that is a nice looking net frame and super handle. I made a frame similar to yours a few years ago that was 18” long and 10” wide in the basket area and used it a few times before it broke when I was trying to land a large Rainbow trout with it in fast water. It broke just above the handle. Have fun with your excellent project and land lots of fish.

Very nice. Like the insert treatment, especially the Marine. Catch-n-Release frames I presume. Thanks for sharing.

Thanks. I will probably keep the Marine one for myself. I still need to work on the fly it is too deep. I drill it out once and filled the hole in a little more. I found you can trim the sides of the fly back more. You can’t see the hackle that is pointed toward you. I primarily fish catch and release waters. The streams and rivers here are pretty sterile, and when the anadromous fish run were extirpated they last a big source of nutrients. It takes several years for a trout to get any size and the waters won’t support large enough numbers for catch and keep.
