I know due to the harbors and such being so tall I will need a very long landing net for salmon. Where can I buy one? How long does it need to be to be sufficient enough to land a salmon?

That is a nice net, but how long is it when it is not extended? I am guessing about 6 - 6.5 feet. Never mind, I just did the math. :oops: 6 feet.

OK guys for those if you looking for this net. I picked up the series above this one at the Dick's in Niles but that was the last Ranger net. I went to Arlington Heights and they didn't have any. I finally went to Schamburg during lunch time and they have 4-5 of them left of this model shown in pics. So if you're looking for this net and live in the NW burbs go to Schaumburg.

I just used this landing net yesterday and it worked great. Top quality product especially for the money.
So what did you catch? You never post your reports. :?
I didn't catch squat. I only had 2 hits. One I lost because I didn't have my drag set on tight. My brother caught a salmon in the 12lb range. We only fished for 2 hours.
