Frank J. Wilstach, comp.  A Dictionary of Similes.  1916.
 
John Spencer (Things New and Old; or, A Store-house of Similes, 1658)
 
  The World is not unfitly compared to a fishing-net, the end of the world to be the drawing up of the nets. While the nets are down, there is nothing said to be caught; for the nets may break, and the fish escape: But at the end of the world, when the nets are drawn up, it will then evidently appear, what every man hath caught.  1
