A Dragger’s Net Spread Out For Mending

Here is a dragger’s net spread out so that it can be worked on.  The orange balls act as floats at the top of the net as it gets towed through the water the boyancy of the orange balls keep the opening of the net as wide as possible to catch the most fish efficiently.  Along the bottom you see the rubber rollers which make up the bottom part of the net as it gets towed behind the boat.

In this post I explain how dragging works with arrows pointing out various parts of the net and how it all works- click here
