I as started making nets, I found pleasure in using the equipment I had made. Along the way I found that fishing wasn't a game of numbers but a game of memories. This was the first style of hoop and handle I made. I thinks it looked back to classic English trout streams, catching some of that same feeling. This landing net's "traditional" hoop shape is modified from a classic Valentine heart. I think of as my Classic handle and hoop. I still like it.
The net as pictured is of American chestnut, green ash and American black walnut. All of these trees grew in the hardwood forests of the East. Both have been or are being devastated by invasive species. An American Tragedy. This net has a 10 inch handle, 13 x 9 inch hoop. Similar custom nets priced starting $220 varying with wood and options added.
