One of the cool things about packing to move is finding forgotten things like this landing net I made many years ago…

Very nice, but looks like you’ve neglected your fishing ‘cause this net is far too pristine for having been “made many years ago. . .”. I have a weakness for finely crafted, laminated fishing nets.

That is one sweet looking net. How did you work the taper into the center lamination on the bow.

Thanks for the kind comments, I have definitely neglected fishing to a degree. I made the taper with a block plane and sandpaper.
