I am still trying to figure out the blog. I tried to post a reply but have no ideas what happened
The answer to your question is could the sock net be made?
I don't think so because it is very fine netting, almost like silk. There is a short handle that is heavy duty. Without the handle the net would be useless in handling large koi.
I do have them available from my one supplier. They are $69.98 plus shipping.
I recently purchased one and sent it to a customer and he "loved it"
If there is enough interest, I would stock them and have them available on my shopping cart.
He also purchased a professional 28" net for netting large koi. The handle, sold separately telescopes from 4 to 8'.
We use both of the items here when handling large koi for shipping and moving them around from tank to ponds, and ponds to tanks (spawning time)
