Deposit and Final Pricing
A unique net for a unique person. This is a fully functional landing net for larger trout and smaller steelhead, as well for display. This net combines many of my most complex construction methods and materials. The handle is a solid piece of hard-wood, that is joined to stacked strips of end cut bamboo. The frame is a combination of highly figured Tiger striped maple and a the wood of your choice. After I have constructed the net and frame, I hand carve the handle into a complex sweeping curve. The hoop measures 11.5 inches by 15 inches with a 14.5 inch handle. The net is completed with a multi-layered epoxy finished. All nets are signed and numbered. All nets have a custom shop made brass eye for attaching the net to your vest or belt.
The net shown has is made of Texas ebony, I have a very limited supply. The price reflects a $200 surcharge for the net in the Texas ebony.
There is a $100 refundable deposit, with up to a 12 month wait time. I will email you for confirmation of details.
