    Fish wrangling equipment

    Sean is getting me an early birthday present, a fish sock net. Can you tell me if this one is any good or not?

    That is the type that holds water (good thing) with mesh at the end that makes it easy to adjust the amount of water in the net...another good thing. I need a new sock net, mine holds water but doesn't have the mesh....I might bid against you!

    I have that exact net (along with three others ) and I find I reach for this one first. It is a good net, especially for the money. Later..Gary

    I got one a few years back and it is a lifesaver with the big ones...mine developed a slight tear in it this year and I sewed it back up with some dental floss so far it is holding up very well....

    I got that same style sock net from fancy koioutlet here in San Jose, it works as it should no complaints from me...it's way cheaper in price than my matsuda socknet that I have had for around 7 years now, so we will see if it last just as long.
