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

Medium sized Landing Net: The Snake handle, Sycamore and Walnut


A lot of fishermen seem to stand at my booth and try to envision using the curved handled nets I produce.

When I started carving curved handles, I wondered how a compound curve would look and feel. I can tell you, I like it. The double curve seems to slide the net under the fish. Whether that is just in my head is another opinion.

The 11 inch black walnut handle seems to hug my back rather than sticking out. The 10.5 x 12 hoop, is about 36 inches in circumference, it is comfortable to carry and handles a nice fish. Unfortunately I hand carve each handle so there won't be a big supply of these nets.  My nets are all signed and numbered.  All nets have a custom, shop made brass eye for attaching the net to your vest or belt.

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.
