    Interesting frame design asemery. Some people here use a flat sided design to work bottom better. I use round design because regulations limt size to 5 foot in diameter so a circle maximizes area. I also wait for incoming tides. The salmon school up at the mouths and come in with current going thier direction on the surface. I clean up using this method but I love all the theorizing we fisherman share while fishing. It seems we not only share knitting nets but also know the value of a good hat for catching fish.

    Here is another frame that was once used for the annual shad run on the Susquahanna River in Pennsylvania. I got an e-mail from a gentleman who had seen the netting I had done for a historical group. He has a similar antique frame and needed netting. The opening of the frame is 53" x 33". Eye screws on the indide diameter of the frame facilitate the hanging of the net.

    I made the netting from 6 ply linen thread (38 lb breaking strength). 1" wide gauage. 30 meshes at bottom, 110 meshes at top. bottom 4 rows are double twine. The top 3 rows are double as well using 1 1/4" gauge. Overall length not on frame - 47". I sent the netted bag by mail and was sent back the picture of the net on the frame.

    I hope to see the net on display to take a better picture. Tony

    Great pictures. Missing it all reading. Went dip netting on the Chitina from the shore...that was a harrowing experience. My cousins had at least 50 pounds on me so they handled it well. I got a hold of a medium sized silver that did it's best to show me more of the swift moving river. I decided then to leave it to them. Several Silvers and a few Kings in about 3 hours time. Love the Russian River as well. I imagine the area has changed a bit. Left in '89 after 4 years there. Just wanted to thank yall for the wonderful photos.

    easiest way would be to make a breakwater and put nets into the gap
    -even the most fish handi-capped could make that work

    Dipnetting the Copper River is a rush. Dangerous, tedious, intense, exciting, sleep deprivation, bears wandering the banks, buckets of $$$ for gas and supplies. But it's worth it. Like someone else said, knowing how to dipnet is a good skill to have for when it all goes down eventually. Hooks&Bullets up here has some decent videos showing you the ropes of dipnetting and whatnot. Worth checking out. Can't seem to post the link, but if you google How to Dipnet at for Salmon at Chitina you should find them at the Alaska Fish + Game site.
