My mono cast net has a large tear and no longer opens up correctly. I have no idea how to repair it. Anyone have any ideas?

take pieces of mono run them vertically and match where ht other linesrun and just burn it on. then run mono horizantally and burn it at all places whereh they meet. this should work never happend to me but if it did i would do this. if it doesnt work what else can you do besides buy a new one? try that and hopefully it works. good luck and tell me how it does..dan

I keep patching mine up with 30# ande. I'm sure if you do a search on google you can find the right way to mend a net. I just take a piece of mono, tie a double overhand knot then weave it through mesh a few inches then tie another one, and keep repeating.

I'm with Dan. Buy a new one. Figure what your times worth per hour at work. You're losing money. Then look at how few hours you get to fish on the weekends. Don't waste it!
Spend that hour fishing not mending a $15 bait net with a $10 spool of Ande line
