  1. Probably a bit late ,, but I know a bloke who also makes cracking wires ,,
  2. Don't throw cash at inferior nets ,, as the lads above have said ,, Nelson's the man to contact.
  3. This knitting nonsense in the place of employment is definitely hard graft ,,
  4. If you give it a try , make the little loop (fly mesh) a tad smaller than the girth of the mesh board,, and do not count the knot of the fly mesh , the knot below is knot 1,, so for a 15 across net ,, make 30 knots on the chain/ link start ,, good think about this method also is that both rings will be stitched exactly the same..
  5. Here is the old fashioned way of knitting,, no need for split rings, or other gadgets to start of a net ,, just leave enough of a tag end to braid onto the ring once the net is finished , this method is really good especially if one requires a net with a good depth . Please excuse her indoors Y fronts drying out on the radiator.
  6. Good Man ,, it's definitely worth getting into ,, the more you practice then the more you will get better , if you need any tips etc then just shout
  7. That's it Netmaker,, these so called rabbit net suppliers should learn 1st to actually supply sheet netting stitched in a fashion that actually works ,, and to charge a young lad that amount is taking the piss ,, but so called net suppliers these days ain't into looking after the young ,, which are the future .. which tbh ain't looking good ..
  8. Sorted 10 of these lumps out for a young lad,, so from this ,to this .. I was going to add nice new black rings until I seen the mesh size !! Only 3" stretched!! , Poor lad paid £3 quid per net ..
  9. Nels0n is the man,, superb gear ,, look at the difference in depth from the usual netting,, really supple , with uniformed meshes .
  10. Very handy ,, I've sent you a pm
  11. There is a lad in Oz that imports gear of Nels0n who is UK based ,, purse nets , long nets twines etc , basically everything you might need ,, if you wish I'm sure I will be able to forward the lad in Australia's details ,,

    I've yet to finish rigging the thing , the weather ain't been kind ,, her indoors said one of the pictures look like Jordans Sookers ,, once I darken it down , it will make a nice bit of kit ,,
  13. Lad called Dave huddart ,, excellent at what he does ,, contact him on face book.
  14. Les makes all his carry boxes himself,, rigs all his long nets also ,, if and it's very rarely he needs a few purse nets to up his stock then he only goes to trusted net makers ..
  15. All netting and net gear is supplied by nelsons net loft here in the UK,, so the quality is superb.
  16. Give this place a call,, Seine Fyke Nets - Coastal Nets Limited WWW.COASTALNETS.CO.UK Commercial Fishing Equipment Suppliers With many years' experience in fishing net supply...
  17. Les has 4 and 6z,, I'm sure the 6z has a stretched mesh size of 4 3/8",,
  18. Sun's out,, so regarding Trammel nets,, here is the start of the 1st of many.. Drink halted production though,, ah well we very rarely see the sun shine up this end.
  19. The Z denotes which direction the twines twist,, Z left lay twist S right lay twist.
