    zipperless bug net for a bridge hammock?

    Hey guys, heres a group question for you..................with a bridge hammock, what are some of the ways you can make a zipperless bug net? Has any one made a TED bug net on a bridge? Velcro? Bungee cords? Any suggestions are welcome!
    FYI: If you want to know what type a certain bear is, sneak up behind it and kick it. Then,
    run like crazy and climb up a tree. If the bear climbs the tree and eats you, it's a black
    bear. If the bear just pushes the tree over and eats you, it's a grizzly bear : )

    Shug looking at your bugnet makes me think of bacon meaning it is genius.

    Has anyone tested one of the zipperless bug nets & bridge hammock combos in serious bug situations? Shug makes mention of only having tested his in the back yard with just a few mosquitoes.

    I live in some serious black fly territory and that's in town as opposed to deep in the bush

    I'm still torn between putting full zippered bug protection or one like Shug's on the new bridge hammock - have to make my mind up soon!!

    There seems to be a relevant Shug video for almost every hammocking topic...

    Thanks, once again, Shug.
