As for the new toys to arrive I received a net that was crafted by Sam Lacina over at FlyFishingNets.net this net is made from 100% solid curly Maple and has a fit and finish like no other net I have seen before. The seller did change out the standard net for a Tenkara net in brown which complements this net nicely. It didn't come with a net release so I contacted Sam and purchased a leather net release that will be attached to a custom rod sling that I am making for my rods to transport in and out of the field. Here are a few pictures of the net this is Sams American Tenkara Net. I would highly recommend his nets to anyone as they are hand made here in the good ol USA.
I also received a pair of Kelty Vintage Series Mockingbird and Wren Packs. My goal is to find a way to attach them together for a strong day pack that can hold lots of items well organized for a day or longer trip. Currently they are just laying on the floor as I try to find the best way to attack them together. That will be another post for another day. For now I think it is time to grab a nap and follow the weather to see what it has in stock for the upcoming week. Till the next time enjoy and tight lines.
