This net is made of the beautiful and incomparable Purpleheart for the handle. Its hard to believe a natural wood can have this rich, purple coloration! The hoop is made of repeating bands of walnut and tiger maple. The net itself is a vinyl ghost bag. All my nets I categorize as "trout nets" have a hoop measurement of 15"L, 8"W and 10" deep. Also known as a 12.5 in the ghost bag replacement world.
I like building my nets with a slightly longer handle. I find them to be more versatile. Also, every one of my net handle are free formed. I do not use a jig to build the handles so every single one is unique in size, shape and of course, the wood. This one has a very cool "fishtail" shape at the butt end. Overall length is 32"
