If you are looking for a net big enough to haul in trophy sized trout and strong enough to last a very long time this net is the ticket! I bought this net just before a guide trip last year for a fishing trip in Idaho. They day before I had broke the hoop of my large boat net and was desperate for some sort of net to bring along. I tied the handle from my broken net onto this and landed fish all day without any issues. Since then I have purchased a larger net for my drift boat, but I still use this for wading trips. Buying this trout net was possibly the best accident ever, because I found a new favorite wading net.
It might not have the traditional look of a classic wooden net, but if that doesn’t concern you, this might be the one for you!
The things I love about this net:
- The super deep netting easily keeps fish safe and secure while looking for my camera.
- The super strong hoop and handle don’t feel like they will ever break.
- Rubber coated handle gives a great grip and it’s just the right size.
- The netting material is soft enough to keep the trout safe for release with very little friction from the net. It also has a rubber coating that prevents flies (and I am sure lures) from getting tangled for easy removal.
The Frabill rubber handled trout net is the perfect size for using in a kayak, canoe or float tube. It’s super durable, yet soft netting will not be torn by trees or brush on those rugged wading trips. At a cost of $20 this net is an absolute steal and I can honestly tell anyone to buy one with confidence, because taking the price, durability and functionality all into consideration this net is Awesome!
