Submission to the Post from the Norsknailpounder
One of the readers of this blog has sent me a couple of great photos from his glass float collection. This reader and collector has within the last three years, built one of the finest European glass fishing float collections in the world, and it is a pleasure to add his submissions to the blog. Thank you for your permission to publish your photos.
The photo of the picture window with hanging floats, shows a number of beautiful net line markers. These strung-together combinations of floats were also installed between the buoy markers, along the gillnet's headline, in order to keep "sag" out of the net in calm waters.
