Custom Fly Fishing Net
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.
Handle of Figured Walnut and Wenge. Strips of Mahogany and Wenge.
Finished but not finished
Finished with Tru Oil (still need to rub out finish after it cures for several days)
Sanding done and ready for finish
Detail after 12+ coats of tru oil. Will rub out finish to reduce gloss after it cures
