Bass Pro Shops® Gold Series Replacement Nets
Had an all rubber net, the heavy rubber, and was great against lure tangles and snags but weighed a lot for when your by yourself. Hard to hold the rod in one hand and net the fish with the other. This one fit the bill nicely. Has the same tangle free characteristics of the heavy rubber but way less weight. Saved buying a new net for $40 or more. I saw a Frabil was $75, same net. Only problem was they don't come with any instructions. Had to play around awhile before I could figure it out. Had to bend my net frame a little to get it on there. No instructions in the package or anywhere on the internet that I could find. Would be nice if Bass Pro Shops or the manufacture had instructions online.

Easy, Once you know how
The net appears to be well constructed, but like others, I had no idea how to get it on the rim. But alas ... an epiphany!
Trick is hold the frame over the net as you want it installed. Grab the 2 open ends together and essentially fold the net in half. Then reverse hands so the net openings face the frame ends. Slide one open end onto the frame and install roughly half of the net fully extended. You can then install a couple more inches onto the frame, fully extend that around the frame, and repeat until finished. That 4 or 5 inch gap between the two ends allows it to install easily.
Once the trick is known, installation is rather easy (I'm embarrassed to say).

This is the easiest way to upgrade and save money.the quality is very good and the ease of replacement is the best! It's also safe on fish your returning to the water!

Bought the original net and it tore easily. Bought the replacement net and the net has pulled apart at the seams.
