Fishing Nets

Fishing Nets

Well the poles for the nets really…

The tide here in Sandyhills bays is listed as the eighth fastest in the UK so you have to be careful not to be caught out when it comes rushing in. I believe the poles are used to support fishing nets for when the tide is flowing past here in the Solway. I might have this wrong, so please let me know if you have some knowledge and know how this system works.
