Apart from hunting, fishing was important for the Nganasans, which was done in early spring, when herds of wild deer were going far north. Stake nets used to catch fish were 15 to 20 m long; the mesh size depended on the fish species. The top string was maintained afloat by wooden floats. Stones tied to purple willow hoops were used as weight leads. Abstract by I.A. Karapetova
