Second trial of fly fishing goods.
Smaller box fit for my wading vest.
Bending shape of landing net is easy on my back to carry.
I can not wait fishing season.
Wooops,, I need to get the net itself…

The only problem is that I would be afraid to get them wet! :)

Those really are great pieces. Thanks for sharing.

Very nice! One thing I love about this is that the fly box will most certainly float if dropped in the water – believe it or not, I had one sink like a stone a few years back – honest!

Great job!

Very pretty. I think I would be reluctant to let it get wet myself. Do you also make your own flyrods?

At first I thought it was a mirror & compact! What grand fishing items. I too would worry about getting them wet, but they sure would make my fishing day a bit nicer!

Very nice! I thought that no net was your version of catch and release.

I like your work. I’m also a fly fisherman.
Did you steam bend the rim of the landing net?

I put the sliced wood into the bath tub
with hot water filled for over night.
Then, just before setting to the template, I soaked into
boiled water. Some of the species are OK with this method.
The biggest issue of this method is that
I have to wake up early enough before my wife finds some serpentines in the bath tub.
I believe that steam bend shall work better.
P.S. my favorite is small creek in deep mountain.
