Best Fishing net?

As many of ya'll have noticed, I'm new to fishing flats boats.  Definitely a learning curve, but LOVING IT so far!

Being this close to the water, I'm in need of a new fishing net.  Can ya'll recommend your favorite fishing nets for specks, other smaller species?  
Want something smaller and with a shorter handle (or collapsible) that can fit into one of the storage compartments.

Thanks.

I would only buy one with a rubber net. The smaller mesh nets will always grab your hook. I would only buy one with a fixed hoop. I have seen the fancy fold up nets fold up on the front when trying to dip into the water to get under a fish. The ones with the one piece Pole that simply slides in over the net portion to stow seems to fit in most front boxes. I would really suggest going to the store and putting your hands on the nets before you buy. The link here will show you solid hoop and slide in Handel as I am trying to describe.

Check out the FishPond boat nets.  They are light, have rubber basket and float.  You'll pay for it, but then you paid for your flat's boat.

Well, I broke down and bought a Nomad Fishpond net.  Got the "boat" net.  Arrived today and it's an awesome looking net that I hope will serve me well for many years.
My only complaint is that's it's Made in China, which seems very counter to Fishponds website/advertising.  😒
