    Default hand net reccomendation

    All,

    Looking for a hand net for walking the banks. Only problem is it needs to be large enough to land steelies.

    Any preferences? A lot of the hand nets are too small. The Fish Pond Nomad hand net is 13"x 18"....

    Ideas?

    A buddy just got the Nomad mid length boat net and it looks to be easy enough to carry while hiking and able to handle a decent size steelie. Pretty pricey though....

    Why not go with the boat version of the Nomad? It's only seven inches longer.

    Dunno where you'd get it and don't recall the brand, but it's worth looking.

    A bud came back from New Zealand with a net having a telescoping handle and a hoop/bag big enough for big trout and plenty for steelhead. Bonus points go to the spring loaded scales built into the handle.

    You might go to some of the NZ sites and sniff around. I bet you can find examples, as well as brands, and maybe even sources here in the US.

    The brodin Coho is what i am looking for. The larger hoop is nice and its not too long to hit you in the back of the legs to carry around. Thanks for the recommendations all.

    I ended up with the Nomad mid length boat net. Lighter, easier to take care of and a larger hoop and handle. Thanks again
