I also like to angle the pegs away from the side you expect to get the rabbits, this way the rabbits run well onto the net and start to get tangled before they hit the back of it.............if that makes sense.

I worked as a professional fisherman for many years i quickly learned how to rigg nets to the best advantage. I then took the princilpes involved in rigging nets for bottom living fish (sole ,place etc) and applied them to catching rabbits.
The meathod i use for my longnets is an adapted version of a danish rigg where the headline is tied in and the leadline just runs through the bottom selvage. If you are in any doubt about the catching powers of that type of rigging i suggest you look at this.
I made him 200yds of net in various lengths. He later told me that he had used the nets alongside his late fathers and had not lost a rabbit out of them. Where as his fathers traditional running nets had lost quite a few rabbits.
