New Teardrop Net

Post by Barbulus » Sat Apr 27, 2019 12:01 pm

Well I have just had the pleasure of meeting David (Old Man River) and his wife taking delivery of my new "Teardrop" net and pole while they are en route to a well deserved holiday. I am absolutely "over the moon" with the my latest acquisition; custom made and, this time, I specified a net slightly larger than perhaps the "norm" in anticipation of some serious "carp fishing" this season coming on an historic lake in Southern England. I am not sure if the photographs do the net justice but the craftsman-ship and finish is absolutely superb. Thank you David for taking the time to deploy your skills and make this ageing "hippy" - aka Carp person - very happy this morning despite the raging gales outside !

There are some folk I would like to thank from TFF along these years: David (OMR) of course for today's delivery, Northern Nomad for his friendship - we really need to sort that fishing and a beer - for a separate and also superb two piece cane custom made handle and net and the "MkiV" catapult, Paul Cook (shot tube), Santiago and Sussex Mikey for the floats and an anonymous TFF'er who hand crafted some amazing wood ferrule stoppers and the Redmire "Chess Set" from the "fallen" oak tree at Bernithan which I have posted photographs of previously. Add on Mark of course and other amazing people here and I think all I now need is to "get fishing" ......... thank you all. :Hat:

Matthew that net looks remarkably familiar :Wink:
It is a thing of beauty - and yes! David is a master craftsmen - I sincerely hope you catch the Carps desired when using it.

You have your way. I have my way. As for the right way, the correct way, and the only way, it does not exist.

Wow, there is some really nice kit on show here, hopefully in a year or two I may be lucky enough to have a traditional outfit of my own. There are some very talented craftsmen on here.
