Hello, I have knitted acouple hoop net bodies but am having trouble with the throats. When I decrease meshes like I think I should to get the taper I usually wind up with a throat that is VERY short and basically just a flat end. Is there any fomula or surefire way of figuring out how to get a throat a certain length with a certain size hole in the end?

The most recent net I made I wound up with a screwy funnel so I inverted it and clove hitched it to the hoop to make the tail and I inverted the tail to form the funnel but it was a bit baggy I guess because there were no decrease in the number of meshes. I think it will work but this method will not work for my next net that is a 10' long hoop net that is to have two throats in it like the trap seen here

Besides that I feel it is important to learn the correct way to do something.

Thanks for any insight.

Jann's Netcraft has a nice booklet showing how to make a turtle trap that has funnels like the catfish trap in your link

The trick in making the funnel is to do it gradually as I did in this minnow trap
