I have to put a plug in for B & J's Alaska Outfitters as I just picked up one of their dipnets from a drawing at the Sportsmans Show last weekend. I attended Patrick Lorentz's seminars on dipnetting and one of the drawing he had at his show was for a dip net from B&J's, well I was luckly enough to win the drawing but I figured I would get a net that I needed to upgrade from or buy more pieces to make functional. How wrong I was, B&Js donated a complete set up, 2 six foot blue poles, a large hoop with gillnet and a D handle. I'm set up for fishing this summer now. I can not believe how much lighter and easy to put away this net is from my homemade net I used last year. Now I just need the fish to show up. Thanks B & J's for you support and to Pat for the seminar tips!
