I am an avid fly fisherman and hobby woodworker. I was inspired by Greg at Sierra Nets to make my own. His nets are absolutely stunning. This is my first attempt but I'm please with the results so far. I prefer a more satin finish so I plan to rub this out and apply a wax coating before putting on the net bag.
