Got myself a sock net, any suggestions on a good way to attach a pipe handle onto the net? I have a few ideas but keen to hear any alternatives.
Also, any advice on what to do with the white string which when taunt holds the inner rings rigid? They are complicated things to set up and they came with no instructions.
My kitten typed the following, I have no idea what it means but thought I would leave it.

thats good was that in the dirty water fishforpot21/10/2011 at 2:54 am #18926
Biggest catch I ever got was in chocolate soup water ….they are chasing the fresh water ….they dont care if its clean or dirty …….
When its dirty they are all over the river , unless the flow is high in the middle of the river , then they trickle along the edges ….
Its still dirty …..seriously considering another crack tonight ……21/10/2011 at 8:18 am #18932

Plenty of people baiting in the Kaiapoi today.
Waimak is still dirty but there was some bait coming in at the mouth.
No idea how the setnetters went but I got a couple of pound dragnetting. Small sticks & leaves also meant a drag cleaning it.23/10/2011 at 5:52 am #18954
I got 8 lb yesterday at the mouth …….today I got 3 lb in the surf , then dropped back a tad , got another 2 lb … then on the outgoing tide I got another 6-7lb …..I was all set to gloat to the olds , Id left the old man in the surf with the drag net ….he mighta had 2 lb when I left him at about 3.30pm …..by the time I got back to him at 5pm Id say he had somewhere close to 16lb …..it was spewing towards the river , tho still in the surf , the drag netters were getting 2-3lb per run ….23/10/2011 at 6:30 am #18956
i saw your set net up high and dry and waiting for water before low tide you would not get water till 2hrs after the push, u must off got it when it was nearly time to get out round the corner… are your whitebait weighting about 1/2lb each .. i was there yesterday and seen you picking bait out of all the tea leaves and crap didnt look much in it.i talked to a lot of locals down there today and you would of got more than doulbe what we all got yesterday down the front .. will be looking forward to asking the ones that fish down were we fish hpw much thay got… i now the the box netters got good catches up around 6-9lbs the last few days
