Working On A Dragger’s Net

If you look under the black circular rollers you can see the net has been damaged.  It’s hanging there in shards.  Looks like the boys have a lot of mending to do.  No fun, no fun at all.  Sometimes a dragger will risk going over some rough or jagged rocky bottom to try and find some fish and the result is a damaged net.  Sometimes it can pay big dividends, sometimes you an end up with huge tears in the net.  I’m not saying that is what happened here, but there is definetly damage to repair here.  Not exactly the best of weather to have to do this kind of work.
