Gallery of Custom Landing Net Features

Each of my nets may be customized with a variety of decorative elements.

I enjoy working with individuals to create unique elements to create a personalize a special net.

There are many options. Below are a few possibilities.

  • Inlays of brass, antler and feathers.


                              Brass and walnut measurement inlays

  • Carvings of trout or willow leaves   


  • Scrimshaw inlay 


  • Insets (such as medallions, coins, cufflinks, special medals, elk ivory, arrowheads, carvings).


  • Brass braid around hoop rim or handle.      



                                                                                                                                                           Elk antler with brass braid.

  • Deer antler handle end (I can use your antler if it is the right size.)

  • A personal inscription (limited to approximately 50 characters)


  • Multi-wood  and custom contoured handles

  •    Bamboo and burl wood                                                                                                                                                                                                            



A deer, caribou, or elk antler integrated into the handle providing a distinctive original design.
