Back in the shop or swinging for steel.
These designs add $200-300 to the price of a net.
I liked the cravings and brass scroll-work on the flintlock rifles of past. I was asked to design a net as a gift to a grandfather, celebrating his grandchildren and designed an inlay of a trout which included the birth stones of his grandchildren set into a net handle.
Time past and I saw a board with an unusual area of color and grain. I was inspired to transform that area into the stylized suggestion of a trout. I offer my interpretation of a brown, rainbow and brook trout.
Simpler ideas such as the addition of measurement marks in brass and bone can enhance the handle with less stress on the budget. (about $25-50 each)
After you order a custom net, I will want to talk directly to you to confirm all the details before starting your net.
