Back in the shop, thanks to all that ordered while I was fishing, sorry about the delay in your orders.
For 20 years GB carried the paper pattern of an old broken landing net he had seen while fishing in the Adirondacks. During a conversation, he told me the story of this broken trout net and his pattern. This style of net is the result of translating that paper pattern into wood.
The hoop is elongated measuring 15 x 8 inches. The handle may vary but this particular net has a split handle of ash and walnut about 8.5 inches long. The hoop is walnut.
This fly fishing net is also available in a variety of woods, handle shapes and hoop sizes. All nets feature a soft nylon catch and release bag but may be fitted with a ghost bag, as a custom option with a slightly larger hoop size. Finished with multiple coats of epoxy. All nets are signed and numbered. There is a $100 refundable deposit for a custom net, with up to a 12 month wait time. I will email you for confirmation of details.
