Yah, I don't know why it is so hard to get true colors to come out in a photo. I have to mnkey with the editor just to get close. That's a beautiful net. If she appreciates it as much as I like it you scored big points with it.

JP, I am not sure what it is. I googled purple heart to get a photo, and it was in the species index of a hardwoods site. It looks like the back side of a strumstick or dulcimer type instrument. If you look at the big end it's off the table about as far as a bridge would hold it up. Just guessing.

I was amazed, and honestly the service was awesome I did not mind spending the money at all and will be buying another one for myself from Greg.
Your Purple Heart net is beautiful, I looked at it for months before I ordered my net. His work is amazing, I am trying to get out to fish with him.

Nice that you and your lady got out on the water.

Sounds like a great day even though the fishing was slow. I am still trying to get my wife on the water, I think that she would love it.

Thank you, he does amazing work. Eventually I will have to make a trip down to your guys' neck of the woods and maybe we can all head out fishing.

It is a lot of fun and a lot easier to spend money on fly fishing gear without explanation

Here is a photo of us towards the end of that day.
