rvrgzr - I notice you have one of those longer handled "tube" nets - How do you like it for landing fish with the Tenkara rod. Does the extra length make landing the trout any easier?

The net works very well. The rubber webbing doesn't remove the 'slime' from the fish and flies don't get hooked like they do in nets of other materials. And there are times when I wish the net handle was much longer, like a steelhead net, but that would be one difficult net to carry or hang off the back.
