The White Willow Fishing Creel

Untitled document

Made to a traditional design, from English willow, worthy of Jeremy Fisher 

Strong and light, keeps fish (and picnics) cool

Hand stitched bridle leather straps, with solid brass fittings

The Willow, which has been de barked leaving this lovely pure white willow.  In time the willow will mellow to a soft buttery yellow colour

Willow is high in natural tannin, and natural preservatives, which is the reason why fishing baskets were made in it.  In the days when people walked considerable distances for a day's fishing, it was important to keep your valuable catch as fresh as possible, and that the willow did admirably, quite apart from the basket being light to carry
