Frabill’s traditional Wooden Trout Nets are individually hand-crafted from high-quality hardwood for long-lasting, durable performance. The Trout Net is designed with an 11'' x 15'' teardrop hoop, 8'' wooden handle and a deep clear, tangle-free rubber basket that protects fish’s slime and prevents hooks from snagging. This trout-and angler-friendly net includes a handy elastic lanyard with a clip closure for hassle-free attachment to fishing vest, chest pack or belt loop. Imported.

Not bad overall, great for price! I really like this net.. I've had it for about a year and it has seen it's fair share of bush whacking and landed fish. This net is very deep and wide for landing larger fish, and is very gentle on the fish once you get them in the net. I had some large 20+ inch bull, brown and rainbow trout in this net with no space constraints. Also, the price point is just right in my opinion. I do have issues with the overall quality, but I would still say this net is worth the price of admission. I have had to repair the net twice; once to 're-tie' the stitching attaching the net to the wood, and once to repair the wood that split between the ply's of wood in the handle. Both were simple fixes and the latter just required wood glue. I've also lost this net once, when my magnetic net release failed after landing a fish. Funny thing is, I have a picture with the trout, and my net is floating helplessly away down the Bow River. Thankfully, through a local forum, a gent found my net 10km downstream and kindly returned it to me! He said he was going to keep it until he saw my post and didn't want to anger the fishing gods! The net was a bit yellowed, but no worse for the wear.. I was amazed! If you want a rubber net, and don't want to pay a ton, you will be happy with this net! My suggestion is to keep an eye on any maintenance before it get's out of hand. March 11, 2014
Poor Quality I ordered this net after reading all of the good reviews. After receiving the product I was disappointed. The net feels very cheap with poor quality wood and stitching that looks as though it will not stay together. The net itself was not stitched and anchored in enough places and had some gaps at the top. For $40 I'm not expecting a superb net, but to me this net is more like a $10 dollar product. It's getting sent right back. July 16, 2013
Great net This is an awesome net. Coming upon the 1 year mark and I love it. I fish 2 times a week. This net is durable, practical and comfortable. Not sure what the weight comments are all about? Why spend 100 bucks on the same thing? November 6, 2011
Good net for price but heavy As some others have said, good net, no tangled, hooks come loose much easier but it is a bit heavy. I use and highly recommend a net keeper in case your magnet or clip comes off, lost my last net since I didn't have this and watching it float down the river is not fun. I got one called big blue by some company in Utah and it works good so far. I will stick with rubber nets from now on though so good purchase. September 5, 2011

A: 
It's fit a 22 inch Bull, a 24 inch brown, and a 21 inch rainbow for me before... It might do the trick for steel!

A: 
Probably too small for a steelhead. Frabill makes a slightly large version which would work better.

A: 
Smaller steelhead, yes, but anything over 28-30" would be pushing the limits...

A: 
The total weight of the net is 13oz. However, the majority of the weight is in the netting itself, so it feels heavier than it really is.

I hope this helps.
