The AFN New Zealand Fish ID Maxi Ruler Mat makes the humble tape measure look very old. Why settle for numbers alone when you can measure you haul and garner a fist load of outstanding information about your fish with a quick glance. The Maxi Mat includes information such as species eating quality, their merits as a sports fish, season guides and information about dangerous and protected species.
