Does your landing net float? Do you wish it would? There’s no reason to buy a floating landing net when you can easily make your favorite landing net float with fishing net floats from Luna Sea Sports. Quality fishing net floats are durable, fit a variety of handle sizes, and go on and off the handle easily. This article is going to discuss the qualities of the Ultra Float from Luna Sea and why it should be on the handle of anything you don’t want sinking if it goes overboard.
Quality Foam Fishing Net Floats
Many think that pool noodles make good fishing net floats. Well, $10 styrofoam coolers can make a good cooler in a pinch too, yet fishermen still buy $500 coolers like the amazing ones from Yeti®. The reason? Quality. Pool noodles will not stand the test of time. They also require tape to hold them in place, and more of the handle needs to be covered because of the low density, cheap foam. Do you really want a fishing accessory that looks like a complete after-thought aboard your classy charter boat, adorning your $500 rod & reel combo? The proprietary foam that Luna Sea uses in the making of the Ultra Float and other foam fishing products is a result of years of research and testing. This foam is nothing like the Nerf® footballs or pool noodles you might be thinking of.
Removable Floats for Landing Nets
Sure, you can go buy a foam impregnated landing net that will float on its own. But in a few years, when wear and tear and UV damage leave the cheap, internal foam exposed to water for extended periods, there can be mold & mildew issues to deal with. So why give up using the favorite landing net you already own? You don’t have to with the Ultra Float.
Experienced fishermen know that different situations call for different landing nets. The fishing net floats that Luna Sea makes will easily slide on and off when you need them on a different landing net. Quick tip: use some coconut oil or water to lubricate the inside of the Ultra Float for super easy attachment & removal! The unique design holds solid without spinning or sliding, and it can fit a variety of handle sizes, from 7/8” to 1.5” diameters. There are 2 sizes and colors (blue or yellow) available in the Ultra Float:
- The Ultra Float 2 (UF2) model is 8″ long and 2″ thick.
- The Ultra Float 3 (UF3) is 8″ long and 3″ thick.
More Than Just a Flotation Aid for Fishing Landing Nets
Besides landing nets and gaffs, Ultra Floats have been used on a variety of items that fishermen or homeowners want to protect. Put them on these other items too, and never again worry about losing them at the bottom of a lake:
- Oars or paddles
- Selfie poles or GoPro® camera sticks! Looking for a floating selfie stick? Use what you already have and just add an Ultra Float from Luna Sea!
- Fishing rods – Attach one behind the reel of a longer handled fishing rod for great under-arm cushioning as well as a rod flotation device! Want to float a smaller fishing rod? Try the Cush-it!
Want to protect yourself from blisters? Ultra Floats also make great hand protectors when used on shovels, rakes, and other garden tools!
Test Your Equipment for Buoyancy First!
It’s important to test the buoyancy of your equipment with the Ultra Float first, before taking to any deep water. Some heavier objects may require 2 or more Ultra Floats to make them float. Also, it’s a good idea to cap off any poles that are hollow as they become heavier once water infiltrates them.
