Welcome to my website, for more than 20 years I have been building landing nets and sharing them with other fishermen. My custom fly fishing landing nets are made for the discerning sportsman to honor the beauty of the fish and the streams. Combining form and function, these landing nets provide a beautiful frame as you land your fish and a piece of art to decorate your home or office when you can't be out fishing. Each of these handcrafted wooden landing nets is signed and numbered as a unique fishing collectible that makes a distinctive gift for that hard to buy for person, collector, fly fisherman, boss, retiree, graduate, husband, father,or grandfather. A great Christmas gift for the fisherman, that special man or woman in your life.
Starting with American hardwoods each of these landing nets is handcrafted to its individual shape, contoured, detailed and sanded. They are coated with a deep epoxy finish to create a lustrous glow. These fly fishing landing nets may be customized to your personal taste, creating a collectible piece of outdoor art. I personally create each of these nets using a variety of hand and power tools. My finishing techniques were developed over several years of frustration and false starts, it is still the single most time consuming part of building these landing nets. Each landing net will have a minimum of 6 coats of epoxy to develop the finish with a deep glow and protection. The brass fittings are machined and polished by hand in my own workshop.
My fly fishing landing nets are priced individually, starting at $180. Take a look through my gallery of fly fishing landing nets and available landing nets to see nets that I have made. Also look at the custom features pages to see some of the many possibilities for a landing net made to your specifications.
If you are interested in how I build these landing nets checkout my DVD. In it I review building a landing net starting with creating a design, selecting materials, making the necessary forms and finally constructing the landing net frame. I discuss my finishing techniques and review selecting and attaching the net bag. I show a variety of tricks and tips to smooth the process.
If you have any questions please contact me and we can discuss the possibilities for your net.
Tight lines, Sam
