    "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."

    "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."

Our Mission

At our workshop nestled in the heart of the Appalachian Mountains, we pride ourselves on our micro scale approach to crafting unique fly fishing nets. Our mission goes beyond mere practicality; we're dedicated to sustainable practices and personalized touches that set our nets apart from the mainstream.

From the outset, our focus has been on using earth friendly materials and traditional old world craftsmanship. Each net frame is meticulously handcrafted using locally sourced bamboo (a grass!), ensuring sustainability and minimizing our carbon footprint. We will always stay away from mass production in favor of small-batch, made to order fly fishing gear, allowing us to maintain quality control and attention to detail in every step of the process.

One of the hallmarks of our nets is their customizable features. Our customers have the opportunity to choose a custom handle length handcrafted to their specifications. We work closely with our customers to create a handle that works seamlessly with their fishing needs and carrying preference.

In addition to customizable handles, we offer a range of options for the net bags themselves. Our stream-friendly net bags are always made with catch and release fly fishing in mind, providing a gentle and sustainable solution for conservation minded fly fishers like ourselves.

At our workshop, we don't just craft nets; we craft an extension of your hand that is made specifically for you. 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.

Join us in our mission to craft unique, sustainable, hand crafted 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.
