Landing nets are just one of the essential items every fly angler should have. Being able to control your catch and return it safely to the water with minimal stress is extremely important for the fish and the system it lives in. The 16R landing net has a lightweight aluminum frame with comfortable, EVA, rounded handle grip. The basket is a black, knotless, rubberized, nylon mesh, perfect for catch and release. The base of the handle has a permanently attached, 8-inch, looped stretch-cord tether.
