Another Bentwood net. The first one came out good enough that I wanted one for myself. The lighter wood is ash and the darker wood is Mahogany. This net is a few inches smaller than the first one and is more along the lines of a standard fly fishing trout net.

Looks great!! This is something I had never thought of trying to make. Though once I did I would have people lined up at my door wanting more made – especially if I was able to make one that looked this good!

Great net, I have made three, but have not found decent netting, where are you getting that from.

These bent laminations sure are pretty. Some day I’ll have to give it a try. Very nicely done.

Looks really great, I could have put it to good use out on the Madison last summer.
Nice job.
