2) The measurements are accurate so puts stretching the truth out the window
Youre saying you have just the plain fabric net, not the rubber coated one? I have a rubber basket net but have considered a measurenet.

Yeah it's just the plain off the shelf bass pro shop purchase of the measure net. I think the fabric has a little coating of plastic on it.

It's a great lightweight net, the caribiner helps keep it out of they way, but if I am fishing a double or triple set up and catch a fish I always snag one of the flies in the net on release. That being said it isn't worth upgrading to a $100 net right now so I will stick with this for my current fishing. If I go after lake run browns this fall again I will get a big one.

Going to go the route of the brodin streambase firehole net. As fall approaches I'll look for a bigger net for steelies.

Thanks for all the help guys.

Did you get the net , and have you got to use it.

I have a B-Day coming up and will probably have some funding coming my way for frivolous purchases. I already have overpriced nippers and hemostats so thinking round it out with a spend net.

The rubber nets are worth the extra money, they really make things allot easier.

I did get the net, I just haven't been out to fish with it, were in the process of moving (and me fixing up the house) I haven't had any free time. Were hoping to be moved in this coming Saturday so perhaps a Father's Day trip is in order hopefully and I'll get to use the net.

I can say it looks very nice and is very lightweight!

I bought one of those Brodin's with the ghost bag, a teardrop shaped hoop that's 14 inches. I love the way hooks just bounce off it. The trout don't seem to like it, but they hate everything about fishing! CJ

Cabela's has a rubber net that would work nicely on rivers for $20 right now.

I was lucky and received a Brodin with Ghost net for Christmas a couple of years ago. I absolutely love the net. The rubber makes it a little heavier to travel with on a plane but much easier to deal with flies after unhooking a fish.

You guys are killing me

I fish where the majority of the fish require no net. However it is better to net them and release than me perform the iron claw on them as I dehook. So I only need a small net, but "what if" I catch a big one, "what if I go somewhere different", "do I need a small Brodin and a large Brodin" I have a measure net that snags midges so " do I tolerate that", do I buy a rubber bag for that, do I look cool,will the chicks dig it

The mental Olympics it requires me to rationalize such things is a encumbrance

That one you show there Jaybo is really screaming my name
