CALIFORNIA FISH AND GAME 185 AN OUTLINE OF FISHING GEAR' Bjl AV. Ti. SCOFIELD California State Fisheries Lahordlori/ Division of Fish and Game A visitor new to California is often confused by the many kinds of gear used in ocean fishing along onr coast. Not only is there variety in the fishing devices themselves but there is such diversity in names that the newcomer is led to believe there is more complexity than act- ually exists. Later on he learns that some of the English, Sicilian, Dalmatian and Portuguese names are merely duplications of terms applied to the same type of fishing gear. The confusion is still further reduced when he realizes that many of the devices are similar in the method by Avhich they are operated and that two or more fishing appli- ances may differ only slightly in construction according to the manner in which they are to be used. The different devices for catch- ing ocean fish may be grouped into related types according to use and it is the purpose here to present such an orderly ar- rangement in the hope that it w] aid somewhat in reducing the misleading complications in kinds and names of gear. A description of the different de- vices vnM be left to a later pub- lication in which we plan to give the characteristics of each kind of gear and'to provide a glossary of terms used in con- nection with ocean fishing oper- ations. The outline here presented does not include a number of unusual kinds of gear used in foreign countries. For example, it makes no provision for the splash board used in connection with the Chinese trick of luring fish out of the water and into the fishing boat. It does, how- ever, include a few illegal fish- ing devices occasionally attempt- ed by an optimist before court fines dampened his enthusiasm. 1 Submitted for publication, January. 1938.. Fig. 68.
