When I first came home to the ranch to manage it, I used the old nets hung up in the woodhouse. Blew every one of them out. String nets, even if kept off the floor, just don't keep for decades. I lost more than a couple bigs ones as they tore through the bottom of the net. In order to untangle the mess from the snags (and I always fish in snags), I had to cut the fish loose. This year I bought a few new nets when they went on sale.
