    Default MRA Auction XII Lot 52: A craftsman-made maple landing net

    LOT 52

    Walnut and ‘Tiger’ Maple laminated landing net.

    Professionally made using a fully waterproof adhesive and finished with 6 coats of a durable marine grade gloss finish lacquer.

    The handle is decorated with an Abalone shell motif of a fish and engraved with ‘The Monnow

    The net head has dimensions of 15ins x 10ins and the net bag is approx 10inch deep. The net bag itself is a quality (not Chinese!) UV resistant rubber type and shakes dry, so no more wet back!

    A fixed brass pin and split ring is fitted at the base of the handle.

    Kindly donated by Nick Reeves



    Trout fishermen revere the trout; trout, on the other hand, unaware of their sublime standing in man's world, revere nothing, including man, a creature they seem to view with special contempt. Nihilism is a rare trait in fish but trout are full of it. The old men liked that.

    £25 looks nice. Just need to scratch that Monnow rubbish off and put The Eden.
