JACKSON, WIS. – APRIL 2, 2008 – To weekend warriors and tournament anglers alike, the release is as essential as the catch. Frabill agrees. The new Bill Dance XPS® Landing Nets are strong and functional, and at the same time designed with a fish’s welfare in mind. The key to the velvet glove treatment is Frabill’s Catch & Release Micro-Mesh netting, which uses small, knotless holes. The intricate meshing is free of sharp edges that can remove fish scales and protective slime, while at the same keeping hooks from getting tangled. The net’s well-conceived flat bottom supports the entire length and weight of a fish, preventing it from flipping and flopping. Happier fish are healthier fish, says Frabill.
Even a good net is a hindrance, however, if a fish spooks and flares from the sight of it. The Bill Dance XPS Series feature non-glare, matte finish net hoops. The fish won’t even see you coming. The technologically advanced nets also incorporate Frabill’s patented Pow’R Lok™ Yoke and Twist-Lock telescoping handles, allowing for easy and sure handle- length adjustments for scooping at the surface or down deep. Just slide, lock and land. The Bill Dance XPS Landing Net is available in four-distinct versions: One walleye/multispecies model with a large 23- by 26-inch hoop and 48- to 96-inch telescoping handle; crappie and bluegill model with extra long 50- to 100-inch telescoping handle and 17- to 19-inch hoop; bass model with 20- by 23-inch hoop and 24- to 28-inch telescoping handle; and a bass-oriented net of the same dimensions with clear rubber Catch & Release Micro-Mesh netting. Bill Dance XPS Landing Nets are sold exclusively through Bass Pro Shops, both in-store and online (www.bassproshops.com). Trusted by anglers since 1938, Frabill, Inc.
