#578 ... The Net


...Not the net we usually deal with today ... but sometimes alot more productive in putting food on the table. Dragging a net along the beach at Waikanae to catch flounder. This drag produced one this time (you can see it in the receding wave, between the man's blackshorts and the seagull)... to go with the other two they already had. I have done this many times and it is usually a toss as to who gets the deep end ... as the net is dragged at right angles to the waterline. Flounder are a flat fish that swim close to the bottom so the net has weights on its lower edge to ensure they don't escape under the net
