#1: American Tenkara Style, a smaller net for elegant fishing.

There are conversations that introduce you to a whole different world of ideas and view point.  A call about building a net introduced me to the Japanese style of Tenkara fishing. I have admired Japanese design and their respect for hand craft.  I hope this design reflects that aesthetic.

The common element for this style of nets is the 9 x 9 inch hoop. (32 inch circumference hoop) and longer handle.   The handles which are slightly longer than the typical Western trout net, is about 12-14 inch in length. This landing net is good for protecting the tip of a bamboo rod as well for Tenkara style fishing.

This fly fishing net style is available in a variety of woods, hoop shapes and sizes. These nets feature a soft nylon catch and release bag.  I find that ghost style net bags do not work well in smaller net frames. All nets are signed and numbered. 

Shown in maple. Starting at $220
