Bitterroot Custom Nets

A good net is worth it's weight in gold, and they certainly dont have to be ugly either.

With the raise in popularity of the Keep Em Wet campaign, a good net is also going to cause less damage to the fish....which we all can agree is a good thing if we're to follow the ethic that a wild fish is too valuable to catch just once

Enter Bitterroot Nets.  Hand crafted one at a time in Spokane,  and they're as custom as you want them to be.

Denny put together a drift boat/ lake net that I use extensively in our raft and in my pontoon boat when fishing lakes.  For me it really shines in the pontoon because there's nothing worse than having to try and land a fish while sitting in a pontoon with a tiny net.  That dance is horrible, and the length of the lake net pictured above is awesome.

The inlay and different types of wood and burl they use are stunning.  Have a project in mind, contact them and they'll design a net as close to your idea as they can.

You can buy a $15 net anywhere, but these are functional works of art.

  1. That is my Brother in Law, Denny Carson. He is, hands down, one of the most talented wood workers I have ever seen. His passion for fishing and creating functional art is manifest in the nets he creates.
