A compact measuring device ideally suited to measuring small species. It is retractable, coming in four sections that slide into a small, compact unit. It is half circular in shape so that it holds smaller species securely when measuring, protecting the fish and providing a more accurate length reading. There is a loop at the top of the measure that allows it to be connected to a lanyard for safe storage. It is perfect for keeping in a small waist bag or in a pocket when on a session. It is made from durable plastic and is easy to clean. A useful, compact measure for the species hunting angler who likes to accurately record their catch.
