Arthur Rice at Kipukai throwing net, 1910.

WITH A THROW NET.

The many pictures below show Arthur Rice fishing with a throw net, one of the foremost fishermen using a throw net. These are pictures taken recently at Kipukai, Kauai.

GOING TO RETRIEVE THE NET.

RETURNING TO LAND WITH THE NET AND THE FISH CAUGHT.

[The newspapers don’t only contain words. After about 1900 there appear photos, and many like these  are much clearer in the original. There needs to be clear shots of the papers done. I almost could not make out some of the text in the top description!]

  1. My Great, Great,Great Grandfather started the Kipukai Plantation around 1887. His Name was Joseph (Kipukia} Fernandes. He Came From the Azores and the land was a gift from the native people…they called him Kipukia. It was taken from him by Spreckles sugar because he held no legal deed to the land.He than moved his Family mainland and became a horticulturalist at U C Berkeley.
