a fishing-net.

From: Public Domain Greek-English lexicon by John Jeffrey Dodson (2010)

HELPS Lexicon excerpt

4522 sagēnē – a weighted-net, drawn in as a drag-net.  This "drag-net" has cork-floats on its upper side and small lead weights along the bottom.  When thrown out from a boat it forms a large semicircle and then is drawn in to enclose fish (cf. Mt 13:48).  4522/sagēnē ("drag-net") is a much larger net than the usual "casting net" (293/amphíblēstron).
