Hello my name is Tony and I live in Pennsylvania. I enjoy tying knots and my really enjoy making nets and teachin others this useful craft. I wrote these instructions just over 30 years ago and they have stood the test of time.

Hi Tony and welcome. The ability to weave (tie?) a net is a very valuable skill. Not just for catching fish but also carrying stuff, storing things, and of course sleeping in!
Great info, thanks.
