Float:  hmmm.. no.  Wood handles, 6' long.  You could attach some type of float to the end of the handle to make it stand upright if dropped.

Looking into aluminum handles... either hollow or foam-filled to provide better float-ability....

I'd love one that floats....ideally is filled w/ foam or sealed somehow....I'm more concerned w/ it being idiot proof vs. the cost.   I read elsewhere about people using telescoping pool handles filled w/ foam.....

I can't recall how long the pole of my net is....is 6' pretty standard?

Keep me in mind - I'm definitely interested.

Thats what I was thinking too GV... foam filled handles. Wink  I'm looking into 1-1/4" sch 40 aluminum as handles.... stout, strong, and still relatively lightweight.

Seaweed rolled up in his truck this evening and dropped off my new dip net.  It is a beauty.  Thanks Seaweed.

If you have not purchased one of these bad boys....you need to.

I pity the crab in Season 2007.  They don't have a chance.

Enjoyed chatting w/ you Seaweed.  I look forward to going out w/ you some time this season.  Enjoy your time at the Waterman's show.

Not sure if it is true but Seaweed told me if you buy one of his nets you don't need traps or a trot line....all you have to do is stick the net in the water and crabs swim to it.....

Sounds too good to be true - but who am I to question a professional crabber?
