Nets are elementary tools for landing fish. In the sport of fly fishing nets are a secondary method for landing fish. The rod/reel/line are the primary tools. In this sport many fish are landed without nets. However, in the sport of trout fishing, nets are often helpful, practical tools for landing fish that are hooked with tiny flies and played on light leaders. Often the anglers is in a position that the fish may not be beached or grabbed. The preferred method is to lead the fish over the net and then the net is lifted and the fish sinks into the bag which is supported by a bow. The more the fish struggles the deeper it sinks into the net. Nets are essential for landing fish when the angler is in a boat or float tube.
