Pound Net

| View Cart ⇗ | Info

This net employs a ‘Leader’, ‘Heart’, ‘Fore Bay’, and ‘Pound’. Each of these apparatus are constructed with a fence 15 to 18 feet deep. The Heart resembles the figure of the same name, and is placed so that the Leader passes into the notch a few feet. The Fore Bay (often omitted) is a second heart-shaped enclosure built on from the point of the heart. The Pound is a large circular net covering the bottom and sides of the enclosure into which there is only one entrance from the Fore Bay or Heart. This illustration shows the Leader at right, the Heart in the middle, and the Pound at left.
