Description On Lummi Island, Washington in the Puget Sound a unique method of fishing for salmon so still practiced called reefnetting. It's an old native american way to catch salmon by building an artificial reef out of ropes and plastic grass. The fishermen stand in towers with Polarized sunglasses and have to see the fish come into the net in order to catch them. When the fish come into the net they yell 'give 'er hell' and up comes the net and the fish are hand hauled into the live hold.
