Go down to the local 'Haberdashery' shop and snoop through the tule etc, you can buy it by the metre (yard). The lace section has some interesting stuff, especially in the underwear laces, you will get some strange looks, when you tell them you make fishing lures (oh yeah, sure) but it is worth the risk.pete

The problem I've noted is the wire mesh in about 1/2 inch is the smallest wire mesh that would come from a net source. If you have a local hardware store Est. 1920, you may find what your looking for.

There's an art store named Dick Blick that has this. Where are you located. They did have a web site. I haven't been there in a while. Good Luck Doug
