Sam is back from teaching, working in the shop and playing on the river.
Mother Nature gave me this design. There were multiple defects in a beautifully grained and colored piece of wood. I was intrigued and cut out a handle filling the defects with deep red epoxy. The handle has an end cap of walnut. (You could say the bugs in the system produced this design.)
This Medium sized landing net has a the curved wind-in the-willows handle. The curved oak handle is about 8 inches long. The Dickerson style hoop has contrasting layers of quarter-sawn white oak and walnut. The hoop measures 9 by 13 inches.
This fly fishing net style is available in a variety of woods, hoop shapes and sizes. All nets feature a soft nylon catch and release bag or may be fitted with a ghost bag, as a custom option. All nets are signed and numbered.
