I remember getting scoldings from kupuna when a picture of a Hawaiian using throw net was used in a depiction of ancient fishing styles. She told me that throw net fishing was introduced to the islands by Japanese, and that Hawaiians hanai-ed the method into modern fishing methods. She challenged me to find any ancient description of throw net fishing, and to date I have not been able to find such. Certainly someone here can provide the details on when the practice of throw net fishing was introduced into the islands. I did find this description (see this link)

Fantastic, I just saw this.  I have a small eye net that is double for the reason that it needed to fold inward after it's tossed.  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. 

John Clark is a good friend of mind, I was so proud of him for publishing his passion while he was the deputy fire chief.

Mahalo e Kaohi!
