Winter storage and gillnet production

During the winter, the gillnets are kept on stands a bit above the ground, so that rats, mice and other animals will not come close to them. The following Spring, when it is time to put the nets in the lake again, they are pulled out on the fields surrounding the farm, reviewed and repaired.

 

We manufacture all the nets ourselves, the material is purchased, then cut and sewn according to the specific conditions at the place where they will placed to catch fish. A large gillnet takes several months for two handy people to manufacture.
