The best net for fly fishing has a large hoop and deep bag, like our Wide-Mouth Guide Net.

We strive to design and develop the best fly-fishing nets on the market. This collection includes eco-friendly materials, larger hoops for easier landing, and hook-resistant mesh.

When you’re fly fishing, carry your net on your person with a magnetic net release, retractable net leash, or with a net holster. These accessories allow you to stow your fly-fishing net on your fishing vest so you can reach it easily when it’s time to land your catch.

Rubber nets are better than knotted nets for trout since they better protect the fish scales and reduce harm to the fish. We recommend our eco-friendly PVC-free fishing nets from Brodin.

Your trout net depth should be between 13 and 18 inches, with 15 inches being a safe bet if you’re buying your first one and you’re not sure what to expect.

We’ve found that the best material for fishing nets is durable, knotless, and hook-resistant, which is why we recommend our Wide-Mouth net series and our eco-friendly nets from Brodin.
