Sam is back from teaching, working in the shop and playing on the river.
Mother Nature gave me this design. I found a curved intrusion in a beautifully grained piece of wood. I was intrigued and cut out a handle following its shape. The finished landing net reminded me of a willow bent by the wind next to a favorite trout stream. I continue to look at boards to find grain that follows the curved lines of this handle. The net has a deep epoxy finish to enhance and protect.
This net has a handle of cherry with a cherry and walnut hoop. There is a walnut handle cap. The handle is about 9 inches with a 13 x 10 inch hoop. It is about 22 inches overall.
This fly fishing net style is also available in a variety of woods, hoop shapes and sizes. All nets feature a soft nylon catch and release bag or may be fitted with a ghost bag, as a custom option. All my nets are signed and numbered.
