Default Landing Hand or Net

Hi to All,

Has anyone used one of these gizmo's. One problem I have with it is you still have to squeeze the fish or tail it. I wonder if it is any better than the knot-less nets that are now out. They say it is good for Salmon but it would not work with some of the Salmon I have caught unless you tail it. You would still have to handle the Salmon with your other hand with nothing on it. It may be good for smaller fish. I don't really know with out some first hand experience. Any comments?

Landing Hand

Detailed DescriptionThe best alternative to the traditional landing net! The Landing Hand is the catch and release angler's solution to getting a firm but gentle grip on fish. No more fumbling for a net and no more rough handling to get the fish and your fly separated from the mesh of the net. This fish-friendly "mitt" utilizes a knot-less mesh and clips to your belt for easy access. Simple to use - just slip your hand in, gently grip or tail the fish and admire your catch. Take a quick photo, then a kinder and gentler release. Comes with coil lanyard and designed for fish of all sizes - freshwater or saltwater.
