I have the long handle net and carry like Mike describes above. I like it and as advertised they serve as a wading staff when needed. If you find yourself going after really big fish look to the boat net because of the larger hoop. The guide size with the 13 X 18 is good until the fish are over 2 foot. You can still scoop them but you need some finesse on larger fish to get them in the bag.
All in all based on the fact that I chose the size I bought I give it a 10 out of 10 rating.
