Perfect. Then you can throw it in the corner and never take it out, like mine.

I like to carry as little as possible. Where others look to find ways to carry more, I am constantly searching for ways to carry less. i also fish from a boat a good 80% of the time so when I am wading it's because I enjoy the simplicity of just me, a rod and what I can carry in a small pack or my pockets. I learned a long time ago that carrying 500 flies and every contraption out there does not help you catch a single fish more.

I think it's all personal preference as to what is considered "needed" on the water. With that said IMO a net with a good magnetic release is a staple to my being on the water. Not only does a net help you land a fish quicker stressing it less, but makes pics of the fish easier (again less stress) and a good magnetic release makes carrying and using it simple. In the past 3 yrs I have done like said above and stopped carrying a ton of stuff, normally only take 1-2 fly boxes with me rather than the 4-5 I use too. And even switched the a chest pack and haven't used my vest in about 3 yrs (except for steelheading) but no matter what I take with me a net clipped on my mag-release is a staple for me.

One thing I feel is a got to have is a good quality pair of polarized sunglasses. On/in my vest I have a few items box of flies, some tippets, strike indicators, nippers, gink, and hemostat. (So will soon be adding a net with magnet.) This is all I want to take with me

For a good quick net release these are good. Not sure if they are on sale in US yet but I'd imagine they are.

I use a magnetic release at the loop on my back, but I hook my net with the handle down.  (Zip tie the detached magnet part to the net's hoop)  Take the supplied shock cord from the handle to a point low on your vest/pack, same side as your net hand.  This acts as a safety and allows you to drop the net without it floating away.  Also does not have the net rocketing at your head if you unknowingly snag it on branches while bushwacking.

There is a possibility to break off with a magnet on the hoop is why I rigged to handle. The singled out stretch cord keeps from loosing net not strong enough to spring back. If mine hangs itll break if I dont stop...
