This Measure Net is made of strong aluminum tubing with a durable rubber handle that allows the net to float. This is a great net for a boat or the beach. Large trout, steelhead, most salmon, shad, bass, sea trout and bonefish will all fit in this net. The telescoping handle extends your reach. The net hoop is detachable from the handle for easy storage. The mesh in the net bag is rubber coated to be easy on the fish and measures fish to 40-inches. Jeff Abel the inventor of The Measure Net calls this model the Guide Net. Us guys that live and work in steelhead country would call this "the steelhead net". It is the perfect size for most steelhead. A net like this has the advantage for catch and release. A fish can be corralled in the net instead of being beached where it might be subject to injury. This net will save lives.
The method further includes the steps of securing a first end of an elongate, flexible tape measure to the base so that a longitudinal axis of the tape measure is substantially coincident with the longitudinal axis of symmetry of the base. After the base has been secured to a preferably horizontally disposed support surface, a fish is positioned atop the front side of the base with its mouth near the first end of the base, and with the longitudinal axis of symmetry of the fish in substantial coincidence with the longitudinal axis of symmetry of the base. The bottom and top sections of the base are folded in wrapping relation to the fish if the girth of the fish is relatively small and at least one strap is used if the girth of the fish is large enough to prevent the base from wrapping around the fish as aforesaid. The tape measure is then extended along the length of the fish to measure the length of the fish.

Brown trout have a limit of 1 fish per day and these fish must measure at least 24inches in length.
