Our Mission

From the outset, JD's focus has been on using classic materials and old world craftsmanship.

Each net frame is handcrafted using Carolina bamboo - a light, sturdy and fast growing grass. Mass production is just not in the cards for us. JD crafts made to order gear, allowing him to maintain quality control and attention to detail every step of the way.

We take a customer first approach. Our mission goes beyond the practical; we're dedicated to offering small town service and personalized touches that set us apart from the mainstream.

One of the hallmarks of a Hellbender is customizable handle length. JD works closely with you to create a net that not only fits your personal preferences but also your fishing style.

We have a range of options for the net bags, too. Our net bags are all made with catch & release in mind, providing a solution for conservation minded fly fishers like ourselves.

From the moment you place your order to the day you land your first catch, we're dedicated to providing exceptional service and personalized attention.

Thank you for being here,

Bailly & JD Berry
