Porcelain, Engraved with Interior Glaze

This pictograph of shows a man holding a dip net. Dip netting was a fishing technique used by the St’át’imc to catch considerable quantities of salmon in the Fraser River. Standing on a land outcrop or a wooden platform, fishermen would lower the net into the river narrows, where the currents are strong. The mouth of the net would then be closed, trapping the fish that had swam inside, and hauled out of the river.

Typically Leach includes the representations of the salmon and the river alongside the fisherman to depict a full scene.
