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

Medium Landing Net in Cherry and mixed woods


– Sold Out

 This net features study in color and grain.   I tried to combined woods that have a red tone for their color but contrasting grain. The 8 inch handle is of curly cherry.  The hoop combines sycamore selected for a honey tone and grain.  It has accent strips of mahogany. 

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 elongated hoop is about 14 x 8 inches.

The brass eye is made in my shop using solid brass rod, first milled into a rough shape, then ground to final shape and polished by hand.  A lot of work, but I haven't found any hardware that had the same solid feel and elegance. The net 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.
