Fishing net with cork floats which were attached by using organic sisal rope. The net would drop down into the water to catch available fish. The corks would float on top of the water. The mesh size of the net would determine the type of fish caught. The size of the cork would remain the same. If the net had bigger openings then more corks were added.
