It’s a great skill to have mate, and sadly one that is being lost. I doubt 1 in 10 anglers now could tie a net. It’s one of those where once you know it, you find loads of uses for it.

I think so. Once you have a good frame you just start sewing round and round until you have the size you want. Then either knot it or close your meshes around a smaller ring.

Got the netting twine, got the frame(2 pieces of 20mm yellow gas pipe so I can collapse it for easier transport) just waiting for netting needles to be delivered.
