    ENO Guardian bug net suspension mod

    Since the line clips on ENO's Guardian bug net won't fit over anything much larger than the line that comes with it, I came up with a quick, simple modification to make it fit Amsteel.
    If someone else suggested this previously, my apologies. Given the vast amount of information in these forums, it wouldn't surprise me at all if this has been posted before, I just haven't run across it yet.

    Only tools required are scissors or a knife

    Material required: 1mm string. The string that comes with the net is perfect, but you'll be cutting 12-18" off it's length. I used some 1mm Dacron fishing line I had on hand.

    Thread the string through the existing loop that attaches the clip to the net and tie it off to itself creating about a 1" loop [1]. I used a single fisherman's bend.
    The pictures show the rest.

    I hope this is helpful

    [1] I have fat fingers so I want the extra length to make things easier for me

    If it's stupid but works, it isn't stupid.

    I have had two or three of the plastic clips break on me. I'm pretty sure my next mod will be removing and replacing them with small carabiners. Once I make the mod I will take some pictures to share.
