I used 3 lamination on the hoop 2 of them being red oak, and the middle lamination is hard maple. The handle is made from zebra wood with side laminations of wenge. I soaked the laminations instead of steaming them.

Like it—have you used it yet? Nice job. How do you like the net—appears to be a plastic as distinguished from the traditional cloth? Seriously considering trying to make a fly fishing net. Thanks for sharing.

I have not used this one, but I have used similar ones I’ve made. In fact I made it for a friend to give to his son for his birthday. The net bag is actually a rubber net bag. It is much more friendly to the fish if you are a catch and release fisherman. Another good thing about the rubber bag is you don’t get your flies caught in it when you fish multiple flies.

I have been interested in trying one of these, where do you find the rubber net bags?
This would be my first attempt at laminates, but I am up for the challenge!
I appreciate your help!

I bought it off Brodin’s website http://brodin.com/Ghost_Bags.html

I wrote a blog on how to make a landing net. I hope this helps you.

Thanks for references on net and your blog. Looking forward to your next post. Fell in love with fly fishing back in the early 60s when family went camping outside Estes Park, CO, but didn’t take it up until 1986 when I taught myself.

I fly fish often and tie my own flies. I will have to put this on my project list.

I tie my own flies, and fish only my patterns. It’s neat to catch fish on your own ties, and land them with a net you built. I think I’m going to have to make my own flybox, and split bamboo rod now. If only my day job didn’t get in the way!
