yup just like it sayes on the tin! if you pop in to any angling shop and ask for a drop net aka crab net and you can expect to part with best part of a tenner or more,well given my tight arsed nature i decided to make my own to a prety much same spec design as the shop baught one,firstly i made a wanted thread on free-cycle ( Regions of United Kingdom ) for old and damaged anglers keep nets,these are the type of net that were once used all the time to put yer catch in till end of the days fishing,these days most waters ban them except for match fishing. Within 5 hours i had 5 to pick up locally from members of my local group. here is how to make them in realy easy fashion,all you need is some cable ties (wire could also be used).basicly cut every 3rd section at the rim of the next simply cable tye the botom section in a bunch with a bit of weight like steel or lead,now add 3 or 4 equally placed lines on to the rim then tye the other ends to a split ring or just onto the 5-10yard drop line.simply tying some bait in the bottom and yer done! see pics below of some i made to go crabbing at weymouth: and the result was 20 big spider crabs to cook up! give it a go!
