Major Supplier Of Specialty Commercial Fishing Netting

Since 1965, Mid-Lakes Corporation's netting products have been known for unbeatable quality, legendary durability and trouble-free design. While our core business is in the sport fishing industry, over the years we've found that many of our products have crossover use in the fisheries, fish management and hatchery professions. As a result, we've become a major supplier of specialty netting products for hundreds of state and federal forestry and wildlife agencies, universities and conservation organizations.

Because Mid-Lakes is a prime manufacturer of knotless nylon netting and net products, we can be flexible and creative. Using components from the items in our master catalog, we can "mix and match" to fabricate many other styles of nets. Click on the topics below for examples:.
