Need to get a new fish net. Considering a collapsible one. Does anyone use them?

Which net would you prefer?

(S-h-h-h-h! Tore up my brother's and need to replace it.)


On average, your heart beats 100,000 times a day. One day, one of those heartbeats will be your last. Then what?

The answer is found in Jesus Christ who said "I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly." John 10:10

Like the compactness of the BPS collapsible net, but it’s a bit flimsy. Have a Frabil collapsible. Have the Cabelas magnum net that has a handle that can slide up a little for storage. Of the 3, I like the Cabelas the best because it is the sturdiest of the bunch, but it does take up more room.

Frabil collapsible. I’m pretty sure that’s the brand.

I love my frabil hibernet. It stores in tiny places, it is a little tough to open but takes no space.

How about a less expensive fish net?

Go to Wal-Mart and get one that the handle retracts into the net. Your not going to find a net that collapses anywhere for cheap.

Personally I wanted the lightest net I could find with a longer handle. Got a Ranger aluminum handle rubber bag at sportsmen warehouse. I'm usually by myself and this net has performed superbly!

Whatever it is make sure it's rubber. I also like the EGO S2 Slider. I've seen some complaints it's not that strong, but I landed a 50"+ sturgeon in it two weeks ago without a problem.

I'm with RickS. If you fish by yourself, make sure its very lightweight.
