SF Fishing Landing Net
I am delighted with the SF catch and release style landing net with the soft rubber mesh with SMALL holes. The construction and finish of the handle and hoop are beautiful and, importantly, the rubber mesh with small holes prevents little native trout from slipping right through the net. The overall length of 24" and inside hoop dimensions of almost !6" x 9" will also permit landing fish up to 20" when the need arises. The soft white rubber mesh prevents snagging brush while walking along the stream, and will not catch your fly hooks when the fish is netted. This is a very nice feature, especially when fishing multiple fly rigs where the lead fly or the dropper fly is flipping around when you're trying to deal with the fish in the net. So you have a very versatile net at your side. You can easily pay 2 or 3 times this price for a similar net but it will not function (or look, in my opinion) any better than this one. Also, the magnetic net attachment with furled retriever cord included with this landing net make it an incredible value for the price. I have been fly fishing for over 60 years and would say this is one of the better deals on equipment that I have encountered.
