Introduction to Fishing Gear Technology

Fishing gear is the equipment used by fishermen when fishing. Almost any equipment or gear used for fishing can be called fishing tackle. Some examples are hooks, lines, sinkers, floats, rods, reels, baits, lures, spears, nets, gaffs, traps, waders and tackle boxes.

Determination of hanging ratio of nets, buoyancy and sinking

When netting is attached to lines, it should be longer than the lines so as to have a proper looseness. This excess length is expressed as a percentage of the stretched netting.

The formula for figuring the hanging ratio is stretched length of netting minus length of netting, divided by length of netting. Ratio % = (str length of netting less rope length)/str length of netting).

The shape of mesh is greatly influenced by the hanging ratio. Multiply the stretch mesh size times the number of mesh deep times the % height to get the total height of net.

Multiply the stretch mesh size times the number of mesh long times the % length to get the total length of net. The following shows the heights and lengths of the mesh for different hanging ratios.
