This is a very functional size trout net measuring 21 inches overall with an 8.5 inch handle and a 12 x 9.5 inch hoop. When most of us think of walnut we think of the uniform brown of furniture. When I look through boards I look for the streaks of lighter sapwood adding contrast to the color. This net features the outer layers of sap wood in the 8 inch handle framed with the darker uniform heart wood. Features a deep epoxy finish. Available as a custom order in with a slightly larger hoop for a ghost net bag. My nets are all signed and numbered. All nets have a custom shop made brass eye for attaching the net to your vest or belt.
