The House of Fishing

How the fishermen’s terms and tools have changed during a period of 100 years.

In Bagenkop you will find an exhibition, which many volunteered hands have spent more than 4000 hours through the winter of 2014/15 at building in order to tell some of the local history. Set aside a good amount of time if you want to see all the objects at display and hear all of the good stories. Three full sized models of old fishing cabins tell the story of how the fishermen’s terms and tools have changed during a period of 100 years. In the exhibition are many beautiful model ships of which some are built by a local fisherman. They have been brought out of the hobby room in his basement, so we can all admire the many details and wonder how many winter days have been spent on finishing a ship. On the walls hang numerous different nametags from an abundance of fishing boats collected by local fiery souls through the years.
