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!
I have demonstrated landing net building and construction methods at a variety of fly shows and programs over the the years. I have also offer weekend classes which are designed for a student to complete a landing net frame over 2 days. The classes cover design, wood selection, wood bending, gluing and machining as well as finishing. Small group classes are at my home shop in Grand Rapids, Michigan, and are limited to 4 students. I also provide individual instruction at $600/day. (My minimum private class is 2 days as that is the minimum time needed to build a net frame.) (For private classes the timing and information covered are flexible.) Please contact me to schedule your date.
I will teaching a class for 4 students this October 21, 2023. The Saturday and Sunday class will cover the basic construction methods. For students wanting addition teaching, the class will continue on Monday and Tuesday covering finishing as well as decorative details. The fee is $250 per student/day. There is a $50 material fee.
Start time daily: 8:30 AM, 4:00 clean up and 5:00 departure. Lunch is provided.
