Here is a fine representation of Maple Burl that has been inlaid with copper where bark inclusions showed at the surface. The handle itself is strengthened by a piece of very hard Wenge laminated between the two burls. The hoop is Wenge & Maple with a Curly Mahogany throat. It was a Christmas gift from a father to his son. The son's initials are engraved onto the handle butt and inlaid with copper. An Adams fly is engraved in the handle and inlaid in copper. The copper is subtle until light hits it just right and it pops! This net also includes an integrated magnetic catch made from the same Maple Burl and has copper inlays as well. It sports a stainless steel clip to attach to a fly fishing vest.
