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

Medium Custom Fly Fishing Net with elongated hoop in Walnut and Ash


For 20 years GB carried the paper pattern of  an old broken landing net he had seen while fishing in the Adirondacks.  During a conversation, he told me the story of this broken trout net and his pattern. This style of net is the result of translating that paper pattern into wood.

The hoop is elongated measuring 15 x 8 inches. The handle may vary but  this particular net  has a split handle of ash and walnut  about 8.5 inches long. The hoop is walnut.  This net features a soft nylon catch and release bag.  It is finished with multiple coats of epoxy. All my nets are signed and numbered. 

If you are interested in a similar net with custom woods or features it is available as special order, with a 6-12 month wait time.  Please contact me if your are interested in  a custom order to confirm details. (

The net, as shown, is a available for immediate shipping. The pictures are of the net you will receive.
