  1. RR Nets - Custom Wood Fishing Net Duo for Father/Brother Gift

    I apologize in advance for the amount of pictures here! I was asked a few months ago to build a set of semi-matching nets as a gift for a brother and father. After a few back and forth messages, we decided on the hoop shape, handle material and length. I was excited for these nets in...
  2. RR Nets - Lightning Round Walnut Landing Net

    Earlier this year, a friend showed me a recently downed maple tree (which was heavily spalted) a few miles from where I grew up that looked perfect for net handles and other small projects. We contacted the property owner and she ended up showing us another piece of wood that had been laying in...
  3. Walnut landing net

    I learned the basic methods from Youtube (gotta love Youtube). It is a pretty straight forward process, although the glue-up is tricky, walnut that has been soaked in water is bendable enough, but I had to adjust some curves to be more broad. The curve at the top of the handle requires some...

  6. Fishing nets

    This is another pair of Christmas presents made last year. It was my first time with bent lamination and also with a scroll saw. I was a little nervous starting out on this one since I thought the glue up may be a nightmare. It was messy for sure, but not that bad really. I was also debating...

  14. Designing Woodworking Projects
    Hey LJ's…I am trying to come up with a food-related item for a local Farmer's Market and I thought about doing a cheese board in the shape of Texas made out of thick Pecan, the state tree in the long grain?

Thankfully, I've been fly fishing for close to 25 years and gradually acquired some really great gear that will last a lifetime. To keep costs under control, I like to tie...
