I have a small/average size wooden catch and release net....clear rubber and a dime a dozen. I went on line looking and have checked out a few shop without much luck. I’m looking for something light that works. Suggestions and recommendations appreciated.

I have a nice small MeasureNet. Lightweight and quick release net. Like the fact it measures fish also.

I have had my current one for a decade. No complaints.

THIS! I love mine for its light weight and the ability to measure without having to handle the fish and mess around with a tape measure.

Love my Stevens but the rubber basket rotted out after about six years or so. My guess is not enough UV inhibitors
