There are conversations that introduce you to a whole different world of ideas and view points. A call about building a net introduced me to the Japanese style of Tenkara fishing. I have admired Japanese design and their respect for hand craft. I hope this design reflects that aesthetic.
This net is of firgured maple with a 9 x 9 inch hoop. (32 inch circumference hoop) and longer handle. The handle which are slightly longer than the typical Western trout net, is about 12-14 inch in length. This landing net is good for protecting the tip of a bamboo rod as well for Tenkara style fishing.
This fly fishing net style is also available in a variety of woods, hoop shapes and sizes. These nets feature a soft nylon catch and release bag. I find that ghost style net bags do not work well in smaller net frames. All nets are signed and numbered.
Available as special order there is a $100 refundable deposit, with a 4-6 month wait time. I will email you for confirmation of details.
