Thank you Luca, the weather was hot and humid but no downpours as in other years.
Dan, one length of rope attached to the ring (the metal rim of a wooden wagon wheel) at each end with constrictor knots forms 2 legs of the bridle. At the midpoint of this rope I tied a sheet bend with a second length of the same rope. One end goes to the ring to make the third leg, the other end makes up the haul line. The minnow dip net on the table is rigged is in the same manner.
I have a third dip net about 2 feet in diameter done up the same to show children how the large net worked. Children are encouraged to pick up the pole attached to the haul line. I love to see the smiles on their face when they realize they have caught a fish in the net (a fish shaped painted bit of wood)
After many years of rough handling the knots haven't loosened. Tony
