widely used in the river, lake and sea


Gill net is an ancient fishing technique that has been around for centuries. It’s so light and easy to use, you can do it with just your hand! Gill nets work well in river or lake but they’re also useful on the open sea if there are certain species of fish like tuna which prefer deep water

The depth range of this fishing line is 5m – 200 meters. It’s perfect for catching all sorts fish, be it on top water or bottom depths!

How it works

 Gill nets are typically sewn together and can be over 5 km long. When dropped into water, they form an effective barrier for fish to swim through with their heads but not bodies.

If a larger species tries struggling or escaping from this mesh enclosure-which would make any movement difficult due slip behind its gills–the threads will simply pull tighter until escape is impossible!
