Hangin’ Net

My friend Jerry Rosell called me yesterday to let me know he and his dad were going to be hanging net.

Jerry’s dad, Paul Rosell (also a good friend) spends his winters commercial fishing for Spiny Dog Sharks.

Jerry helps his dad a few times a week when he is fishing or when he needs help with boat and net upkeep.

I was underdressed and not prepared for the cold weather, so I only stayed for about a half hour.

Hanging net is a really cool process.

Wish I could have been there a little longer to show more of the process, but these images should give you and idea of what goes into making a net.

I am hoping to ride out with Paul and Jerry next week to document them fishing together.

Now if only the weather will cooperate for calm seas…
