Ash Framed Landing Net – 21″ x 26″

Ash framed landing nets are made from seasoned ash which Paul cuts using only straight-grained strips.

Firstly the ash strip will be steam treated to soften the natural resins, this makes the ash strip pliable enough to bend confidently. It is then placed and secured on a former, which is made to the shape that the ash frame needs to be. This is left to dry out and cure and may take several weeks. Once the drying out period is over, the ash frame can be removed from the former and will remain in the desired shape. It is then placed in an impregnation tank to seal and protect the timber from the elements.

Landing Net Handles 5’10” (two-piece)

These are made from good quality bamboo which are heat-treated and straightened and pattern flame-toned and finished in a gloss varnish and inscribed in neat Indian ink with an original ink drawing of a carp.  The End Cap is turned brass and the brass threaded head for the net is a standard 3/8 BSF.
