Medium sized Custom Fly Fishing Net : Birdseye Maple and Texas Ebony with Deer Antler Burl

This is one of my favorite designs.

Why? First it has a very functional hoop size for use and the short handle makes it easy to carry. Add to that the beauty of the woods that seem to "pop" under the epoxy finish.  Doesn't get much better.  

The woods in this landing net are from about as far north and south as you can go in the United States. The Texas ebony is an urban harvest wood that was wrangled from the junk heaps and burn piles in south Texas. I was lucky to find a recycler and stocked up a  small supply. (The needed quantity for a life time supply keeps getting smaller).  

From the Upper Peninsula of Michigan comes the birds eye maple. I am always looking for that occasional board that has the dense eyes and creamy color. These woods combine delightfully in this net with a deer antler cap.

I find the slightly rounder hoop about 10 x 12 inches, 36 inch circumference, with a 9 inch handle gives a very balanced look. This is a style that I always try to keep in stock.

Each net is signed and numbered.  All nets have a custom shop made brass eye for attaching the net to your vest or belt.

Priced $400: there is a $100 deposit when you place your order. There is an estimated 4 month delay.
