Our Catch and Release nets have a soft, clear rubber net which will protect delicate fish. It is less likely to tangle and will not snag your flies or tangle dropper rigs. It won’t rot or mildew. It weighs less and is great for wading, fly, stream fishing, or shore fishing. Great for backpacking into streams because of the lightweight. It is 24″ long and the basket is 11″ x 15″. It comes with a free 7.5″ x 4.5″ x 1.75″ black fly box (Item #1211). This is a rugged durable watertight box with a detachable swing leaf and sure grip exterior.
