Editor's Notes

October 18, 2019:

Like a telescopic fishing pole, a telescopic fishing net can help save you some room, which makes transporting your gear just that much easier. But not to worry, as this feature doesn't come at the expense of usefulness or stability, qualities we've looked for as we've updated our choices. Many fishers won't be surprised to see Ranger or KastKing come out on top, as these are names that have appreciative followers for many reasons, quality and durability among them. We've also added an option from Ego at this time, the S2 Slider. It is offered in a wider array of net materials than many, and it boasts a modular design that lets you switch and change as needed. It's a little more expensive than many, but the clever construction is worth it for the serious. And, finally, we elected to add a kid's option, the Oddspro Nylon. It's not exactly a top-of-the-line model, but for younger children who might not be gentle on your gear, it's a good alternative.
