    For any that's interested, some photo's of the assembly process and finished article are in a public, shared, G-drive folder Folder for FF Forums links – Google Drive for a little while... eventually I'll delete the folder and use the space for something else and the link will die...

    Meanwhile feel free to have a click and a nosey. If/when I have the time later I might set up an image hosting account and workout how to share an image publicly from there and go through the parts and assembly.

    Really great looking net. Looks like it would have a very expensive price tag in a shop. Great collaboration. Just don't leave it in the car park when you head for home.

    I'm really pleased with the result, both pan net assemblies are proper light, thanks in part to bumble's redesign taking down the wider part of the nut to 5mm and because coarse nets seem to be designed lighter. My "silverfish" net will work as a lighter (but larger than my current) river net for WBT and small Sea Trout, and the "carp" net will be cracking for Rainbow Trout, larger Sea Trout, accidental smaller Salmon. Both can be swapped back to my long handle when needed.

    Parts / Costs were -
    Old 1990s carbon mountain bike handlebar - free,
    Citric Acid (bit of kettle de-scaler) passivating solution - free under kitchen sink,
    Black cork, mountain bike hand-grips (there are cooler looking "bling" mountain bike parts but I chose these as they have no metal to corrode and are less likely to snag a loop of line) - 3.99,
    Bit of wood to bung other end of cut tube - free in off-cuts bin,
    2 part epoxy glue 1/4 of a pair of tubes - free in workshop,
    2 x 316 stainless nuts F.O.C. from Bumble (I'm guessing I might have paid 30 in a machine shop up here based on other jobs I've had done, but I don't know South Yorkshire rates) - I paid on bumble's generosity to a charity, nice people like him encourage that
    I'm waiting on a couple of nice stainless screw-thread eyes so I can attach a magnetic net hanger to the handle into the wooden bung I glued in - 1.90 each

    So could've been very cheap, but a bit more by choice. A fun project that feels a bit more special than the cut down broken net handle I was planning. Much more resilient to salt than that would have been too.
