    Red face

    Well, following the instrutions and adding a lil to it. I finished my first bug net tonight.

    I used one of the olive green bug nets for a cot that I got from Academy, it cuts out to be 54" by 101". The green will match the camo Grand Trunk.

    Sewed it up as shown but used plain para cord on the bottom with a cord lock.

    Since I use the straps for suspension I put 3" worth of velcro to close the ends up completely.

    Only things is I cant lay here under it for but just a few minutes and a time... then I gotta get out.......

    Cuz.....






    It just tickles my BUTT, this was so simple and inexpensive.....

    Thanks for posting this....thread

    How can this be recommended for a sticky.
    Next to learning how to build a hammock from HF..
    This Bug Net is very easy to make and under $10.00 in some cases...

    I VOTE FOR A STICKY.....

    I didnt get them both finished but one is complete and one cut out. The one I got finished was for the Hammock Bliss double. Of course I lost time cuz I had to go outside and test fit it....Now I can retire that ENO bug guard from summer use.
