A COLLAPSIBLE LANDING NET


A COLLAPSIBLE LANDING NET

By C. H. BALDWIN

I had a good collapsible Landing net a year ago, but it turned up missing, and I must have laid it down just outside my boat after the excitement of landing a big one. So I decided to make one and save the cost for “bait.”

Cut about 18 inches, or any length desired, for handle from a good broom handle. Take a piece of 1/2-inch brass tubing (b), which you can get at any electrical shop. Turn down the lower end of handle (c) so the tubing will slip on 3 3/4 inches; use a wood rasp if you have no turning lathe.

Next take a piece of telegraph wire, and make the hoop for the net (a). You can bend it nicely by wrapping it around a four or six gallon crock. or anything round of proper size. Then bend each end of the hoop as shown in the cut at d,” and again bend a hook “e” on each end; can bend with a vise and hammer, or if you have no vise. pinch the ends in the jaws of a monkey-wrench and hammer them down.

Next, bore a 1/8-inch hole through the handle for the hooks to slip In, and from this hole on each side of the handle gouge a groove for the wire to set in flush with the handle. If you have no gouge, burn the groove in with a piece of the wire, red hot. Buy a net for 40 or 50 cents. Slip it on the hoop. Put the tubing on the handle. Fit the ends of the wire into the grooves. With the hooks ˇn the holes, slip the tubing down to cover the wire, and you have it.

Take an old fish line and wind the grip (f). Put a screw eye “g” in the end of handle to hang net on hook in your belt and the kink ˇs ready for business. Slip the tubing back, fold the net back over the handle and the “kink” will go in your suit case.
