Hi,  I know what your talking about and they are hard to find.  I just found them on ALLWATERSFISHING.COM and they sell for $19.99 for the 36" round/diameter model.

They are out there. I know exactly what you need. I see people with them on the piers and normally these guys that have these nets help everyone bring their fish out of the water. I have been looking for a year. I want to get one for my husband this father's day. Academy used to carry them but of course I did not want one then.

Good luck.

Hi Jim,

Here is a link to a dealer with the type of net you requested I have been using one for a couple of years already and it's great from a pier. Easy to carry folded up. The smaller one fits into a 5 gallon bucket. It is great for saving wear and tear on undersize fish that marginally miss size limits. Better than gaffing.

Hope this helps you.

Good luck fishing.

The popnet company makes exactly what you seek. They work great. Only "improvement" might be addinf some 30z sinkers to the rim.

Hi Jim,

You can find a bridge/pier landing net at a Dicks sporting goods for about $16.00.  They also make an excellent crab basket.

Landing fish from bridges, piers, jetties, offshore boats, no problem.  There is a product ready to appear on the market that will land a fish 100% of the time, with no netting.  Plus, it fits right into your tackle sack.  The person catching the fish can also use this product at the same time, to land the fish.  It does not require an extra person, as does any drop net.
