Grabbing the net loop opposite the handle, a full twist folds the whole loop into three ... like a key chain ring. A simple tuck of the netting into the center of those loops and it slides right into the holster. It's actually stable enough that when you pull the net out of the holster, you have to flick it a little to get it to open.
Since I wear a tackle belt, it fits right onto that. I understand some people don't have a belt to hang it on ... won't work for them, I guess.
Barbed hooks rule!
My definition of work: Doing something in which effort exceeds gain.

The belt carry was absolutely the only reason I don't have one, the thing worked very well and is as light as any net I've handled.

For wading the little blue lines I have a very old bent wood net that I replaced the old course cotton netting with a Tenkara fine mesh. Traditional yet trout friendly. In my kayak I keep a 20" Surehold.

Everyone that replied is wrong. You need a net like above that I have. It's only $200 so just get one!
Lol all kidding aside. That net did cost $200. Was custom made for me by a custom wood worker. net builder. One of my best friends had it made for me It does not catch more fish, but it sure is pruddy!

Either one of those will work for me, they both look the part and I like wood.

What net holder do you use? I have been looking at a magnet one. Haven’t nailed down what brand though.

For yeas/decades I used the elastic cord that came with the net snapped to the ring at the neck of the vest I had, the cord had enough stretch to scoop a fish when wading and still spring up out of the way when released, Eventually that wore out and currently it has a 6" piece of Bonnie Braid tied to the cheap magnet thing from Walmart
looks like this ~$8 it came with a coil retracter cord that I thrashed.

Dang been packed, wrinkled.
Got a 6 aluminum with rubber bag for the blow up boat. Its round if you can make it out. Catch and release.

Elastic clipped under the arm is something I will have to try, although I'm seldom wading when I use the net these days. Good picture of your arrangement.
