I used mine for the first time extensively on the San Juan/NM a week or so ago. Although I expect many would use it in lieu of a net, I used it in conjunction with my net. Found that I could return good-sized (17-20") trout back to the water much quicker and in better shape using it than I could otherwise just using my net. BTW, didn't find the 8" Rising Crocodile "hemostat" particularly useful, and should have saved my money there, but the money was well spent for the Lippa4Life.
