Here’s a request from Jackie Manning:
Subject: Bristol Bay Double Ender – net
We have a questions concerning a net we are putting in the Bristol Bay Double Ender that will be on exhibit in the new museum. We have a net that was used for beach seining that he thought would be similar to what was used in the Bristol Bay Double Enders. Steve believes he spoke with you about this awhile back. We are trying to find someone locally who could help us coil the net for exhibit and we are hoping you can tell us if a beach seining net was coiled the same way as a net used in a BBDE.
Attached is a photo of the net we are putting on display.
