Is this a thing? Or is it price prohibitive?

I have the Fishpond Nomad and love it, except it's about twice as big as I need it to be. Most of my favorite waters rarely have fish over 12" (or at least I can't catch 'em). It's a bit too heavy for the net retractor too, but if it was about the size of Brodin's "Brook Trout" series (7"X11" opening, 18"ish overall) it would be perfect.

I see Brodin's CF net is slightly smaller than the Nomad, but I haven't found any others online. Am I missing some options out there? Anyone ever made one out of a racquetball racquet or something creative?

Honestly, I'm for the bigger is better category in regards to nets. You can fit small fish in a large net, can't fit large fish in a small net. Also if you are exploring new water, you are set and don't need to worry about what net to bring based on fish size.

Thanks for everyone's input, it's nice to see what other people have come up with. Mike, that turned out nice! That's pretty much what I was thinking, just smaller, like you said. I'll cobble something together just for fun and post pics if it turns out.

It's a trivial problem for sure, but this is what some of us do for fun in the "off-season" I guess.
