#13: Landing Net Handle with Hidden Images in the Wood

You are walking down the river and there in the bottom of a pool you see a trout, it rolls and drifts. How did that fish just disappear? As I have grown older I enjoy looking for and fishing to working fish. If I am successful I like to pause for a moment to really try and see the individuality of a fish before I release it.

Now I look for wood and figure where I can see an image in that piece of lumber.  I have added just enough detail so you can see it too.  The trout for each of these nets is drawn and inlayed by hand. No lasers or computers were harmed in the production of these nets.

The handle is birds eye maple selected so the tones in the wood enhance the inlay. There is a limited acent of walnut for contrast.   Each fish is individually drawn, then incised and inlayed.  I started with a brown trout and have added a brook trout and rainbow trout to the mix.

 A design I enjoy making and sharing. Please send me an email about your special order.  Typically priced $375-400.
