent Dipnets in Soldonta or Kenia?

    I'll be travelling this weekend to Soldotna and am not able to take my gear on the plane. Is there anyplace I can rent a net to get into the shuffle?

    None that I'm aware of, but here are two suggestions:

    - Mike's Welding is one of Alaska's premier dipnet-makers, and he's in that area. Call'm up and ask if he rents'm.
    - Member AlaskaCanoe here on this forum rents some gear (don't know if dipnets are part of that) out of Sterling. You can often run into him on this forum's canoe forum.

    Report back if you solve this problem; likely others would like to know the same answer - I've heard this question before.

    Just a suggestion: If it costs more than $50 to rent one, you might consider just buying a brand new one when you're there and then offering some lucky person a super deal to buy it off you when you're done for the day. You could end up paying no more to buy it for the day than you would to rent it. I was dipping next to a guy the other day who had just sold one of his nets to a family who only had one net, and man, those were some happy folks.
    Or, you could post on here and tell everyone when and where you'll be and make the same offer: Brand new net, used only once, at a good price, available as soon as you get all the fish you want.
    Just thinkin' out loud here. Good luck to you.

    ...adding dipnet rentals to my list of enterprises that can cater to traveling dipnetters (that's in addition to camping spots, ice, snacks, ice cream truck, fire wood, clean/pack/freezing service, etc.)

    Dipnet protectors is just another name for a parasail. Don't ask, you don't want to know!!!
    If a dipnetter dips a fish and there is no one around to see/hear it, Did he really dip?

    Sounds to me like either Ron Fuller or Mike's Welding is paying you to Crash Test Dummy (CTD) their gear by not tying it down!

    I do love my DNP!
