Default TLC: ABSOLUTELY most beautifull, Best Workmanship Nets

When I saw this net it absolutely took my breath away. The cocobolo wood SIMPLY cannot have its beauty caught on camera. They now come with a net magnet attached made form the same exquisite wood at no extra charge.
They cost a tiny bit more than Brodin or Fisknat but to compare a brodin or Fisknat to TLC is like comparing a walmart special to a sage z axis. They are starting to appear in shops all over the west, if your local shop doesnt have one you can mail order one from anglers workshop
(tried to upload a picture, but didnt seem to go through, if anyone has a cocobolo TLC net please upload)

I think a certain "somebody" should sell these nets in the NAFFF Forum Fly Shop

These nets are really awesome looking. I have seen them start popping up in fly shops all over California. The guide nets are extra cool because they have dots at inch intervals and a '10' and '20' inscribed in them, letting you measure fish up to 29 inches. The other nets look fugly compared to them. The wading nets include a net magnet made of the same high quality wood at no extra charge. I have seen these nets at riverside ski and sport, fisherman spot, fly fishing specialty, and his and her fly shop said they are going to be getting some in very soon.
