The DAM Floating Landing Nets are floating with the full frame on the surface. This is a great help for unhooking fish because the net can never get lost. The rubber mesh solves the problem of hooks getting stuck in the net, dries quickly and is practically resistant to any smell. The fabric around the frame minimizes the chance of losing a fish during netting because the hook gets stuck in the mesh. The 2 available shapes cover all fishing styles from fly fishing, to seatrout fishing or spinning for predators.
