    Go to this home page then click on the net you want to checkout. $44 for large rubber net that is telescopic.

    The Ketchum Release works great. Never get that nasty slime on your hands, and it's light too.

    I found one that I like. I might just drive over there and get one . That way I could fish the Bitterroot

    If you can, go with a "ghost bag". It has the advantage of rubber but is opaque... theory is, the fish are not as likely to see it and freak out as they do. It feels like some manner of silicone type material. As with rubber, hooks don't snag in the bag and it is easier on the fish.

    Jim, a telescoping net with a rubber bag sounds like what you need. Go buy the sucker.

    Fish don't even see my net until it is too late. Never understood the reason for clearish net. If you are holding your net in the water you are doing it wrong. Net out of water, fish comes in, quick scoop and done. I only catch fish big enough to tail anyway.:)
