I recently purchased this net and loved it. Prior to this I had a net with mesh netting and both the fly and the fish would get tangled. The rubber net is tangle free and is much healthier for the fish.
I purchased the bow net which is a great size to hike with.,I have the 24' and it is the perfect size and shape for trout. The rubber netting works so much better than the standard threaded nets. No more wasting time with snagged flies!,Love the quality! The monogram on the handle makes it extra special! Perfect birthday gift for 16 year old son who has fallen in love with fly fishing.,Brodin makes great quality nets and in sizes that are great for different uses. The large bow really makes it easier to land fish than older oval bows. I have two, one for wade fishing and another for my drift boat, and they hold up very well. The clear mesh bags are also a big step forward since they weigh much less than the black catch and release nets and also the fish don't see them as easily in the water and try and get away every time you try and net them.,I have used this net for two seasons. Fish do not 'see it coming' and landing is easier. Hooks do not get caught it the net bag. I fish barbless, often the hook comes out in the net.
The rubber mesh is very easy on the fish, I put the handle between my knees and the fish can stay submerged while I get my camera ready. Then I can take a picture of the fish without subjecting it to extra handling. I recently ordered the magnetic release cord to go with it, I'll review that once I try it. The one drawback with this net is the shallow bag, I have had active fish jump out of the bag. Since I release all my fish that's not a big issue.
