Trout Landing Net for Friend

This is a landing net I made for a good friend. It is one of about 20 or so. The net hoop is made of walnut and oak strips and the handle inset is made of lacewood. The netting is dyed black with commercial dye, sewn together on a serger machine and then laced onto the hoop with a dyed nylon cord. Labor intensive but will last a life time.
