Net For Live Capture Trap.

Yep, I've been making nets again, this one is a rather large purse net with a 2.1/4" mesh, I've made it as a net for use with a live capture trap,  the trap  that it will be used with is based on the sprung snare trap, but, with the snare aspect replaced by a net, not that this trap will be used in anger anyway, it's only ever going to be used as a demonstration piece to show another way to trap for food whilst out and about in the wilds.
