Customer Feedback

  • Cody from Boise, Idaho

    "Before ordering my Hellbender net I reached out via email with questions and they responded immediately.

    They built the net exactly how I asked and the craftsmanship was incredible.

    I will definitely be ordering another one very soon."

  • John from Beaufort, SC

    "I am very happy with both service as well as quality.

    I like the patina of the frame and handle and the copper wire is a great idea.

    The net is very comfortable, light weight, and nicely balanced."

    Ordering was a breeze & I received it within a week.

    Fantastic business that I will be using again."

Our Mission

From the outset, our focus has been on using unique materials and traditional craftsmanship techniques.

Each net frame is meticulously handcrafted using locally sourced bamboo (a grass!), ensuring sustainability and a minimal carbon footprint. We stay away from mass production in favor of made to order gear, allowing us to maintain quality control and attention to detail during every step of the process.

At our workshop nestled in the heart of Appalachia, we take a customer first approach to our craft. 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 our nets is their customizable handle length. We work closely with our customers to create a handle that not only fits their personal preferences but also simplifies the fishing experience.

In addition to handle length, we offer a range of options for the net bags themselves. Our stream-friendly net bags are always made with catch & release in mind, providing a simple solution for conservation minded fly fishers like ourselves.

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

Join us in our mission to craft sustainable, artisanal fly fishing nets that not only meet your needs but also reflect your values. Together, we can make a difference in the world of fly fishing and preserve the beauty of our natural environment for generations to come.

Thank you for being here,

Bailly & JD Berry
