Back in the shop, spring is just around the corner.
This Tenkara style net has a 13 inch handle of curly Maple and a 10 x 9 inch circular hoop of curly Maple. (about 32 inch circumference). There is a small accent segment of cherry in the handle and an accent strip of walnut in the hoop.
The amount of force required to make a circular hoop was surprising, these continue to be a challenge and are on the edge of feasibility. That is why I keep making them. (Nuts-o) This style can be custom ordered in a variety of woods. The net has a deep epoxy finish. All of my fly fishing nets are signed and numbered.
The net has a bucket style net bag which cradles the fish in the bottom rather than bending their spine.
