That looks like what I need.This is the model I bought. https://www.westcoastnetting.com/k18t-5/ 5” mesh rope bound.
I have a fence around my pond that I redid leaving posts up about 8-9’ tall, hung Pulleys near tops of posts, ran black cord through pulleys under net and pulled the net tight, bringing the sides down tight to top of fence And tied of to eyes. Here are some close ups of it....

Thank you, I appreciate it....I'd like it to hold up. I'm thinking of having it 6-7 feet over the pond and having it up from Spring till Fall. Once Fall hits, I'll use my fine mesh net to trap block small debris.....then I switch over to the hideous pool solar cover over the winter.@Tula The netting that JW got was a lot finer than mine. It did not last here, totally ripped apart. I got mine from the same company but a thicker thread. It would never have lasted over my big pond. I had it over the 1000 gallon stock tank.
Let me find the number for you, I do have it posted here somewhere.
Mine is never taken down, I pull it over if I am wading in the pond to work on the lilies. A lot of small spiders like to use the netting as homes. I don't care to have them falling on me.I will need to replace mine in the next year. It is starting to break down in spots but has been up 24/7-365 since I got it.
