A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, the Bug Catching Net is received early in the game from the Bug-Catching Kid in Kakariko Village, as long as Link has at least one Bottle when he talks to him. The young hero can use the Bug Catching Net to catch Bees and Fairies in Empty Bottles. Unlike other games in the series, in A Link to the Past, Link cannot swipe an Empty Bottle through the air to catch things, and as such, he must use the Bug Catching Net.
The Bug Net also appears in Skyward Sword, in which it is used to catch Insects that can be used as ingredients to upgrade Potions. The net can be purchased from Beedle's Air Shop. It can also catch Fairies, Tumbleweeds, and Chirris. The Bug Net is controlled similarly to the sword by moving and aiming with the Wii MotionPlus.
The Bug Net can be upgraded at the Scrap Shop to the Big Bug Net, which, as its name suggests, is larger and can therefore catch targets more easily.
