I like this idea.  I keep taking stuff out of my box.  Basically my box now holds everything for rigging and 1 water proof box for jigs and some paddle tails.  I could probably take more out.

I find it easy to lay my net across the front of my boat with the handle pointed back to me.  I keep it leashed but it rarely moves, even in rough water.  When I'm fighting a fish it right in front and easy to access.  I started doing this because the flounder on the east coast go nuts on the surface and if you don't keep good pressure on them they can spit the hook fast.  I lost a couple by turning around to grab my net. Having the net in front of me makes it easy and I'm always ready.

That's one of the reasons I use a left handed reel. It's an easy reach without having to change hands on the rod when I grab the net. Now that I've moved it a little closer its even better. No need to turn around.

The charm of fishing is that it is the pursuit of what is elusive but attainable, a perpetual series of occasions for hope.  ~John Buchan
