we pulled apart a bath scruchie and we got about 12ft of netting, perfect for our models, we made a twin-rig out of them.
we also get netting from this company http://www.modellingtimbers.co.uk/23.html (3rd item down is the trawl netting)

i used plain net curtains look around you will find it in all sizes and it behaves like a real net just make sure you ask the lady indoors :):)

514hi ray i used mosquito net that people use over cots etc it is white but i sprayed mine with car paint green and orange for the codend it slightly stiffens the net but not much at all. i have found you dont have to drive the model as hard to keep the net in shape.
