Despite the fact that the net is not considered by professional fishermen as the main gear, it is very often used both when fishing in the sea, in water bodies allowed for fishing by nets, and for many other purposes. Therefore, weaving networks is a very useful skill that can be useful to many, given that the technique can be mastered at home. Depending on the size of the prey, the method of fishing, the mesh can have cells of different sizes, as well as be made in various ways of weaving. Anyone who has ever wove a kapron or woodcutting network is a routine and painstaking work. However, if you take it seriously, the result can exceed all expectations.

How to weave a network at home
Before you begin to weave a network, you need to pick up the material. To do this, use kapron, nylon thread or fishing line.
Synthetic materials are more durable than others, do not rot and are not destroyed by water.
To shape the net, a special rope called a landing cord is used. Instead, you can use wire. As a sinker with floats, objects of rounded shape are used, without sharp corners, so as not to tear the network – pieces of foam, wood, bark. To keep them longer, they are covered with paint or varnish. The weights are pieces of baked clay or metal. Like floats, they should be smooth, so before attaching to the network they are treated with sandpaper, sanding the edges. As a rule, sinkers and floats are mounted on confusing nets that are woven from fishing line. In general, for fishing, a net is usually used from a fishing line, and landing nets and weeds are made from yarns.
Tool for weaving
For weaving a fishing net, as well as nets for other purposes, a special tool is needed – a shuttle. Today, such a tool can be purchased at a specialty store, but you can make it yourself. A thread or a fishing line is wound onto the shuttle; it performs the function of a needle. This is a small tool made of durable material with a length of 10 to 15 cm and a width less than twice the mesh. At one end of the shuttle the base is pointed and has a slot in the form of a rod, a thread is wound on it. At the second end it is fixed on a kind of two-legged tree. In addition to the shuttle, for flat weaving of cells, a die is used – it is a metal or wooden plate of small thickness (a few millimeters) and length, like a shuttle. This is a kind of pattern, the round of the rope around which is double the size of the cell.
The method of weaving with the help of a shuttle is as follows: a loop of rope or fishing line is put on the pointed part of the tool. Then it is tightened and pressed to the second end of the shuttle, and wound, turning the machine relative to the plane. Then a ring is made, a thread is pulled through it, making a loop with a diameter of 5 cm. A knot is formed below, to which a bar should be attached. The shuttle is wound up under the template, a thread is drawn through the formed ring. It is tightened, clamped with a finger, and the loop is tied with a knot. Nodes are of two types – with single and double overlap, which is formed when two cells are joined (upper and lower). Unary knots happen with a sweep through a little finger, from above or from below. Clearly the implementation of these types is shown in the figures, as well as in the video.
The gain in height and width of the future network of gear depends on the number of connected cells. When the first row is ready, a cord or bundle is passed through the cells, which is tied to a pipe or other fixed object, and begin to weave in length. Weaving in length is similar to weaving in width with the only difference that the pattern is applied not to the lower, but to the neighboring cells. When ready, the cells are removed from the pattern, which should be perpendicular to the network. In this order continues the weaving of the subsequent rows, each of which begins from the left edge. After the network is ready, it is immersed in hot water to tighten the nodules, floats are fastened to the upper edge, and floats are fastened to the lower edge.
How to weave a network of rope
Weaving a rope net will not be difficult even for a beginner. All the same shuttle and rail are used, the width of the latter is the size of a single cell. The thread is fixed on the tongue of the shuttle, wound on it. At the same time, it is hooked onto the tongue, then lowered down to where the two-sided shuttle is located, after which it is turned and the thread is raised upwards, clinging to the tongue. The shuttle must be fully wound with ropes. After that, the thread is cut, its ends are sealed with a cigarette lighter.
Then you need to make a loop with a diameter of one meter, fix it on some object, and tie the end of the thread from the machine to it. The bar is substituted for this thread, and the shuttle is wound up in a meter loop. The thread is tightened, a circular motion is made around the arm, the machine is wound up under the last two threads, and the resulting knot is tightened in the direction “towards itself”. Tied knot. Next, holding the working thread, we throw the thread on the arm, but the machine starts up under one extreme thread, tightening the loop, forming a double knot. When one row is ready, the bar should be removed from the hinges. All subsequent rows will be formed by capturing the free cells of the previous row.
How to weave a net of fishing line
Weaving of fishing nets is carried out from fishing line acquired in reels. The thinner the line, the more catching it is, but also less durable. So that it is not noticeable at a shallow depth, it is better to use a dark gray or blue fishing line. We need to weave a net of fishing line with a double rod knot. From fishing line you can weave not only fishing gear, but also economic for various household purposes. Catching various kinds of fish is carried out on a stack with cells of various sizes.
Weaving of the forest nets with their own hands is carried out in parts, the so-called tasks. They are assembled into an immediate net, secured to a thick rope or cord. To put a delhi, you need to mark on the cord, how many of them can be attached to this markup. So, if the size of each cell is 30 mm, the total length of the divide will be 16 cm. Therefore, one network will consist of three parts, and every third cell will be mounted on the cord with a gap of 16 cm.
The landing sequence will be as follows:
- The line needs to be fixed on the canoe.
- The end of the thread from the shuttle and the extreme cell of the net-binder is tied to the cord.
- The required number of cells is passed through the shuttle.
- The thread of the shuttle is attached to the next markup applied to the cord.
- The manual procedure is repeated until the entire mesh is strung.
Instead of weights, cords are often used that contain weights within themselves, playing the role of a weighting net. For fishing, you can weave nets of various kinds: nonsense, seine, basting, dragging, or Jacques. The trap fits in the shape of a hammock, the seine is similar in shape, but longer. Basting is distinguished by circular weaving and resembles a net, the drag is woven by cells, ranging from large to small ones, and Jacques resembles a net for a ball. In order not to get lost in the basics of weaving networks, you can use a video that shows the step-by-step implementation of this technique, understandable even for beginners.
