Welcome to The Lasso Net Company
I'm Rod Presnell, the inventor and founder of The Lasso Net Company in Tallahassee, Florida. A retired Pharmacist, I am a consummate tinkerer with a lifelong passion for fishing. As a native of Gadsden County, Florida, I've spent a lifetime fishing our local lakes, area rivers and along the Gulf Coast from St. Marks to Indian Pass. It was just another typical fishing day in 1994 when the Lasso Net journey began. Like many fishermen, my small fishing boat was full of tackle, including various rods, lures, hooks and of course, my landing net. And as any fisherman can attest, it was the net that always seemed to get tangled up with anything it came in contact with. That's when the idea to invent a tangle-free telescoping net first struck me.
I set out to invent my net, constantly fine tuning it over the years. For the original design, I began with a hand made prototype constructed of steel tubing and makeshift metal arms assembled with store bought hinges and bolts. Over the years, I've made constant improvements and experimented with a variety of materials. The result is a corrosive-free product featuring flexible yet sturdy arms that support a convenient net that neatly stows away in its own aluminum handle. My patented Lasso Net is designed to be a tangle-free landing net that telescopes in and out of its own handle. I truly hope you enjoy yours as much as I have enjoyed designing and using my own.
Our small, family-run business welcomes your questions, your orders and of course, your Lasso Net fishing stories, so please don't hesitate to contact us. Additional sizes and versions of the net will be developed in the future. We look forward to hearing from you.
