I was setting around today trying to find something to do and since my lower unit is out of my boat fishing was out of the question. So I started organizing my fishing stuff. I was about to throw away an old umbrella net that was broken when I got an idea. I had broken this net like so many others while hauling up fish. The clap where the four frame wires connects always bends and if your lucky you might not lose the whole net. I have tried using washers and other things to reinforce the clamp but it always seems to bend. If you have ever used an umbrella net and hauled up a fish from a spillway you know exactly what I'm talking about. I came up with a solution to those junky umbrella net frames. I had an old bike laying around so I took the tire off of it and cut the spokes out. Then I took the tire off and zip tied the old umbrella net to it. Now all I have to do is find some good strong thin rope to tie onto the frame and attach a main line and I'm done. Dillon spillway here I come. No more stealing my umbrella nets when I get a catfish. I have included some pictures so people like me can visualize what I did.
