This Trout net was purchased with apprehension. I have always had a knotted net. I saw this and thought why not give it a shot. When it arrived I was quite impressed with its construction. The netting is rubber which I expected to be very stiff. I was totally wrong. In fact it is very soft and flexible. The cage ring and handle is made of bamboo that has been polyurethane coated. It has a nice cord attached for protection against losing it down stream. The unit can be laid almost completely flat or hung out of the way. From the moment I opened the package, which was cushioned very well by the shipper, I was immediately impressed and happy with my purchase. These nets can range in the high eighties to the low hundreds of dollars for almost exactly the same net here for around $30.00. Why wouldn't I be impressed. I see nothing at all negative with this purchase.
This net is a welcome addition to my fishing arsenal.
