Fishing In Gold
Photograph - Photography
An old fisherman pulls in his gill net in the early glow of the rising sun in Hampstead, North Carolina. The fishing capital of the world...spot fishing that is and home to the World's only known "Spot" Festival.
In many parts of the world, fisherfolk have been making their own nets for generations! It's an enjoyable and productive pastime ... I learned the art from old-timers, who taught me to "knit" a net ... that is, to build a series of "meshes" to create an overall pattern. I also learned that netmaking can be a great family activity ... especially when everyone keeps in mind the delicious fresh fish that will soon be landed in those interlocking strands and brought to the dinner table.
