I was wondering if anybody could direct me to or suggest a good landing net for steelies that has netting that is soft (Like nylon) that won't harm the fish?
I have a hard time tailing a fish when I'm by myself.
Frabill (www.frabill.com) -- I think it's one 'l' in the name -- make a knotless net that comes recommended.
There are also a couple of 'fish cradles' that don't harm the fish as much as conventional nets. May be difficult to use when walking the banks (vs. a boat). Have seen them at www.berrysbait.com (prices are in Canadian dollars -- don't have a heart attack).
