Oh my aching back, I am recovering from a visit to the doctor, expect things to be a little slow. Recovery expected in time for steelhead!
This feature adds $100-300 to the price of a net depending on size of the segment and complexity.
Many of my designs start out as a question. A rod building friend asked whether I had ever seen a stacked bamboo reel seat. I hadn't but I went with the idea and came up with a landing net handle that honors the use of bamboo in fly fishing. I can use stacked bamboo as a limited design element or as a full handle. Each layer of bamboo is fitted and glued individually then coated with multiple coats of epoxy to stabilize and protect.
After you order a custom net, I will want to talk directly to you to confirm all the details before starting your net.
