Default Finished My Landing Net

Howdy,

I picked up some netting and twine at the local marine shop. Couldn't find ghost net locally.

Turned out not bad. The finishing seam could have been a little neater but what it lacks in beauty it makes up for in personal character. I love the satisfaction of making my own gear. Saved myself a few bucks. Anywho this was what I came up with.

Thanks, I used a piece of cable, from a bike lock to trace the loop pattern on the maple board.[COLOR="Silver"]
