Commercial fishing did not occur at all in the Sollerö residents' household, but the fishing provided a valuable addition to the diet. In the oral storytelling tradition, it was emphasized that Siljansfisket was largely seine fishing. The seine fishing mainly concerned snoring and tinsel. The snipe played in the spring and was caught in large numbers. Bliktan (a species of vendace) used to go from midsummer until August. Later in the autumn, the gaze returned again. Flatbread with tinsel is still a delicacy here on the island.
A note from the early 20th century was 2 m deep and about 42 m long distributed on two arms. The notes had stitches in several sizes from 1-3 cm. Horns with wedged stones were used as the sink. The Sollerön note is called the "player note". It was a note with slats attached to it. Each slat was 50–60 cm long, 7–10 cm wide and 1 cm thick. The slats helped to make the net stand up in the water and keep the fish inside the net. Today, the slats are replaced with blocks of cellular plastic.
The seine is caught in open water and always towards land. It was the usual Sollerö boat that was used for sewing.
Around Sollerön and on many of the islets on the west side, there were many so-called music cities. On the southeastern shore of the island, the music cities were dense.
In modern times, in the late 20th century, every year the Siljan Championships in Notdragning were arranged with many seine teams from Nusnäs, Färnäs, Sollerön and other places around Siljan. A popular note town was here in Budsta where it still happens that villagers in Bråmåbo draw notes.
