Grand Prairie, TX (July 9, 2020) A fishing or landing net is a crucial piece of equipment to land the precious fish we target. Hours of planning, time on the water and analyzing fish lead to success, and the crescendo of the event is landing your prize. The measure of success is often capturing the fish to remove hooks and gently release them to reproduce and do battle another day. Frabill has developed the Conservation Net family, protecting sportfish with catch-and-release in mind.

Frabill led the industry 10 years ago when they introduced an entire family of nets dedicated to safe fish handling and effective catch and release. Since that time the Conservation family of nets has been a top seller from coast to coast.
All conservation nets get a complete update with an improved PowR Lok™ yoke that is stronger and more dependable than ever. This patented yoke allows you to open the net from the stowed position every time without ever worrying about it being locked in place and the handle secure. When you have to act fast to land a trophy, no other net can be put into action faster and with more confidence.
There are many options in the Conservation Net family. However, all of them have a flat bottom to support fish evenly and avoid damage to fins or scales. The shape of the net, the type of mesh used and the size of the mesh are all considerations when looking at the Frabill Conservation net collection. The type and size of fish you target is a significant deciding factor for the net. The craft you will fish from dictates the handle length or options to land and gently lift fish to the surface successfully.
There are four net models in the Conservation PLD family with a slide Handle. All have a teardrop-shaped hoop and a handle that slides to 36 inches. Mesh ranges from ¾ to 1 inch, in four different hoop sizes. These are perfect for smaller boats and most normal fishing conditions
When you need some extra reach The Conservation PLD Telescopic Handle Nets with the updated Pow’R Lok™ yoke that is now stronger than ever to hold the handle in place when fully extended. The telescopic models have net sizes that range from 17 X 19 inches to 23 X 26 inches. Five models to choose from means there is a size for every fishing situation.
The Conservation PLD Ultralight Net has a sliding handle and sleek lightweight design. The landing hoop is fitted with tangle-free micromesh netting to treat your precious catch with care. It’s portable, lightweight and makes netting a fish by yourself fast and effective. The specialized hoop shape allows it to easily store inside the rod locker on most boats
The Conservation Net family offers two mesh types, including tangle-free micromesh (TFMM), and clear rubber (CLR). The family uses flat bottom nets to better protect the fish. Rubber grips are strategically placed on the handles for strong, sure holds.
Conservation is the future of fishing, and Frabill empowers anglers to practice safe catch-and-release while protecting fish. Plan for tomorrow, and get a Conservation Net before hitting the water.
The all NEW Frabill Conservation Series, because you care about your fish.
