How to add a Ghost replacement bag to a Brodin Pro Cutthroat Net

September 3, 2010 Leave a comment Go to comments

I recently ordered a medium Ghost net bag replacement (39 inch circumference at $29 total, the $5 shipping/handling is not disclosed on their website at all) to change out the net on my Brodin Pro Cutthroat net.  If you read my previous post on this net you’ll understand why.

I tried to figure out how I was going to capture the process to share on this blog.  Video would have been rather long and just typing the process … well … not too exciting, so what I decided to do is post the pictures of my process and add a voice recording to guide you through the pictures.

My voice recording is included below, all you need to do is play the MP3 file and follow along with the pictures which are part of this post.  The audio is 8 minutes and 35 seconds long*.

Enjoy and I think it’s time to go fish again!

    What did you not expect about the net? Do you not like it? I am wanting to use the same net on a homemade landing net.

      Maybe I should have been clearer on the post … what I expected was the ghost net shown on the Brodin website for the Cutthroat net, here is the link here:


      I think this style net looks better, it has elongated rectangles vs the hexagons on the one that was shipped. I was expecting the one pictured.

    Great recording and instructions! I put the same net bag on an old net I had in the garage. Works!

      Thanks Anders, glad the post was helpful to you. I can definitely say that I’m fishing more vs spending time getting a hook out of a mesh net.
