Not all nets are created equal. Generally, nets help with fish safety, especially with trout, keeping your hands off the fish. However, some nets take far greater a toll on trout than dry hands. Other nets won't let your hook tangle in them, so you can spend the next hour fishing instead of playing hook surgeon. And remember, size does matter. So find a net that will help you land the trophy, while helping said trophy live on to fight another day. It's a win-win for everyone.
