But, canuk is correct. Wet snow will pull it down like no ones business.
However, it would make an excellent temporary top for your runs, or summer only top. You could use it over a "only for summer" pasture.
Except coons..... Will you have those?
Stop teasing her Alaskan...hee hee... Recall she likes pretty and used fishing nets, oh that don't have me thinking too pretty!
Anyone that has never smelt a used fishing net has no idea what they have in store for themselves. Breathe deeply, eh.
Heck, I put myself thru college and university working summers cleaning salmon at a fish cannery for union wages...I LOVE cleaning the catch and I do have a VERY strong stomach but even I can say, "Yikes!" to a used fishing net in my bird yard.
Over thirty years ago, we were helping a friend that had a rented storage unit (northern end of Van Isle) and asked them..."What's that smell?" Fisheries and Oceans had rented the end storage bay for confiscated fishing nets--they could seize your boat, trailer, truck to haul trailer and yer GEAR...even in Port Hardy where it rarely gets much past 25C in summer...holey Hannah...what a reek.
Maybe there is some secret to how to sterilize fishing nets that have been used...but I am thinking bleach would make them brittle and not sure what would be strong enough to get rid of the stench without destroying the nets! My instant knee jerk is that burning would be good....
I know by hanging up such a sweet welcoming calling card, you would be attracting flies, helping maggots get thru their life cycles, teaching ratz to climb better than they already do, and I am betting the very first black bear will swim the Straight to come visit the lovely hanging air freshener.
"Smells like fish...where's the fish...me luv the fishies...oh lookit, a chook, num...a duck...yum...and on and on!"
