Glass Gear Follow Up From Bill O’Connor

Hi Joey,

Here’s a follow up photo for the glass buoy shot I sent you. This one shows the glass ball in the net bag used to hold the ball. This bag/ball assembly  would then be attached to one edge of a net to make it buoyant while the other end sunk in the water column to form an open seine. It’s pretty amazing to think about what these things went through when they were in use and that some actually survived the beating!  It’s also a pretty neat glimpse into the world before there was plastic.

Enjoy!
