transparency map, white where the fence is and black where it isnt map that onto a material and you should be fine. You could probably do it with maya's default nodes bulge I think it is might do it if you rotate it 45 degrees.

Twistedragon, yes please send it to me. I have tried a few approaches, but none are realistic enough, I am trying to build a walkthrough and they just don't look real enough close up. Thanks for the suggestions though guys
