soften up your cast net
Does anyone have a better way to soften up a castnet than soaking it in the washing machine in hot water and two cups of fabric softner. It works great but I am always wanting to try somthing new.
come on now I know with all this knowledge here there has got to be a better way.
ok maybe I asked the wrong question. Does any one know how to soten up a new cast net other than the way I mentioned before.

Get one that's over 50 years old, then it will hardly ever get stiff.
thanks for yall help. I think I might try the plain water. I have a few days to soften up a new net. and if that doesn't work I guess I can go with my only tried and true method.
I just leave mine in a 3 gallon bucket with plain old tap water[well water]. It stays soft, as soft as it will get.
Fabric softner is the only thing I ever heard to use. Although I just use mine. I never store it in water I just wad it up and stick it in a bucket.
i wonder how that reel magic would work on a mono net?
i just take a 5 gallon bucke put in some fabric softerner then fill it up with water lay a brick on top of net to keep it in the bucket after a couple of days take it out rinse it off good hang it up to dry then put it in a bucket of water with a lid works great for me
