I have a couple light weight nylon one's I got from God only knows where. But for cat's I don't do a lot of walking so I made one from 1/4" cotton rope. About 8' bowline in one end and a nail with the head cut off on the other. Whipped on the nail then coated it with clear epoxy. I cut a slot under the jaw and push it up there also. I like that Idea of crimping on the nail with some break line! Gonna change mine to that!

I use a 6' nylon coated cable stringer. I have had it so many years now! And it is still in great shape I do not even remember where I bought it at.

I use a large eagle claw wire fish basket. It keeps fish alive very well. So much so that if you decide you don't want to keep the fish and turn them back, i have no doubts they are going to survive. For the ones to big to fit in the basket, I use a rope stringer.
