NETS FOR FISHING


NETS FOR FISHING. The principal are the drag-net, the flew, and the casting-net; for the DragNet, see that article. The flew is of two kinds, the one for drawing, the other to be placed either as a stop to a drag-net, or to be set and left in a pond or river to intercept the fish. When fishing with flews, the common practice of disturbing the water by poles, &c. is very absurd. Pike, tench, and perch will strike the flew more readily when the water is quite still, and carp hide themselves under the banks at the least noise. The casting-net is thrown from a person's shoulder, and requires great skill and dexterity in tlte person who casts it, which can only be acquired by long practice; the great art is to spread it wide, and yet not throw it high in the air. If not thrown wide, so that the leads may form a large circle, few fish will be surrounded by it; and if thrown high, which is the usual method employed by the unskilful to obtain a wide spread, the fish will be alarmed, and quit the place. If the pond is muddy, the net should be suffered to remain some minutes before it is drawn out, that the fish may rise; for carp, especially when first alarmed, are apt to strike into the mud. Mr. Daniel (from whose valuable work this article is extracted) observes, that a piece of crumb of bread, put into the stomach of either carp or tench, suspected to be tainted with mud, will absorb all the disagreeable taste, but should be taken out before they are sent to table.

Harewood, Harry. A Dictionary of Sports. London: T. Tegg and son, 1835
