- Rubber, non-coated and coated nylon are the most common materials used in fish netting. Netting is also available in knotted and knotless form. Choose coated nylon or rubber for a smooth, fish-friendly finish. Non-coated nylon and knotted netting can be abrasive, removing scales and protective slime from your game fish. Use non-coated netting for harvesting fish, and look for smoother materials for catch-and-release fishing
- Consider the size of the mesh holes in your netting. Anglers fishing small, delicate fish should opt for tight, micro-mesh. Larger fish require larger mesh holes.
- Are you fishing steelhead or crappies? Anglers after large fish should look for wide hoop and net, while smaller fish require a smaller net
A contoured handle helps you maintain tight grip during use. Most net handles are made from aluminum, fiberglass, wood or a composite material.
Cast nets and seine nets are common methods for trapping bait. Cast nets are designed to be thrown over a school of bait fish. Look for a cast net with reinforced stitching and secured weights for easy use. A seine net is a piece of netting that extends between two pols. These nets are used for wading into streams or small pounds, with the net moved against the current to trap small bait.
Landing and fishing nets with extendable handles provide extra utility on the water. For convenient storage an, look for a net that folds to fit easily in a storage locker.
