DRAG-NET. A large net put into a pond, and drawn from one end to the other by men on each side, to get out all the fish for the purpose of selecting the largest for stews, &c. and the smaller to stock other ponds. In a river, the net is to be drawn up against the stream or current, as this will extend the meshes, and not muddy the water.
