Has a look and feel of a high end net

I love the wood look of this net. It has a high end look and feel about it. It’s put together really well. I like the rubber netting. It’s different. It has a little stretch to it which I can see is why it can be better for fishing. I haven’t had a chance to use this yet because it’s winter time and to cold for me to fish. I’m not the one to go out ice fishing that’s for sure. Either way I love this net and the price it great for something like this. It is a good size and will work great for bass bluegill which is what I mainly fish. I would definitely recommend getting this net. So far it’s the best one that I’ve come across.

Very nice fishing net to go easy on your catch and release fish

I like to fly fish. In the past I would buy a real expensive wooden fishing net then leave it on the shore and the cycle would begin again. Having a rubber net is important as most of my fishing is catch and release so I don't want to hurt the fish with a scratchy net. The price of this net was almost too good to be true given my past experience purchasing nets like these so I had to get it to see if it would work for my needs. I was pleasantly surprised to see that this is a very sturdy framed and nice looking net. The netting itself is just as I had before and will be good for the fish. Unless you are looking for a fishing net with exotic wood that you can show off at the lodge, this one for the money is a perfect substitute.

High Quality

Better quality than expected! recommend!

Well-Made, Sleek Net

I've been wanting one of these rubber-net nets for awhile, as it doesn't scratch up the fish when you net it. This rubber is soft, and when wet, is probably as soft on the fish as possible. Plus, once in the water, is almost invisible. The craftsmanship on the wood frame is beautiful, and could easily pass for one of the more expensive nets. I see no reason not to give this new five stars.

Handy

This is light and easy to use in and out of the water to scoop up all types of creatures. I use it to catch or wrangle frightened rescue kittens as it is soft and flexible and won't harm them even if they panic.

Good

it cleans very light the net with a good depth and seems to be very resistant , wood with a perfect finish

Great net

This net is advertised as "heirloom quality," and I'd have to agree with that. There is a heavy layer of lacquer on the wood. It's a little much, but hopefully, that will make the wood last longer. It's not wood that's been oiled like you might see with an antique wood fishing net, but it still looks nice. The rubber net works well. We went and tested it. The netting isn't super deep, so a fish could flop out of it, but it also makes it easy not to get everything all tangled with a deeper net. The rubber netting is easy to clean and feels very sturdy. All in all, a great net.

Great landing net!!

Can't say enough nice things about this net.
It is lightweight, very sturdy and durable, and represents an excellent value for the money.
The plastic coated net doesn't get tangled up in your line and hooks don't get snagged in it.
The bungee cord attached to the handle hooks to your vest and helps keep it out of your way when you're not using it.
Construction is super high quality. It doesn't seem cheaply made at all.
For years I've been using a traditional styled landing net with uncoated strings.
I've officially abandoned that net in favor of this one.
Can't say enough good things about it.
Just order it.
If you're looking for a product like this, then look no further.
Very highly recommended.

Great fishing net

Great landing net. The wood frame is comfortable and strong, while being easy to maintain a grip on even if your hands are dirty. The net itself isn't made from line but rather its a clear, molded plastic. Either way it works well and its the perfect size for the catfish at the lake. Hasn't let me down yet.

Beautiful and Well Made

This landing net is beautiful and well made. It feels comfortable in my hand. The wood handle and net frame are smooth and nicely finished. This is my first wood-handled net, and I expect it will need to be recoated with a clear acrylic at some point in the future.

The hoop dimensions and the 7 inch handle make this net good for shore or stream wading, or fishing from a small boat, canoe or kayak. It's big enough for any of the trout or bass I've caught, and for pink salmon. If you're fishing for anything over 3-4 lbs, This model may not be big enough.

It has a clear rubber net that is good for the fish and the fisherman. The rubber net is the latest net material designed to be gentler on fish than the old knotted nylon or woven polyester nets. A polyester net helped protect the fish's scales, the rubber net helps preserve the fish's slime layer as well.

A big plus is the more open mesh of this net, which makes removing the lure or hook from the net easier. It's annoying to spend much time unhooking your lure from the net when the fish are biting. The relatively shallow depth and flat bottom of this net helps getting a photo of the fish in the net, and can help the fish to escape the net as well. Really not a bad trade-off, since many fisheries are becoming much more selective, and many fish have to be returned to the water. I don't get to keep and eat many of the fish I catch, and I'm willing to chance losing a fish to use a net that will help the fish survive.

Perfect Hatch stands behind what they sell

The net is your standard issue ghost net with good size holes (not too large as with some of these); a very solid net for the money. Had a problem with the order and Perfect Hatch rectified it quickly and professionally, so I wholeheartedly recommend buying from them. I know I will again.

Love this reel!

I originally bought this to use on my 5/6wt rod so that I could fit some extra line on the spool. Shipping was quick and I had my first largemouth on the fly within 1 hour of unboxing. The drag was really smooth and you can tell the reel is built to last. It’s also surprisingly light for a 7/8wt. I’ll be buying the 3/4wt as well for my next trout trip up north.

High quality Low price

I really wanted a quality fly reel that wouldn’t break the bank. This reel checked all the boxes! Very smooth retrieve. I loved the drag on it. This was my first step up from a beginner’s level fly reel, and you can definitely tell the difference. Fantastic fly reel!

Perfect Hatch Flyreel

Great looking reel at an affordable price point. Silky smooth drag and top quality machining. No need to buy those big name reels at the big name prices. Soo ok end the money you save on this reel on a great rod.

Perfect reel

I had a custom rod made and needed a quality reel. Look no further this is the one. The reel is light weight, well made, durable, and looks killer. The drag system is legit also. Definitely do yourselves a favor and get this reel you can thank me later.

5 stars

If you are left handed you will love this fly reel. It is really well made and the drag is perfect. If you are right handed and you don't mind reeling with your left hand or reeling backwards, it may also work for you! But for me it is a no go! But it still deserves 5 stars.

WOW!

Nice reel. Smooth as silk. Putting the fly line was no problem. Fits on my custom made Sage Rod perfectly. Easy to get the line out and reel it back in. Never knew reels could be this good. Great value for the money.

Big Dog!

I have not had a chance to load this reel or officially test it out on some big fishies here yet, but on inspection, this seems like a nice reel and I'm looking forward to putting together a heavy-duty rig to try my luck with some of the salmon and steelhead people go for in this area... unfortunately, the season is like a year away.. so my testing will be just casting until then...

Great reel

Fantastic little reel. The reel has a good feel to it and looks good to boot.

You are most certainly getting a high-quality reel for the money.

I went ahead and bought the 5/6wt, and it works well for what I need it to do. I like the attention to detail given to everything, even the packaging—a very easy and seamless retrieval. I like the drag of it. You are most certainly getting a high-quality reel for the money. The body seems to be machined from aluminum and steel, and the red coloring on the black background makes it stand out. Adjusting the drag tension may be done quickly using the knob. It's not that hefty at all.

Nice!

I don't have much fly fishing experience, but to me this seems like a good beginner's reel. It's pretty smooth reeling. The drag tension knob is easy to adjust. It's not very heavy. I'm pretty satisfied with this reel. Great price too.

Great little fly reel

It's going to be great for my next trip to Montana. The size I bought should be perfect for trout.

Great reel!

Really great reel for the money. Feels about as nice as my Sage Spectrum C. Has a nice drag system with plenty of bang for your buck. The line spools out with a nice smooth feel. I now have a reel for bass and a reel for trout.

Smooth Sailing

I like the smooth release of the line. The reel has such a smooth release that I had to make sure I still had the rod with me. The tensioner is easily adjusted and makes reeling in the big one easier. You won’t go wrong with this purchase.
