Grand Prairie, TX —Frabill has netted back-to-back ICAST wins with its new Floating Trout Net in Best in Show for Fly Fishing Accessories. This follows last year’s Best in Show win for Bait Management with the 30-Quart Magnum Bait Station.
Wading clear, rumbling streams, or fishing quaint, secluded lakes, trout anglers are always searching for their next adventure. A proper landing net will ensure any fish released will survive for another day. Proper handling ensures a future for this precious resource, and a landing net is an essential piece of equipment to turn your hookup into an accomplishment.
Frabill developed the Floating Trout Net family to enable anglers to practice proper catch-and-release methods or to put a fish on the dinner table. The design of the Floating Trout Nets benefits fishermen who like to wade, fly fish or use their favorite watercraft. Frabill’s floating trout nets make it easy to land and release your catch safely and quickly.
The floating hoop keeps the net frame on the water surface for easy fish handling and holds the tangle-free micromesh netting in place and aides in the capture and release of feisty trout. The fish should not get away, and neither should your net, which is why it sports a comfortable rubber handle and includes a lanyard with a carabiner.
With the safety of the fish in mind, Frabill uses a classic hoop design in a variety of sizes and flat bottom netting, which supports fish evenly and prevents damage. The gunmetal finished hoop will not spook fish as they come to the net and offers durability for long-lasting use.
