You can make them from plastic 25 litre drums or laundry baskets if you just want to catch some or do you want to learn the old skills ? 

I like learning old skills honestly. Been building all sorts of nets for a while now , started when I was like 13 and I'm 24 now and I build hoops ,gill , and wire nets mainly for my own fun but like trying to learn other stuff. Honestly stared by learning how but make purse nets from a few UK guys back when I first discovered you tube.

Just wire nets I put together from time to time


The math becomes a pain at times but there something magical about it I absolutely love. If only peoel who see me do it would stop asking if I could knit a blanket or a hat ?
