Default Re: Making a net

Thanks for the continued ideas, it's helpful to collect different ways of approaching it to see which one would work best for the kids. I like the idea of soaking wood, since it might be easy to do a bunch at once and manage kids, but the experience of steaming the wood could be fun for them. The jig is another story, do we make one or two jigs and process them slowly or find a way to make multiple jigs easily so each kid can work on theirs at the same time? We'll see. Thanks again, if others have ideas I welcome them!

Another thought is the "humblefisherman" homemade net, though depending on how many kids you have finding enough tree branches that are naturally shaped like a net frame (his first net was a single branch that had the tips of the branches tied together) might take some time. Later on he built a net out of a Y shaped branch and just put a crosspiece on it to complete the circle and I would still go with the ghost bag vice the nylon mesh he had on his.

at around the 3:30 mark is a good look at his net.
