Lost Property topic titles should begin with either [LOST] or [FOUND] and should include the State and/or location and the item description. Eg, [LOST] TAS, Head Torch, Crater Lake.

For Sale topics should be advertising only one item, with seven new topics per person per week permitted to encourage this (eg. One topic for selling a sleeping bag, and a second topic for a back pack).

When your topic is resolved / no longer needed, you are required to:
(a) post, to indicate that the item is sold - preferably by editing the title of the topic (edit the first post) and put a [SOLD] in front of the title;
(b) lock your topic using the popup menu and button at the bottom right of the topic page. You cannot lock other people's topics, and only moderators can unlock topics.
If you need help with the above, you may report your own post asking for assistance.

For Sale / Wanted topics will expire after 3 months if there are no replies by the OP (original poster) in that time.
Lost / Found topics will expire after 6 months if there are no replies by the OP in that time.
Locked and expired topics will be moved to the "Sold, Claimed and closed" sub-forum by the moderation team, contact a moderator if you wish to have a topic restored.

Looking for about a square meter (ideally, will take anything) of white noseeum-grade bug netting. Not the basic grid stufone goyf but the real fine stuff for keeping out sandflys.

Any got any lying about?

Sandflies are attracted to dark colours, esp the NZ ones, so maybe that's why he wants white?

Having survived about 100 days in NZ west coast sandfly territory, I think I've got it pretty well down pat, but my specific aim is fly fishing...dark pants, to keep them around your legs, pale top, black headnet if trying to Polaroid trout through it ( white provides too much reflection to see through) pale hat,home made Lycra socks and gauntlets and Lycra gloves to keep the little buggers off your legs and wrists and hands.

Maybe the OP can elaborate about potential use?

OK and I didn't know that about sandflies
Using fine black inside coarse white would work because I use that sometimes when I remember to take the hat tent
