    Here's the first go around with my landing net project. I laminated the hoop from thin strips cut on my Shopsmith. I let them sit clamped on the form for two days, then unclamped, glued up and re-clamped. I need to get some longer stock so I can have the ash strips run the full length of the handle, then shape the handle. This handle is quarter sawn sycamore - I am going to wrap it with some rattan. Next step is to route a groove along the outside of the hoop, drill equidistant holes around the hoop and stitch in the net. The small piece of sycamore that you see glued to the top of the net hoop will have a small magnet inlaid in it so that the net can be hung from the back of an anglers vest. Good fishing!

    Very nice. I'm sure my German ancestors would have admired it too.

    With all good wishes,

    Here's my daughter with landing net #2, oak and sycamore, at a local pond - hey it works! I'm going to make a larger net form next. I have also been turning some large salt water plugs from cedar and smaller plugs from locust. Cheers - Alec

    Matching cap and life vest -- cool. Of course, the truly color-coordinated angler would have a red net as well.

    With all good wishes,

    Here's the latest net - this one is quarter-sawn sycamore handle and hoop, with a mahogany "swoop" laminated in. I'm waiting for the net bags I ordered to arrive, then I'll sew one on and it'll be done and ready to go to work!! Cheers, Alec

    Great looking net frame Alec. Almost a shame to use it. :)

    <p> close to the middle. A good subtle touch. The watch also functions an IWC Calibre 79350 movement, that is a modified ETA (Valjoux) 7750 movement, using the seconds moved towards the six o’clock subdial and also the date removed. The Chronograph measures seconds and minutes only. This watch keeps superb time, inside 1 second each day and is antimagnetic also <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>evening dresses</a> . <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>sexy wedding gowns</a> . From the size you are able to see IWC’s bracelet removal program for the Ingenieur <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>bridal gowns</a> . , which permits the bracelet to become removed with two toothpicks in the event you wanted to. Extremely good program. The AR coated sapphire crystal is flat, and offers great visibility in vibrant light. <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>victorian wedding gowns</a> . Lume cheap fake rolex, however, is absolutely nothing to write house about. Clasp is really a foldover style with hidden button release on the side <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>2012 wedding dresses</a> . . A really nicely articulated titanium bracelet, extremely smooth and <a href=http://www.felldress.org/>backless wedding gowns</a> </p>
