NET. A device for catching fish fowl, and sometimes quadrupeds. It is formed by threads interlaced. For making nets, about a dozen wooden needles of various sorts, some round, others flat, will be requisite, a pair of round-pointed scissors, and a reel to wind off the thread. The packthread or strong cord must be the evenest that can be procured, and the size of the meshes depends upon the object for which the net is intended. See Halliep, Bird-catching, &c.
