Recommended Posts

All very interesting and reminds me of my first attempts in the early 1980s, it was all trade secrets then. Those that knew how wouldnt tell others the ins and outs of it. My neighbour was a eletrician and that wire reel thing did cross my mind as one way of doing it, but I never tried it. I prepared the net in loops at home and tied it ready for letting off in the field which worked a bit, but gave several crossed lines and few rabbits. There were no longnet books or dvds at the time and I trid to get snippets of information off those who netted. Then a certain book come out in 1989 and all was revealed, and since then its been all end pins, trad nets and, sorry, backpegging. Best of luck with the great game.

to be honest lamps , that net doesn't look to have much bag in it. although that could just be the pic.

 

also on the second pic down, that peg (pole) is either not pushed in far enough cos the bottom line is sitting high .

 

another tip, is to set the poles at an angle. so that the rabbits runn on to the mesh.,

 

and the top line could do with being tighter. apart from that :D

 

just keep practicing mate, its the only way to lern . all the best TOMO

Lamps,

 

The "do you really think so" was not aimed at you, but at the person who likes threatening people and calling them names.

 

 

PS: I have given you good advice, but on a tidy forum. Oh and get young lamps to enter that comp.
