Annotation
A thin plaque. An arc-shaped cutout is made on one end, and a slit on the other, tapering end in the form of a shuttle with a thin rod in the middle. The Udege people began to use nets for fishing relatively late, in the late 19th century; they were borrowed from the Russians. The maritime and Samagir Udege began to weave nets as an occupation, thus making their living. Nets were woven from nettle threads.
