Nets were staked at low tide


You can still see the net posts at low tide if you look from the harbour wall out to sea


This machine was used to make the "snoods" at the end of the net


The net posts were driven in using a "maul" cut from the branch and root of a tree.




Traps made from willow were laid across the River Parrett and used to catch salmon 


To get across the treacherous mud a" mud horse" was used 


Some fishermen used to row slowly up the River Parrett and net salmon as they came up to breathe in the muddy water
