One of three shorter landing nets I’ve built recently. I’ll post some of my recent boat landing nets later. This one is about 28” long. It is is an ash and wenge frame with a birdseye maple handle. I used Waterlox marine sealer and Waterlox marine finish product for the finish, high gloss.

Its a great looking net. Where do you get your rubber bags? How about postings a photo of the jig you use?

Sorry for the delayed response. Was out of town and internet use. I get my rubber bags from Brodin. I will post a picture of my jig…just need to take a picture of it.

As a woodworker and fisherman I love it! Did you steam bend?

Thanks for the kind comments. I didn’t steam bend. I have a 2” piece of PVC pipe that is 10 feet long. I capped one end. I put hot water in it and soak the strips for 24 hours. About a half an hour prior to bending I switch the water out with fresh, hot water. I then pull it out and bend it around the jig.
