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

Medium Landing Net in Leopard wood and lace

$425.00

– Sold Out

This net features leopard wood and sycamore. The leopard wood is also called snake wood and the quarter-sawn sycamore is sometimes referred to as American lacewood. I tried to combined the pattern of the woods with their contrasting colors for this net. The 9.5 inch handle combines the two woods with an inset of rose wood.  The handle is capped with an end piece of caribou antler. The hoop is sycamore and leopard wood. The net is about 24 inches long.

A little story about the hoop, 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 the pattern. This fly fishing net is the result of translating that paper pattern into wood. The hoop is elongated was about 14 x 7.5 inches.  This net features a soft nylon catch and release bag.  It is finished with multiple coats of epoxy. All nets are signed and numbered.
