Ready to upgrade my cheapie net to a Beckman!! Anyone out there with any recommendations on which model to purchase? Checked at Sportsman's Warehouse and it seems the only model they carry have an incredibly deep bag. Any help??? Thanks Liv2Fish

When you're dealing with the trophy 40# plus salmon or any sturgeon, you will want the deeper net. I have the Tyee (Inuit or Native American for sslmon?)model since I mostly leave dinosaurs alone. Lifetime warranty. Doc

"Tyee" means "chief" or "king"

Which ever you get, make sure it has at least a six foot handle on it. Nothing like hanging over the transom looking at the biggest fish of your life and wishing you had two more feet.
When your talking nets, size does matter! :shocked:

LIVE2FISH,

As A former Beckman owner you may want to try the Frabill Pro-Formance series salmon/steelhead net #9805. It is the same as the Beckman with stronger yoke for half the money. If you buy at Joe's part of the funds go to NSIA (Northwest Sportfishing Industry Association) a worthy cause.
