Back home in the shop and on the river. Yes, there was one that got away. But what a story.

Large Landing Net with figured Walnut and Elk Antler


– Sold Out

This net is of highly figured American walnut and Elk antler. The net measures about, 30 inches overall, the handle is 15 inches. The slightly larger hoop measures 15 x 11 inches.   It is coated with my unique epoxy finish.  All my nets are signed and numbered. 

I was first inspired to make this design while fishing a high mountain valley with a meadow stream when I found a small elk antler.  It was somebody's reject, with saw marks and broken tips. To me, I saw the makings of memories. The day had been spectacular with flashes of sun and thunder. I had the valley to myself for one special day of risk and reward.
