    I "thought" i'd keep my ENO Guardian when I upgraded my gear to something lighter.

    Not after seeing this thread !

    Now...... who can make me one of these ? (Yeah, I know its not rocket science but I'd rather support a fellow hanger by contracting it to be done)

    You can do this!!!

    I ordered 7 yards of nano no-see-um from Dutch on Monday. It arrived this afternoon. I was able to knock one of these out tonight in under an hour. It was my second ever, and I made it for my wife's hammock. I also make little channels on both of the ends and added a length of Lash-it and a cord lock to cinch them after installing it on the hammock. Here's the fabric cut pattern I use, doubled over fabric, of course:

    I made mine the same way. Except I made one end a 16 inch opening with drawstring, so I can slide it over my hammock and off to an end in the event that bugs weren't obnoxious.

    Well, I clearly made an incorrect measurement in there, but it works! Added a shock cord channel on one side so I can shove it all back when I donít need it. I think it was probably more trouble than itís worth. If I were to do this again Iíd simply tie a knot on the end. Also measure my ridgeline correctly.

    The tapered shape is great! I was in there for an hour during dusk and no mosquitos made their way in despite the bottom being ďopenĒ.

    Itís resting on the ground in the pictures, but picks itself up when cinched. The hammock is also a little low because I was trying out a new suspension knot. Itís a slippery rope.

    Thanks a ton for putting the instructions together. I never thought Iíd be able to make a bet myself.

    Just made my first Fronkey bugnet and overall think it came out great!

    One big issue though... why is it hanging SO LOW below my hammock? This is a WB Traveler (10' hammock, 101" RL) and its hung at proper tension. I used RSBTR .67oz NoSeeUm mesh that is 54" wide. And i followed Fronkey's video instructions. Was Fronkey's netting not as wide of fabric? Does having a longer hammock make that big a difference in how low it hangs? Do I just need to cut off a couple inches from the bottom and maybe bring the angles in a little also? Thanks for any advice!

    Congrats on the accomplishment!
    I always cut 6"-12" off the bottom of my Fronkey style bugnets, depending on how wide the fabric is.

    Cutting a little off of the bottom is a good idea. Mine sags the ground slightly, so a 6” trim would do the trick.

    When I made my FBN I used Fronkey’s video, but borrowed the idea from a “Fronkey bugnet 2.0” video where they used Omni tape on one end to slide it over my hammock and quilts when I don’t need the net. On my next FBN, I would opt for a light weight zipper and a bigger opening instead of the Omni tape. I would have at least a 3ft long opening. My current opening is about 18” and is a lot of work to slide past my UQ. The Omni tape sticks to my netting.

    Overall, I’ve been very happy with my net and the build was easy enough.
    If you don't know where you are going, you'll end up someplace else.

    Cut it down... 12” off the bottom and brought the angles in to the same dimensions based on the instructions. Probably just a shade tighter than would be optimal, but it’s not “too tight” still great. Probably won’t work w/ a puffy winter quilt, but I wouldn’t likely need the bug net then anyway

    Added some channels & shock cord at the suspension “holes” (upper corners) to allow it to be cinched closed better so all in all, much better than round 1. Final weight for those who care is only 4.2oz
