The gill net works by catching fish from its gills. As the current sweeps the fish towards the net the fish have no choice but to pass through it and get caught by their gills, as the fish start to try to get out, they only make it worse by getting tangled up in the net.
The size of the gill net is up to you to choose, since different bodies of water require diffrence sized nets. So in this instructable there is shown a small section of netting, but it is the bases for any sized net you wish to make.
Step 1: Materials
There are many options of cord to make a gill net, but the best options are nylon type cords because these work better in water and last longer. Paracord can be used for the whole project as it can be used for the suspension line and the inner cords can be used for the construction of the net.
-Scissors or knife.
To burn off any ends.
Step 2: How to Start Making the Gill Net.
To start the actual netting, start by attaching several lines( roughly an inch apart) to the suspension line,by doubling them over, and tying them, using a girth hitch knot.
Step 3: Making the Net
Step 4: Second Row of the Net
You should now have all the vertical lines tied in pairs, with a single line hanging at each end. To start the second row with the first line, tie it to the second, then the third to the fourth, and so on.
Step 5: Finishing It Off
Step 6: To Set It Up
In the case of the river, the fish will swim along the current and right into the net net. While the one in the sea works by, when the waves flow in and out the current drags the fish into the net.
