Learning fishing nets spinning and maintenance used to be a prerequisite for every fisherman who starts his work in Mosul city, however, the development of the industry and the introduction of automatic spinning, contributed to the lessening in the numbers of spinning professionals. The elderly fisherman, Muhammad Hussein, has been spinning fishing nets for decades, believing that this career requires high precision, which is mastered only by the elderly. Fishing nets spinning is one of the ancient handicrafts that flourished in the past and is still alive till this day, as Hussein stated and adding that this industry needs great effort, patience, and endurance, besides that its raw materials are high in cost.
