Salmon fishing-net made of cord, with a feathered handle and horn and bone rings.
- Curator's comments
- During a visit on 23rd October 2012, Gerry Oleman demonstrated that this is a dip net, held in a river by its handle, the bottom weighted with horn and bone rings and the outside on a wooden hoop (missing from this example). When a fish entered the net, the net would be pulled out of the water, the fish caught inside. This form of fish was prevalent until well into the twentieth century on the Fraser and Thompson River system.
