Whitebaiting camp (2 o 3)

Whitebaiting camp

A Māori whitebaiter holds a trap which looks to have been woven from flax, with a supplejack frame. This tapering net, with a wide mouth and narrow end, was the model that Europeans used. In the late 1800s many Māori adopted European scrim netting as an alternative to their labour-intensive traps.
