Default NH made landing net

Does anyone know of someone making landing nets in New Hampshire? I found a couple of commercially available nets made in Maine but I'd like to find one made closer to home if possible.

Thanks!

I don't know any in NH but you can't beat the handmade one by Stevens over in Maine. I have one and there workmanship is beautiful.

Charlie Preston in Henniker, NH makes some of the best nets I have seen, well worth looking into.

I too have one of Charlie's nets. Not only is it of the highest quality but also a work of art.
