A lot of good that is

This is my second net built. It still needs the net sewn in. I wanted to get some pics taken of it with my new camera. The hoop is out of walnut and maple and the grip is a nice piece of box elder burl I found next to the stream. The inset is chokecherry burl, which I like alot. I need to find a bigger piece to do the main part out of chokecherry. I tried making the grip a little more grippier. I used a rotory tool to give it some character. I love how it turned out and am starting to work on a third. Plus I am really wanting to build another rod. I also took a few random pics with my new camera to test it out. It is the gopro camera, set to take apic every 2 seconds.

Found this pic in one of my folders that I had not looked at in some time. This was taken in my Bamboo Room, or the room I build rods in. I am from Idaho and I love it. Someday I want a VW bus painted with the Idaho license plate scene all the way around. That would be nice. It would have a fly tying desk in it and a place to dry my waders.

Brown Trout

I finally found some time to get to the river and fish. I only landed one, but had lots of strikers.
