    ENO Guardian Bug Net - Please Help!

    Can't figure out how to set it up without it being to close to my face. Do any of you have pictures of how you set it up?

    Thanks in advance.

    I'm not sure of the differences exactly... I have the hammock bliss bug net... They looked identical when I was shopping... Does it just have rope attached to the ends of the bugnet near the holes the suspension passes through?
    Live, Laugh, Love, if that doesn't work. Load, Aim and Fire, repeat as necessary...

    The eno bug net should have tiny plasic clips that attach to a separate line. Are you trying to use that line for the bug net as a ridge line for the hammock? it's been a few years since I hung the ENO with the bug net. I don't remember having issues with the netting being to close to my face though.

    If you have a ridgeline on your hammock, then you shouldn't have any problems. But if you don't, then you tie the little rope that should have came with the bug net from one end of the hammock to the other. You can tie it to either the tree straps, or just the end of the hammock. The little clips on the bug net then attach to the rope. With the hammock ridgeline, I just let the net lay on top of the line and don't even clip it....RR

    I hang my Guardian bug net from loops prusik knotted to my tarp line. Until now, I have always hung my ENO Pro Fly tarp over my tarp line. I have never had a problem with this set up.

    I recently upgraded to a HG Cuben Fiber tarp. I am hesitant to hang this tarp over the tarp line, I have read here that this may allow abrasion and eventual deterioration of the tarp. Looking forward to getting out to try alternate methods for hanging my tarp and bug net.
