Closeouts. Save space and prevent tangled gear with Brodin Landing Nets' collapsible fishing net. The telescoping handle extends and locks easily, and the rubber handle has exceptional grip to help land trophy fish.

This is a great net to have strapped to my gear bag and bring along in a boat or on my back for the day. The only thing I would mention as being a downside is that there is no way to lock the net in the folded position. I can see why this might have been left out to allow quick access and sort of one handed "shake open" operation when dealing with a fish, but when I have it slung over my shoulder I would prefer it to not open up and bang the back of my legs while I'm wading around or hiking through brush.

I havent acutally used this net on fish yet due to drought and lack of water HOWEVER, I bought the net to aid in landing large carp with my flyrod. I net folds up very compact and is crazy light. it expands out to full size fast and it extends out far and easy. It will be a welcome addition to the regular carpin gear as well as when I surf fish in the ocean.

I haven't used this net yet, but it appears to be well designed and constructed, as one would expect from Brodin.
The net folds to approximately 3-inch diameter X 2 ft. long. Opening, closing, and adjusting handle length requires 2 hands, but these adjustments are easily done and could likely be accomplished with a rod in one hand. I bought this net to use where space is a consideration such as on my one-man pontoon or kayak. It should fit the bill.
