Bait survival depends on a healthy slime coat on the fish you are transferring. This new design creates an environment where bait can be handled with the least damage possible to the transfer of bait fish, aquarium fish and hatchery fish. (Wet Net is trademarked and patent pending). The wet net comes in three sizes, the clear vinyl bottom holds water which allows the fish to stay lubricated and many cases remain calmer once you lift the net out of the water. Single fish transfer is not as necessary with this unique net design. The medium and large sizes come with a collapsible handle and retractable head for easier storage. The handle has a useful measuring device permanently inscribed. Despite having greater resistance In the tank because of the clear vinyl bottom we find that many fish voluntarily swim into the net because of the clear panel.
