Excellent product ! I've used numerous fishing nets over the years and have had several problems with a lose hook becoming tangled in a nylon or cloth net. No such problem here. Net is very light and easy to handle. I liked it so much the wife asked for one as well and she loves it too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by JMG1 Good for the fish AND the fisherman
This net is a great solution for the trout fisherman. No tiny netting to get flies/hooks tangled in, plus the rubber is said to be better for the fish. I'm all for that.
Others have mentioned that this net feels heavy to them, but the first time I went out with this net, I actually had to check several times to make sure it was still hanging on my vest. No weight issues for me.

Great catch and release net that that doesn't tangle or catch hooks allowing safe and easy release of fish. Only downside is it is a little heavy.

Rated 2 out of 5 by MrChesterfield Does not fit the hand
I read all the reviews. I was encouraged enough to buy the Frabill and save the money over the more expensive versions. But now, it's going back.
At issue is this: The handle is is 1-1/2" wide and 5/8" thick and while the edges are eased, it's blocky. There is not comfortable way to grasp this thing. I have XL hands and getting a good grip on the thing is tough. It's shame because the fit and finish of the net is very good. It is, as others have said, on the heavy side. But the snag-free netting is excellent.
I want to like this net. But if I am going to have a tool, I need it to fit the way I work.
