Fishing ropes


For some reasons, I always like the colors you can find around in the harbor, being the boats, or like here fishing ropes and nets.

Are the pots for lobsters/crayfish? I never knew that they had these in the Netherlands!

I too like harbours. There is always something to look at and admire. Lovely photo.

Nice ropes & photo... made in Scheveningen harbor? Just curious.

This photo is of course taken in Scheveningen harbor, I always like to hang around for colored photos!

Kris, I wouldn't know what those baskets are up for. Lobsters are a culinary specialty in Zeeland, and they may come from a fishing boat moored in Scheveningen.

Lezard, I posted a picture yesterday with exactly the same baskets, in Newhaven harbour (Edinburgh, Scotland)! They're called lobster or crab creels.

Lobster pots I'd call them - they photograph well piled up like that - took a photo of some a while back at Paignton in Devon - not published it anywhere yet.

And as Dido says - in Scotland they are called creels.

Love the look and texture of the nets!

Fishes caught with the help of Fishing Ropes are costly. Not all types of fishes are caught, only specific species of fish like Tuna, Sea, Bass, Shark, etc can be caught. You can get such ropes from Axiom Cordages which is the leading exporter and manufacturer of Ropes.
