Rulers & Scales

Everyone who has ever gone fishing has a story about the one that got away, but when you do haul in the truly big catch of the day you'll want to be able to truly quantify those bragging rights with a scale and ruler. There are options with both digital and analog spring scales that measure the weight of a catch, while rulers can let you judge the size of a fish in length.

Tools like this are small and lightweight enough to bring along in the boat or in your gear pack and these can come in handy to determine if your catch falls within the regulation size or if you need to throw them back. The scales can be used when you're cleaning and preparing your fish as well so you can portion out food for the fish dinner to celebrate a good catch or package for a later meal.
