Dr. Sam Lacina
Craftsmanship Across the Board
Dr. Sam Lacina started making nets under the tutelage of Ron Reinhold in 1994. Over the last 25 years he has refined and simplified that process for the home shop. For the last 18 years he has taught small group classes as well as demonstrating this craft at conclaves and fly fishing shows across the country. His nets have been featured as limited editions by Garden and Gun and the Orvis Company. In 2010 he produced a DVD to share these techniques with other woodworkers and fishermen. He continues to pursue his passion of sharing information and teaching. Sam has lived and fished in Michigan for the last 40 years. He is recently retired from his practice of Pediatric Cardiology, and with his background in medicine, he is always looking for safer and more efficient ways of work.
