1 Claim.

This invention relates to fish net floats, the primary object of the invention being to provide a float having means whereby the float may be secured to the usual binding rope of a fishermans net, in such a way that the float will not rotate with respect to the net, thereby insuring against the float becoming twisted or entangled with the net.

Another object of the invention is to provide means for securing a float to the binding rope of a fishermans net in supporting the float in spaced relation with the net, providing a clearance for the usual hooks which are used in drawing in the net.

With the foregoing and other objects in view, which will appear as the description proceeds, the invention resides in the combination and arrangement of parts and in the details'of construction hereinafter described and claimed, it being understood that changes in the precise embodiment of the invention herein described, may be made within the scope of what is claimed, without departing from the spirit of the invention.

Referring to the drawings:

Figure 1 is an elevational view of a float constructed in accordance with the invention, and illustrating the float as secured to the binding rope of a fishermans net.

Figure 2 is a plan thereof.

Figure 3 is an end elevational view of the float.

Figure 4 is a sectional view taken on line 4-4 of Figure 1.

Figure 5 is a longitudinal sectional view taken on line 5-5 of Figure 2.

Figure 6 is an elevational view of a modified form of the invention.

Figure '7 is an end elevational view as illustrated in Figure 6 of the drawing.

Figure 8 is a sectional view taken on line 8-8 of Figure 6.

Figure 9 is an elevational view partly in section, illustrating a further modified form of the invention.

Figure 10 is an end elevational view of the modified form of the invention as illustrated by Figure 9 of the drawings.

Figure 11 is a vertical sectional View taken on line ll-H of Figure 9.

Referring to the drawings in detail, the body portion of the float is indicated generally by the reference character 5, and as shown, the body portion is hollow in construction, the ends thereof being slightly tapered and rounded as at 6, to offer the minimum amount of resistance when the nets equipped with the float, are being pulled through the water. Recesses 8' are provided at the ends of the body portion, defining web portions 1'.

Eyes indicated at I are formed in the web portions 1 formed at the ends of the body portion, and are slightly ofiset with respect to a line drawn longitudinally through the center of the body portion, as clearly shown by Figure 1 of the drawings. The cords 8 are extended through the eyes 1, and constitute the means for securing the floats to the binding rope of the usual fishing net. In connection with the securing cords 8, it might be stated that these cords are of lengths to support the floats in spaced relation with the binding rope of the net, which in the present showing is indicated at 9, so that the usual hooks employed in gripping the rope to pull the net in, will have ample clearance, and will not engage the float to defeat the retrieving operation of the net.

These cords 8 also extend inwardly, and are tied to the rope 9 in such a way that the float cannot rotate to wind the securing cords 8 thereon.

The float as illustrated by Figure 6 of the drawings, is substantially the same in construction as the float shown in Figure 1 of the drawings, with the exception that the ends of the float are rounded as at Ill, the tapered structure at the ends of the float being eliminated in this form of the invention.

As shown by Figure 9 of the drawings, the body portion of the float which is indicated at H, is formed with extensions 52 disposed adjacent to one edge of the body portion, the extensions having grooves for the reception of the securing cord M by means of which the float is secured to the binding rope 9 of the fishing net.

In this form of the invention, the body portion is also held in predetermined spaced relation with the binding rope 9, to prevent the body portion from rotating to cause the net to become tangled.

From the foregoing it will be seen that due to the construction shown and described, I have provided an exceptionally light float, and one which will be secured to the fishing net in such a way that the float will not rotate with respect to the fishing net, and ample clearance will be provided between the float and net to permit the usual pulling-in hooks to grip the rope, without danger of striking the float to damage the float or prevent the operation. of the pulling-in hooks.

What is claimed is: line drawn longitudinally through the body por- A float adapted to be secured to a fish net, tion, and said eyes adapted to receive securing comprising a body portion, said body portion cords whereby the float may be secured to a having recesses formed at its ends defining web fish net. portions formed with eyes, the recesses and web 5 IRVING L.
