Bass Pro Shops Gold Series Folding Landing Net with 35'' Fixed Handle
So far so good, this net seems to be holding up well under heavy use and its so easy to use.

When I first saw this net, I was skeptical. At first glance, I figured it was like any other flip net on the market. Once I used it a couple times I found it be far different.
I like the compact nature of the net, making it portable for using in a kayak or on a trout fishing adventure. The long handle makes and quick net deployment makes one hand usage a valued asset in my canoe.
I also note the fish friendly rubberized net. It appears the fish just slide out of the net and back to the water on the release. I have to yet tangle my hooks in the rubberized net as well which increases my fishing time with less tangles.

Great choice in landing net
Purchased this net a few weeks ago. I have used the net to boat several smallmouth bass since then, some over 4 pounds, and the net has been solid. The fold away style is very convenient. The net is completely out of the way while under way on the boat and casting. The netting material has been very resistant to hooks getting caught.
The product would be a resounding 5 star review, if there was not one issue I have with the net. After only a few uses the locking cam mechanism is showing some wear. It is minor wear so far, but it showed up after only a few uses. I am worried about the long term durability of the locking mechanism on the fold out net.
Time will tell about the wear, but as for function and convenience, so far this net would be hard to beat.

Awesome Net/Great Value
Net easily deploys with one hand while bringing fish to the boat with rod in the other hand. I really like the non-rigid front to keep those non-boaters from knocking fish off the hook with the front of the net, very forgiving!! Only wish i would have bought the extending handle. Don't spend three figures on a net.....this is the "one" I have been searching for!!
