Fishing is an ancient activity which mankind has employed for at least 40,000 years. Today the fishing industry employs millions of people worldwide, and recreational fishing--fishing for fun as well as food--entertains millions more. One of the basic necessities for casual sport fishing is a fishing net, by which means an angler can safely capture the fish she or he has hooked. A model from the mid-twentieth century is typical of the form.
