Pal of mine is an avid fly fisher so for his birthday, created this priest out of black walnut with detailing on the handle. Finished with shellac and wood wax. Mostly done with a skew.

Very nice! This is probably the only fly fishing accoutrement I don’t have and wished I did on several occasions. What are the dimensions? Thanks for the post.

Nice turning, I’ll have to admit, didn’t know what the heck a fishing priest was,googled it, and was shocked to see that some of these sell for as much as $165.00. Maybe I should start turning these, instead of segmented bowls.

Beautiful work on the turning with a skew. I’ve got to ask though, what’s it for – hitting the fish over the head? Sorry, I’m not a fisherman.

Apparently its for administrating the last rites to a fish. (A.k.a hitting it on the head.) I’ve always used the back end of my knife.

Hi Oldtool, yes as Comboprof says it’s the coup de gras for a caught fish. I usually catch and release but rainbow trout are sometimes too delicious to put back!Thanks for your comments :)

Lol, my fishing partner won’t eat rainbow, says he can’t get past the smell. No he’ll only keep pan size male brook trout. At most 2 and usually only if badly hooked.
