Today is Day #3 for our special holiday promotion of “12 Gifts for Christmas.” Today’s gift is the Measure Net. This is a net that is used to land fish once they have been caught. We have all sizes available from a small wading net to a large drift boat net. The net features a ruler that allows you to measure the fish without removing the fish from the net, or the water. This is a great conservation feature and greatly improves the odds of a released trout surviving. It also allow you to leave the measuring stick at home. These nets are made of a strong aluminum tubing and have a durable rubber handle that allows the net to float.
