Bass Pro Shops’ Gold Conservation Series Net

As space-saving nets go, Bass Pro Shops’ Gold Conservation Series net wins the prize.

As space-saving nets go, Bass Pro Shops' Gold Conservation Series net wins the prize. Its 25-inch equilateral triangular hoop collapses and folds flush against the handle. The fine, flat-bottomed, rubber-coated mesh provided flounder, a weakfish and an 18-pound striper that I landed gently prior to release. It easily stowed in a fish box and in the under-gunwale racks aboard my boat. Available with fixed ($40) and telescopic ($50) 35-inch handles. basspro.com
