Gill Nets

Post by WestCoastSurvival » Tue Aug 21, 2012 6:04 am

Just wondering how many people have some gill netting stashed away for after SHTF? It will make a world of difference for fishing, you can set it up and come back later or have a person on either side of a creek dragging the netting sifting the fish out as you go. Of course unless you have a commerical lisence don't get caught using one now.

I really enjoy fishing and do it very often, I have a cast net in my house, but im not very good at throwing it :( however i think is a very is a very useful but also very delicate tool, it usually getts broken easy, and ist really complicated to fix the holes, I usually take it to an expert

I have gill and caste both in my gear, I was also taught when I was young how to make in an emergency and mend them. In canada it is also good if you learn how to run out a gill net with a ice walker for under ice setting on frozen lakes or ponds.
Things I say are my opinion, which is like belly buttons everybody has one.
Anything I say is not meant to anger or offend just to encourage discussion between adults.

I sell them, you could also try some commercial fishing paces in your area might be able to get some used netting as well.

While I think you can buy them, at least in Ontario I think it is illegal to fish with them. So practice privately? XD. Or save it for the collapse of society.
