Do the people that buy these nets at £2 each actually have any idea what a decent net is or are they that used to buying inferior quality that they don,t know any other ????
Most people who have been in the game some time make their own nets, simply because they know what type of nets they need. (There is a little of the monetary aspect to it as well ) A chap ferreting tight Cornish hedges does not need the same type of net that a chap ferreting Norfolk sand warrens does. So each makes nets that suit the ground they work.
Someone new to the game does not really know what they need, so goes by the consensus that what everyone else is buying is what he needs. The problem with that is, every one else does not have a clue what they need either. So no one gets what they want / need. The net maker gets no profit, and the buyers get nets that will not suit the ground they work. A real lose lose situation.
