The Measure Net
Measure Net - It Works
I bought the small measure net for small stream trout fishing and it has worked great so far. It's extremely lightweight, and hardly noticeable when not in use (I hang it from my belt with magnetic net release - which is not included).
The netting itself is fine for what it is. It's a mesh netting - not a rubber C&R bag - so sometimes when I fish two flies at one time, the other tends to get caught in the netting. I figured that would happen going in, so I'm not detracting for that.
The only thing keeping this from a 5 star rating is the cosmetics. There are so many beautiful trout nets out there, this one is a bit of an eyesore in my opinion. But for functionality, it's great.

Ok but not great
Unfortunately in my experience there is too much drag caused by the mesh material. When going to scoop a fish the net it has a lot of drag in the water. This has caused me to loose a lot of fish as the net is difficult to maneuver because of the resistance. It has a good concept and design but the net material needs to be changed out in my opinion. Hard to measure a fish that doesn't end up in the net!

I love it
Great net! Easy on the fish and easy to get a fast measurement for stories later.
