May 17, 2018 By: Erin Block

Fishpond has released the El Jefe River Armor Net to the The Nomad River Armor edition net series. The series of nets is constructed with a core of carbon fiber and fiberglass, “designed with the boulder-hopping bushwhackers in mind who demand durability.”

Read more in the press release below.

New Fishpond River Armor Net

From Fishpond: With the addition of the all new El Jefe River Armor Net, we have created the most bombproof collection of wading nets on the market – the lineup covers all species and preferences with the El Jefe, the Mid-Length, and the Emerger Net. The Nomad River Armor edition nets are constructed with a core of carbon fiber and fiberglass, and an outer layer of woven DuPontTM Kevlar® fiber and carbon fiber. This composition was designed with the boulder-hopping bushwhackers in mind who demand durability.

River Armor El Jefe Net

The length of the El Jefe still works well with waist packs for walk wading and provides great reach for getting big fish into the net. A deep bag swallows trophy fish without ever feeling cumbersome to the angler and the El Jefe is at home in a boat or on the bank.

  • Carbon Fiber, DuPontTM Kevlar® fiber, Fiberglas Composite
  • Waterproof/weatherproof & buoyant
  • 5” Length
  • 13”W x 21.75”L Head
  • Bag depth of 14″
  • Weight with rubber bag: 535g or 1.23lbs
  • Scale on handle
  • Black rubber net

River Armor Mid-Length Net

Our Nomad Hand Net suited the vest-types, and the Guide Net got the pros’ attention. The hardcore lumbar pack wearer, however, wanted a net with a little more length in the handle so they could stuff it between their pack and their back. The Mid-Length Nomad is it.

  • Carbon Fiber, DuPontTM Kevlar® fiber, Fiberglas Composite
  • Waterproof/weatherproof & buoyant
  • 37” Length
  • Weight with rubber bag – 400g or .88lb
  • 13”W x 18”L Head
  • Black rubber net

River Armor Emerger Net

The Nomad Emerger net was designed to work with both packs and vests. The longer handle can easily tuck behind a pack but is not too long to hang off the back of a vest.

  • Carbon Fiber, DuPontTM Kevlar® fiber, Fiberglas Composite
  • Waterproof/weatherproof & buoyant
  • 32” Length
  • Weight with rubber bag – 430g or .95lbs
  • 125”W x 19.25”L Head
  • Black rubber net
