    Completed another net and have another to pop out of mold today. Figured I'd share with ya'll!

    Maple and walnut laminations and a curly maple handle. Handle was once a skid and had some nail holes so they got opened up and filled with turquoise.

    Thanks for looking!!

    Nice save on that curly skid wood. I wouldn't know where to begin tying a net to a hoop. Was this netting entirely tied by hand?

    Although I've wanted to I dont have the patience to tie the netting. They are premade i just do all the lashing which can be quite a chore. This one is lashed different than last one i made and took about an hour. One before that was closer to 2 hours. This went to a good buddy who I know will be very hard on it and it will need a new net by next year more than likely so I went the easier route.

    Really something you can find that kind of wood in a "skid". What size is that net? Do you use it for great lakes fish or inland streams? Beautiful workmanship.

    These are primarily trout nets for our inland streams. They will hold smallmouth and so forth also outta our rivers.

    The hoop is 16x11 and netting is 20 inches deep. Handles I've been varying lengths for people but this one is 20 inches. Good size for wading or could be used out of a driftboat or canoe nicely.
