  14. i should be rigging a net this weekend so i should be able to take some pics depends when my new netting arrives ok
  15. i cant come to you as we are miles apart but ill offer some advice mate 1st get your self an old mountain bike inner tube and cut it into 20mm wide bands 2nd place your longnet on the ground in a field run it all out in a straight line 3rd place a pole in the ground at the start then every 5yds place your poles till you reach the end of your net remember if you have 200 yds of netting then you need to cover 100 yds to give you your bagging. 4th now drop 2 of your bands over each pole. 5th do the head line 1st by half hitching the head line every 90 odd meshes or what ever meshes long your netting is remember to achieve 100% bagging then bring a band up to the underside of your top line and twist and pull it over the top of the pole and push it down to the top of the head line and proceed along the net. 6th repeat this process in reverse for the foot line. remember to put the 1st and last pole through the meshes and tape them securely and all the other poles only attach to the head and footline. hope this helps mate i am sure now that i have put this post up other guys and gals on here will give you their way so you will get loads of advice mate and help. good luck

  18. hi all i make my own purse nets for ferreting from hemp or spun nylon but i have been asked if i can knit 6 fox nets as the same guy has been using my purse nets for a long while now and likes the quality that i turn out the question that i need to know is what materials should i go for he has suggested that he would prefer hemp so what ply should i go for and what mesh size is ideal i use a 2 1/8 inch mesh guide for purse nets but i imagine that maybe 3 inch would be more nearer to a fox net also how many meshes wide and what would the ideal length be 6ft??? 3mm draw cord??? and i guess 2inch heavy rings any info or advice please
