While it’s usually no problem to beach or hand-land smaller salmon, getting the big fellows safely out of the water can often be a real challenge. That’s why having an appropriately sized landing net with you is essential when fishing for salmon.
Because steelhead are so strong and wild, landing them can sometimes be a real challenge. That’s why you should always have a net with you when fishing for steelies. It’s the best way to ensure you land your prized catch. And no one wants to lose a trophy fish.
A good net will help you land every walleye you hook smoothly and safely, and there’s never the risk of losing a fish right in front of your feet, no matter the size. It’s really one of the most important pieces of fishing gear I can think of!
