With 10 inches of reach, the Brookie Rising Net is the perfect hand net for any serious angler.
Got to use it for trout fishing. Love it. Perfect size and very sturdy...
Love this net, it is truly the perfect size for CO wade fishing. Small enough to stay out of your way, big enough to handle your next PB trout. I have put well over 100 days on my net dropping it, smashing it on bushes, falling in the river, stepping on it, and the thing is still as good as new. The build quality is crazy strong yet light enough to not think twice about putting in a 15 mile day in the high country. All around perfect net, only knock is it does not float so be careful where you set it.
This net is awesome. It's a great size for the wade fisherman, and unless you're catching trout that I couldn't even dream of catching in Colorado it's a big enough net to handle any fish you're bringing in without being so big that it's obnoxious to carry. You can also add a net handle extension to make it longer, which is cool if you go back and forth between wading and a boat, or if you just prefer a longer handle. I've also unscrewed the handle to pack it into a suit case and that has worked fine. Haven't found anything about this net that I dislike, well worth the money.
Bombproof materials, deep net bag, excellent opening size and shape, and it has a sealed gasket handle for whatever you want to keep in there. Looks cool too, genuinely not sure what else you could want in a net.
