Japanese glass fishing floats are popular collectors’ items. They were once used by fishermen in many parts of the world to keep their nets afloat. These Japanese hand made fishing floats were made and used by fishermen from Hokkaido Island of northern Japan and are real authentic floats. In Japan, glass fishing floats are being replaced by plastic and polystyrene making authentic glass fishing floats highly collectible. These floats are from my own personal collection which I have collected over the past 40 years. Each float is bubble wrapped and packed securely.

A commercial fisherman gets approximately 2 years use from a fish net before acquiring a new one. The used net is then stored in old gear piles or shanties. I reclaim the nets and cut, clean, and package it myself. It is a long, tedious process and requires a crew of helpers, as a commercial net is approx. 1500 ft long, 50 ft wide and weighs over 4000 lbs. This is quality net made from super strong nylon and is not like the cheaper cotton net that you see in party stores. This netting is great for nautical themed parties, creative interior designs, outdoor patio & garden use, sea life & shell displays, restaurant decor, kid's rooms and wall hangings. It can also be used in seafood restaurants, churches, schools, and waterparks. The possibilities are endless.
