Net Making – Fishing Net – How To Make Your Own Fishing Net

In this video I show you how to make your own fishing net. I will demonstrate how to load a netting needle and then how to determine the depth of the fishing net. Once the depth of the net has been established, the net is then made by adding more netting to the desired length.

    Great video, thanks. Just one point, a closed net is 1.4 times the length of an open net. So if you need a net 1m x 1m, you need to make it 1.4m long and wide using your method.

    This is the best video of ever found explaining how to make fishing net, especially because you do a few rounds over and over instead of just one demonstration and then tell somebody to repeat, and I appreciate that. Some of us have to see it more than once in one video to fully get the gist if you will. Thanks so much for your hard work I will now make my first fishing net for a mermaid costume! Best of luck to you you’ve learned a new subscriber!

    I’d like to try net making. Sometimes I visit an Indian shell midden here in Louisiana where we find parts of turtle shell net gauges. They are over 1000 years old.

    Thx i am going to try it

  10. steve cummins on June 7, 2020 at 5:27 pm

    Thank you.

    Any idea how to estimate how much cordage needed for a given mesh size, # down and#up?

  11. Shanice Cheng on June 7, 2020 at 5:28 pm

    Thank you so much. Never made a net before, but I needed one for my garden to deter cats. Your explanation is clear which follows the video, and made it less daunting to try. I am already at my second layer of loops (length) and should have my net ready in a few hours. Oh I should add, I do not have any of the needles, or board but I can easily replace the needles with a slim stick and just cut the desired width from a hard cover to replace the board. All is good, anyone can start to do immediately. Many thanks again.

  24. Jaz flaz on June 7, 2020 at 5:45 pm

    but how do you add extra line in if you want a longer net, apart from that was good

  25. TOJO T Y on June 7, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    Good worck sir

  26. Edward Stagner on June 7, 2020 at 5:46 pm

    I was watching survival Russia YouTube channel anyway he told a story where somebody took a cotton net like you just made there and soaked it in diesel fuel maybe it’ll work with some some other stuff and let it dry and Russia they have a lot of moisture and huge flies anyway they didn’t like the smell and they would put it in a plastic bag when they got out to wherever they were going they would put this net over their head with those huge holes and the flies wouldn’t bother him. Enjoyed the show you make it look easy!

  27. Mathirappilly Xavier on June 7, 2020 at 5:50 pm

    Thanks for the tutorial. It is very simple and easy to learn within minutes

  28. Robert Turner on June 7, 2020 at 5:51 pm

    Great – very helpful, clear and well presented. Planning on making a v small net for a model ship so prob need to practise on something larger first! Many thanks.

  33. Dmm Dmm543 on June 7, 2020 at 5:54 pm

    I’m hoping to make a cargo net out of 3/8 nylon rope for my trailer. Thanks

    I’m just starting to try and learn how to make my own net. I have all the material I need for it except the mesh gauge board. I cant seem to find any . Should I just make my own or do you have a source where I can find one ?

  38. Ken Denton on June 7, 2020 at 6:02 pm

    Johnny, thank you so much for showing us how to do this net. My dad showed me how to tie one when i was about 12 years old but I didn’t keep up with the skill and therefore, I lost it. He had a wooden needle and wooden gauge for the size of the holes. The gauge was oval shaped and about 4 inches long. I am going to build a needle and gauge and start tying nets just so I can pass it on to my grand kids. Thanks again.

  39. Shannon Buchko on June 7, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Your video is excellent however it must be what I am using because it’s like I have slip knots and it’s not working for me but it’s the line I’m using I think I don’t know how to correct it or if I need just need a whole new line, any suggestions?

  40. Adam Le on June 7, 2020 at 6:03 pm

    Hello dear
    Please tell me what the yellow thing call ?
    Thank dear

  41. 14 star on June 7, 2020 at 6:04 pm

    Your teaching method is soo good…….

  42. John Grundy on June 7, 2020 at 6:08 pm

    When loading your needle, put 2 turns around the pin and it will hold without you having to pinch it with your fingers. It’ll also hold when your needle is nearly empty. If you don’t have a gauging board, you can just use your fingers, 3 fingers is a good mesh size, but you can use 4. If you’re using your fingers for gauging you can work from right to left by putting the needle DOWN through the mesh on the left, then twisting the mesh between finger and thumb before you make your sheet bend knot. Incidentally, I thought when I was watching your video, that it would be good to show how to tie the sheet bend knot before going on to the net making part 🙂 I hope some of this helps. All the best, J

    I have a silly question to ask. Where can I order the supplies online (stores in my area are still closed) so I can try my hand at this?

  44. Yhan Sabedra on June 7, 2020 at 6:11 pm

    No hablo gringo

  45. TomJeffersonWasRight on June 7, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    What you are making is called webbing. It is homologous to making cloth. It is a relatively simple, repetitive action. You can flail the water all day with webbing, and catch nothing.

    A net is an object that can be used to catch fish (or other prey). A fishing net has webbing, float line, floats, a lead line, leads, a bag, hauling lines, and has been shaped. A net is usually dipped in preservative. A net is homologous to making a garment, that serves a purpose. Building nets is a far more complicated skill, particularly shaping the form of the net. Trawls and many other nets are not flat, but shaped somewhat like a funnel.

    But well begun is halfway done. Good luck in your progress to making nets. I am a retired net maker. I made seines and otter trawls.

  46. Peter Kitching on June 7, 2020 at 6:13 pm

    well demonstrated , needed the repetitive coaching.

  47. Syed Gillani on June 7, 2020 at 6:16 pm

    You, Sir, are an awesome teacher. God bless you.

  48. KS Johnnysan on June 7, 2020 at 6:16 pm
