I wanted to try my hand at making a landing net. This one is laminated with birch and walnut. Wasn’t to hand to make. Tying the net was the hardest/longest part.

Nice job. For a net google measurenet. They zip on around the bow are much easier to install and I think a more functional net. I tied a few of those nets on and they are a real pain to do. Anglers workshop is one place that carries them.

They are fun to make, aren’t they? I had the same trouble locating net bags. I still haven’t found a good source for nylon net bags. I went with clear rubber (Brodin is the brand name). I finally found them for a decent price on E-bay. I also found it was best to start with the net bag and design the frame to fit whatever circumference you need for your net bag. It’s really difficult to find a bag that fits perfectly if you start with an odd sized net frame (unless you weave your own bags).

Nice net! I have the handle for one ready to fly, but have been waiting to make the frame until I had a bag in hand. How thick does everyone make the laminated strips for the frame? Thanks for the tips on locating net bags.
