I treasure this net because I just lost my dad, and too, the neet was given to him my a Japanese fisherman. My brother doesn't want it because it is illegal. I'm going to put plastic hibiscus on it. I want to keep it for the younger generationt o see, and document their thoughts upon examination.

Hawaiians’ ingenious fishing methods were not limited to nets, baits, and nuts, but even included the use of medicinal plants that temporarily poisoned fish and made them float to the surface. Imagine, such a simple method of harvesting fish that was safe for eating.. Awesome Ancestors.. My Tutuman Hamana Kalili of Laie, helped bring back the Hukilau to Laie waters..
