We use large hose clamps (like on radiator hoses) to clap nets onto PVC
tubing (the codeend), etc. using a thin rubber gasket to prevent any
leakage. We've found that araldite, superglue, etc. either reacts adversely
with the mesh, or just become brittle and crack off the surface you are
trying to adhere to. This has been sucessful with 250 and 63 um nets.
