A net for keeping fish alive until they are returned to the water.
- ‘Although I'm occasionally selfish enough to want a picture of a nice mixed bag of fish at the end of the day, I never put grayling into a keepnet.’
- ‘Changes affecting the ever-popular Laybourne Lakes include banning keepnets, other than in match conditions.’
- ‘I have also witnessed an angler with a double figure barbel in his keepnet which was being transported along the bank so his son could take a picture.’

- ‘While passing over Clifton bridge earlier this week I was amazed to see an angler fishing downstream of the bridge on the York bank complete with keepnet.’
