Heart Wood Trade is the creation of Dustin Scott, an outdoor enthusiast who learned the art of fly fishing and woodwork from his late father.

The craftsmanship shines with dovetail details and his signature contoured handles that ensure a true grip when landing your catch.  Each net is a true one of one, handcrafted for you from fine hardwoods.

We solely create custom landing nets by commission. Each net typically takes 4-5 weeks to build. Orders placed today will start in four weeks. Click below to make your purchase.
