The attached are wooden scoop nets that I make and I would be interested if any of your members would be interested in buying them. The idea started as a retirement gift for a friend and as I enjoy carpentry the idea grew. They are entirely hand made from steamed beech with an oak insert (variously stained and finished with Danish Oil) and unlike others on the market are not laminate: I have successfully landed trout to 5lb in mine.
The cost would be £30 incl p&p.

The Club is a private one, founded in 1877, of approximately sixty-four members and six Town Rod subscribers. The Club’s waters consist of about 12 miles of wild brown trout & grayling fishing in the main River Frome, River Cerne and River Piddle, together with attendant carriers and side streams. The waters extend both above and below the town of Dorchester and the Club employs a part-time keeper.
If you see any fishing, netting or trapping you think is illegal, please don’t tackle it yourself.
