hey. just a quick question! Could someone explain to me about setting the bagging. As I dont know a huge amount about longnetting Ive never been to sure what 100% bagging meant. How do i get the net to have 100% bagging if i give a go at making it?

if you wanted a 50yd net with 100% bagging, youd have to knit 100yds of net then tie it onto 50yds of line...

Just wanted to show you how I made some cheap 30 meter quick sets
As some one said yesterday that they thought they might mess it up if
they tried, so I just want to show how easy, and cheap it is to do it yourself.


So too start with you need some sheet netting.

Here I'm using 6z 2" mesh, 15 meshes deep, and 200 yards long -£20

Some 8n nylon cord 132 meter reel - £11

(edited to add, that these poles were crap, and one rabbit snapped a pole all on its own http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... )
Some electric fencing pole with 2 or the connectors cut off, and 2, the top, and bottom left on -70p each

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

First lay out the nylon cord to the desired length, top and bottom lines

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Then bunch it up, at one end, next to your sheet netting

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

The sheet netting should, hopefully come with string through the top, and
bottom meshes, tied in a loop.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Untie the string, and attach your long length of nylon too it

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

then pull it all the way through

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Do this top and bottom

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Then stretch out the nylon, and secure it at both ends

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

You can then find the end of the netting, and start feeding it along the nylon
by just pulling it from one end

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Once you have it layed out all the way to the end
Pace out 5 paces and drop a pole (edited to add, that these poles were crap, and one rabbit snapped a pole all on its own http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... )

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Then starting from the second from furthest pole, pick up the net
and pull it to the furthest pole, this sets the bagging, if you want 100%
bagging, pull it all the way to the end pole, if you want 50% then just
pull it half way to the end pole (edited to add, that these poles were crap, and one rabbit snapped a pole all on its own http://www.thehuntinglife.com/forums/pub... )

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Then work your way back, repeating for each pole, so you
end up with a pile of bagging between each pole

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Once you have all the net you want to use layed out, cut off the excess
and retie the ends for next time

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

You can then tie in the first pole, which you tread through the meshes
and then secure the top and bottom lines

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

For the middle poles, you just secure the top and bottom lines, but
dont feed the pole through the meshes

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...

Then the jobs a goodun.

So you can use what ever you use to put it into for storage.

I'm using a cheap over sized game bag -£20

A paper round bag, or quickset basket will also work just as well.

http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v222/P...


I had access to a hall, which made it a bit easier, but you could also
do this all on grass, it would just snag a little more.

I hope that helps anyone who is interessed in making their own.

I'm not saying these nets will be better than whats on the
market already, but I am certainly saying they are cheaper.

And if like me, you preffer to catch in some thing you have made yourself
Its a good way to go.

Total price for 3 30 meter quick sets, and a carrier


£55.70

hi i was just wondering if you have got round to making a longnet out of that netting as i was thinking of getting some and also does it come with a line through the top and bottom meshes so you can easily thread the top and bottom meshes with nylon cord.

hey. when you drag the bagging how do you make sure there is the same amount between each pole? as if you drag it surely it will all go to one end?

ANYONE TELL ME THE LENGTH OF POLES FOR LONG NET AND DISTANCE BETWEEN THEM.
PLASTIC FENCE POSTS LOOK GOOD AND ARE LIGHT AS I WILL ONLY USE THEM IN DAY TIME
IM GUESSING THE END POLES ARE FIXED WOVEN TO NET
MIDDLE POLES ATTACHED TO TOP AND BOTTOM LINE AND ARE KEPT THERE
TO SAVE KEEP SETTING THE KILL IN EACH SECTION OF NET.
