I began woodworking in my 20’s by dumpster diving at a nearby door manufacturer for some of the most beautiful kiln-dried mahogany, maple, oak, and walnut I had ever seen. Being that I was always the artistic type, this wood soon turned into beautiful furniture. So began my love affair with my second favorite thing in this world to do.

I started fishing when I was very young, and something about it never let go of me. Now, at 38, I fish for everything, on any gear, anywhere I can possibly do it- From bluegill to blue marlin- From trolling for roosterfish to fly fishing for 8” native rainbows- From Alaska to Costa Rica. I still get giddy like that 7-year old school boy catching perch from the dock on Deer-Flat Reservoir in Idaho.

Now, I am working very hard to try an d make a living combining those two things I love the most. I make custom landing nets.

Welcome to Lumberjocks. The projects are an inspiration, the information is priceless and the people are supportive. The only problem is, the site can get addictive.

God Bless

Hi there,
Welcome to LumberJocks… I joined the site myself a few months ago and will give you fair warning, this site is VERY ADDICTIVE, VERY EDUCATIONAL, and VERY FUN…. so sit back, enjoy the ride and learn from the other LJ’s as they are a group of extremely talented people that are also very friendly…

Enjoy your time here on LJ and pass the word to any of your woodworking buddies about us…

Wisty
