Quick set nets


Recommended Posts

Hi all I live in Australia and do a lot of ferreting with long nets and purse nets. I have being watching a lot of the videos on YouTube on how you guys use the quick set nets on the basket. I love the idea on how it works but I am unable to find the anything like that in Australia and to by it from over seas it will cost me an arm and a leg. Has any one ever made up the basket or has photos on what they have made. As you can see by the photos we just put poles in the ground and tie our nets to them. This does work but very time consuming any ideas or even web sites some one can point me into the correct direction would be great. I know I won’t be able to use the fibreglass or hazel wood poles as our ground is hard they will need to be metal. Yes it will have quite a bit of weight to it.

Well I have made start I will see how I go. So far  I think I have done okay. A few touch ups on the welding and then put strap and bag on the bottom. For the bag I am thinking of using a fine mesh fi

the plastic drum can be made fast and for free, it does the job, Dont have a pic of my double slot basket but i will put a video on from years back when i was in the process of testing.

Ask lifelong Cumbrian on here for his help, he a very busy man but is known for helping folk of he can, he designed the newer quickset basket that is now in production an is a lot better than the prev

Ask lifelong Cumbrian on here for his help, he a very busy man but is known for helping folk of he can, he designed the newer quickset basket that is now in production an is a lot better than the previous design, the new one the poles stack intop of each other an makes life easier, failing that I’ll happily stick some pictures of mine up for you to try an copy. What is the actual cost of a net to be posted over? Can’t be that mad, surely? They really  are a game changer, especially for ferreting

I am sure it is with out a doubt all you guys use the stuff and not seen a bad word. But so is the price SUPERB when I get it sent over I will keep saving $$$$$ and soon should be right. All I would probably need is two long quick set nets around 75 meters long in total length. Unsure what that is in yards.

Thank you to all I am going to give it a go. I have a welder grinder and tools needed to make one I will give it a shot and I will keep you posted. Just one more question on how you tie the net to the grommet if someone could please post up a photo or to that would be great.
