The High Flier Mist Net Support System is designed by bird ringers for bird ringers. It allows you to operate one, two or three mist nets at any height from 450mm above the ground up to a maximum height of 7.8 metres. This increased height not only helps to improve catch rates at existing sites but can also make mist netting possible in locations that weren’t previously viable.
The High Flier is constructed from 30mm diameter aluminium poles which are both strong and lightweight. The system is easy to erect; with practice two people can assemble it in around 20 minutes. The strong guy ropes provided clip quickly onto the poles which means that no complicated knot tying is needed. If required, the system can be left in place indefinitely.
It is compatible with all normal mist nets which are clipped onto the sliding net carriers. A cleverly designed shock cord link keeps tension correct and ensures that nets don’t sag. It also helps with minor variations in net length. A pulley system lets you lower one net at a time to a height which is comfortable for extraction. (If operating the net alone it may be necessary to do this in several stages, lowering one end of the net at a time).
The High Flier can be carried and stored in the strong carrying bag (included). When packed away it measures 2.25m in length and weighs less than 12kg. Everything required to set up the system, including guy ropes and pegs, are included with the High Flier. All you need to provide is the mist net(s).
Available in three sizes which are suitable for one, two or three mist nets.
