Abstract
  • Fishing nets have been used for thousands of years by those who seek food from the sea or make their living by catching fish. In the early days suitable knots had to be devised before a net could be made. Its size was determined by the availability of suitable materials and by the time available to make by hand the twine and then braid the net. The introduction of net making machines about 100 years ago speeded up operations considerably and meant much bigger nets could be manufactured. However, many hours still had to be spent by fishermen washing the natural fibres, preserving them with tar or tannin and mending them to extend their useful life. When synthetic fibres were introduced in the l 9S0's nets of greater strength and longer life became available to fishermen, but despite these advantages modern nets still get damaged and have to be repaired by band. This paper is not meant to be a complete do-it-yourself course for beginners from -filling the needle onwards. Rather it is intended for practical fishermen starting off in a net fishery and is essentially a guide to mending and patching nets aboard Australian fishing boats.
