Location and Uses
A Link to the Past
In A Link to the Past, the Bug Catching Net is borrowed from a sick kid in Kakariko Village, as long as Link has at least one Bottle when he talks to him. It can be used to catch Bees and Fairies in empty Bottles. The Bug Catching Net can also be used to reflect Agahnim's magic bolts back at him.
The Bug Net can be purchased from Beedle's Air Shop for 50 Rupees in Skyward Sword. It can be used to catch Bugs used as ingredients for Potions. The Bug Net can also catch Fairies, Tumbleweeds, and Chirris. It is controlled similarly to the Sword by moving and aiming with the Wii MotionPlus. During the final boss battle, it can be used to temporarily distract Demise, as well as reflect his Skyward Strikes back at him.
The Bug Net can be upgraded to the Big Bug Net at the Scrap Shop, which is larger and can catch targets more easily.

A Link Between Worlds
In A Link Between Worlds, the Net can be obtained from the Bee Guy in Kakariko Village. It can be used to catch Fairies, Bees, Golden Bees, Apples, Green Apples, and Hearts, all of which can then be stored inside an empty Bottle. The Net can also be used to deflect Yuga Ganon's magic back at him during the final battle.
The Net can be upgraded to the Super Net by completing the Advanced course of the Treacherous Tower twice. The upgraded net can be used to damage enemies.
