Default Net Material

Since I am interested in local fish I need to improve on my capture tools. I need to make a fine netted seine net. Also want to make a better net attached to my painters pole. Both require net material that it quite fine. I would say holes should be 1/8 inch diameter or smaller. I’ll need 4 or 5 yards of it. If anyone has any suggestions please chime in.
Regards,
Steve Pituch

No clue on making nets, but I did find this article that explains why a plati-coat (like FlexSeal) may be beneficial if you plan on keeping caught fish alive (and less-stressed).

When I was doing something like that I just went to a store that sells cloth and sewing supplies. I searched among their cloth that at least resembled net material, and did find something that worked. That was about 15 years ago, so I don't recall exactly what the cloth was.

Mosquito netting or shade clothe might work. Check the hardware stores.

Thanks everyone,
The nearest Joann Fabric store is about an hour away, but I will be in that area tomorrow so I will check out the fabric. We also have a very good old time hardware store so I will check on the Mosquito/shade netting. The rubber spray seems like a good idea for large fish but I wonder if it is actually worse for less than 2 inch fish. The rubber coated nets I have seen are rather sticky (abrasive) and harder than cotton. But I will pick up some spray rubber.

Thanks,
Steve

That's a good point about the plastic coat being more appropriate for larger fish. Their size and weight won't be a factor for you with smaller fish.
I'm remembering now how my brothers and I used to take a cast net (poly or nylon...not sure) and catch fish all the time to put into our aquariums. I don't recall any ever showing signs of damage except the larger fish.
