Oblong bag of knotted netting used by men in fishing from canoes. The bag opens along one of the long sides. A flexible stick is fastened along each side of the opening. The fisherman in the bow of the canoe holds one of the sticks in each hand. When a school of small fish appears near the surface, he stretches the net open and plunges it, opening downward, into the water among the fishes. With a quick movement he then closes the bag by bringing one stick over the other and lifts his haul into the canoe.
