    Been working at this here and there but came across this video with some good pointers and thought I would pass it along. Need a bigger net...

    This is the way I was shown in FL many years ago. clearly a much smaller net but man I lost track of all the stuff that old guy was doing real quick lol

    Percy's nets are no doubt the best bunker nets available-have netted them at 40' depths with his nets

    I've been using Percy's nets for over 15 yrs . Best net money can bye for murdering bunker.
    He made me a 10ft net with the wieght of an 8ft net. Gets the job done and it's easier on my back.

    His stock nets are too heavy. I love the quality but the sink like a cone unless he lightens them up.
