Well have been having fun again and turned this fisherman’s priest.

Made from odd scraps of wood I had laying about like Beech,Chestnut and Sapele the length is about 10”. I have owned a Robert Sorby Texturing and spiraling tool since about 2010 and never seemed to get a half decent spiral from it, well I did get one when I decided to have a go again. The two red rings are beech which I stained.

It’s a nice clean piece and you did a fine job on it.

Love it! Every fisherman should have one. Very nicely done.

P.S. Although I “catch-n-release” the small ones, I’m into catch and keep the big ones since my friends depend on me to supply them with fresh trout during the summer.

Fantastic! I didn’t know what it was either. I just call it a club. ha

That is waaaaay too nice to bash a stinky fish with. If you gotta do it, might as well do it with sytle!

Nice bit of turning Derek…. I never heard of the term “Fishman’s Priest’’ before.
It’d be a crying shame to use such a beautiful piece of woodwork on a fish….

Nice job. I found this definition on Wikipedia.

A priest (poacher’s, game warden’s or angler’s “priest”), is a tool for killing game or fish.
The name “priest” comes from the notion of administering the “last rites” to the fish or game. Anglers often use priests to quickly kill fish.

Cool! That’s really a fancy tool on dispatching a fish.
