These Aluminum Seine Gill Net Fishing Float – 10 pieces measure about 4-5 inches long each. These aluminum seine gill net fishing floats were used for the commercial fisheries around the Great Lakes regions, but some were used on the west coast also. All of the ones we have for sale came from the Great Lakes.
Fishing floats have been around since the 1840’s when Norway first began experimenting with glass floats. Around the 1920’s, metal floats began to replace glass as they were more durable and lasted a longer time.
