Surrounded by towering mountains and accessible only by boat or helicopter, the community of Grey River only had a total of 60 inhabitants living there at the time, including a cat and a handful of chickens. At the age of 15, Hugh stepped onto a boat where he then saw things in a new light – literally seeing a lightbulb for the very first time.
In 1978, Hugh became a certified Navy dockyard rigger before working as a commercial rigger in the Arctic for 8 years. When it comes to nets and ropes, there isn’t a problem Hugh hasn’t seen or solved. Spending years honing his skills through trial and error, Hugh has spent his life solving and mastering the subtle nuances of nets and ropes. Always a Newfoundlander at heart, Hugh chose the name Grey River Netting to pay homage to his hometown roots and the community he once called home, Grey River.
Grey River Netting is one of the few companies in the world with the technical skills to create highly custom and advanced products from netting, rope, and tarps. When it comes to net making, there’s no certificate or how-to available to master the art. Creating highly custom and advanced products requires the right eye, meticulous mind and years of experience under the fingers. Today, Hugh imparts his wealth of knowledge, values and one-of-a-kind set of skills to the next generation, teaching them the true value of craftsmanship, design and quality and ensuring his craft lives on in the world – one knot at a time.
