Nets, Fishing Nets Made in Puerto Lopez, Ecuador #AtoZChallenge

Fishing net artisans working in Puerto Lopez, Ecuador

As you walk around Puerto Lopez, you will likely find someone working on a fishing net. One of the steps in creating a new net is to string rope between two posts and attach the net. As one long section is completed, the rope is moved along and retied, finished portion on the ground.

The fish market I wrote about recently (see it here) is behind the guys in the first photo. In the second, they are working along a river walk 5 minutes from the fish market.
