Bass Pro Shops Gold Series Folding Landing Net with 24'' Handle
Easily opens and stores away
opens and stowes away with ease.Its a little loose when in the open position, but seems to be holding up just fine.I wish the handle was a little bigger in diameter. The coated net is holding up great and hook removel is a breeze.Its a fish friendly net and I will purchase another if this one ever wears out..

Hooked on Net
The Castalia Outdoors flip net is a must have for any serious angler.
I use the short kayak net for both kayak fishing and shore stream trout fishing. I like portability of the net as I trasport my NuCanoe upside down on the roof of my car, portability is key. I have to be able to remove my equipment from my NuCanoe efficently.
I also use it for shore fishing streams. I like how it folds up into itself and fits perfectly on my trout vest. The deep net and long handle allows me to get a longer reach on those steep banks; the rubberized netting prevents me from getting tangled up in the brush while protecting the delicate skin of the fish I catch, allowing for smoother releases.

Best Folding Landing Net
I needed a folding landing net, something I could carry strapped to the top of my soft side tackle bag, having a long handle, light weight and a large enough net to handle bass but also netting that would handle trout and panfish.
The Pro Shops Gold 24" Folding Landing Net has fit the bill perfectly. It flips open one handed and allows me to net a fish without having to stoop to much, a good thing as my knees are getting older! Also a good thing when fishing from a rocky wall. The netting is soft and fish friendly, even for panfish and trout. I've put away my standard pattern trout landing net for good.

Made it three trips before it fell apart
I really liked this net, but it has only made three trips before it fell apart. I mean, it literally FELL APART. The rubber between the two ends has broken on both ends, the netting is rubbing apart at the ends, and a rivet fell out and one ends spins freely. I am a trout fishing guide and I thought this net would be great, but I have only used it on three trips and it is falling to pieces. I am returning it as soon as I go back to bass pro.
