Very nice landing net indeed. I noticed from the pictures that it’s about 7” across. So it’s a Prototype, right?
The 12 Pound Bass (okay 10 Pound) and 4 Foot Muskie (okay 3.5 Foot) I catch MOST of the time wouldn’t fit in there!! Just Kidding Mr. Vagabond! ;-}
WOW!! What a Great Site This Is! Here I am, a New Member from CANADA, talking to Fellow Woodworker in JAPAN, about his Great Looking WOODEN Landing Net!
Now That’s what I call ”A Good Thing!”

Nice project, so what kind of fish are you landing with it?

Very nice!. I have made a couple nets out of ash and walnut. They are fun but challenging to make.

Rick, it is so nice to hear from Canada where winter Olympic is about to begin.Yeh,, the PROTOTYPE landing net is even bulky for my fishing trip.Next one will be a bit smaller than this one.Since my nation is less than 10% of your nation, the net is so small.Best wishes for the Winter Olympic.

Great job! do you mind if I ask how you cut the recess for the net string? I’ve made several of these myself and i cut the recess by hand, but it always gives me problems. I’m guessing there has to be a better way than what I’m doing.

MikeI made a simple jig with used jig saw blade.Cut out the blade about 1/2” long （even used blade has enough portion)Grind out teeth leaving 2,3teeth in the middlecut a slit to the center of a small block of wood(1” cubic)insert the blade into the slit of the block.glue small piece of wood to the block as a guide to follow the flame outer rim.now you can easily make recess with the width of blade and the depth of bladeextrusion from the block.

Very nice work, love it. I would be interested in knowing how your bending your frames and etc. I have done a few of these but nothing like yours. Would love to see and know how your doing the bending.
