Default Custom Bait Dip Net

Does anyone out there have any suggestions on one of these? There are some guys making custom gaffs and matching rods ect but I have not seen a nice looking custom bait dip net?

Aftco makes one and I'm sure it is nice, but it is gold (which is not an option) and I am really trying to get something other than a lime green or orange bait net !

Thanks,

Why is gold not an option? The Aftco bait nets are great.

Thanks for the replies.......I found a custom one from Connely Rods that has the same type net set up as the aftco and will match my gaff from them too.

As for the gold, some of us are blessed with OCD and are too detail oriented for our own good...............I just don't like gold on my boat, but to each his own.... I do have a few gold reels, but I can let that slide.

I bought calcutta bamboo gaffs and bait net with orange wrapping. get the gaff They all float and match. The floating part is nice. Apparently, when your buddy gaffs a fish, lets the gaff go, the fish dives, the gaff then floats right back up to the surface along side the boat..... Lucky SOB!
