Fishing gear

Cultural Identity
Fishing gear
The abundance of fishing gear, such as nets, pots, floats, storage boxes etc., in fishing places is an important influence on place character. In some places fishing gear is neatly stored in crates or racks, but in other places it is piled up on the quayside or beach.
The presence of fishing gear adds to the authenticity of the place and contributes to a particular sense of place associated with fishing.
It’s like crab pots, every photograph of any Cornish fishing village there’s crab pot in the middle of it

They [tourists] love seeing pots and nets on the quayside
