Ch:ek is a lift net used for fishing by submerging to a certain depth of the water and then lifting out vertically. In this equipment, the corners of a square shaped net are attached to four strings and the strings are tied together on the top of bamboo pole. The bamboo pole is used as a lever to put the net into the water and lift it up. This kind of net is used in deep water by most communities of Assam.
