So far in our series of collecting our own fish , we have covered the introduction, which outlines some basic things you need to do and know about before getting started. We also covered how to buy, build and use catch buckets the fish will be put into, then the collection nets you need to catch the fish. Now you need a hand net or two to scoop the fish in when they are in the collection net area. And nets can vary in sizes, shapes, and materials.
I am going to show you how to make a net and also a tool for making it. All you need: -a knife -a saw blade -a thread or a rope -an ice cream stick or a piece of wood -a flat piece of plastic or wood -anything that can be used as a hook a nail, a piece of wire etc. Did you use this instructable in your classroom? Add a Teacher Note to share how you incorporated it into your lesson.
All that is required is a net needle and some fishing line. I prefer to use tarred line as it is a little easier to manage and keep from unraveling while you tie your net. Netting needles come in a variety of sizes and you can even carve your own from a piece of wood. Some people just like to carve the netting needles as a hobby and have that down to a fine art with beautiful designs carved from exotic woods. Most folks just use plastic versions that come in a variety of sizes.
A fishing net is a net used for fishing. Nets are devices made from fibers woven in a grid-like structure. Some fishing nets are also called fish traps , for example fyke nets. Fishing nets are usually meshes formed by knotting a relatively thin thread.
