    sonar of it`s day!  :cheers:
    its a feeling wire, used to find the herring shoals and the density of the shoal. the ring netters used them. :cheers:
    One seen in use for that very purpose on this short video.

    Used a lot at the banks & broon heid when the herring were spawning & tight on the bottom
    A very cold job on  a winters night & sore on the hands, some fishermen were experts with the wire
    there must be a ton of lead weights lying on the banks.
