Summary

Summary

In the years since Larry Chowning's book, Harvesting the Chesapeake: Tools and Traditions, was published, the author has fielded many questions from readers about why he didn't include a particular fishery or tradition in his collection. To answer those requests, Chowning has created a second volume. The thirty chapters in this comprehensive work encompass a wide range of subjects, from the finfishing industry at the mouth of the Chesapeake to the hoop net fishery for catfish on the Sassafras River. In addition to the details of the fisheries, Chowning includes some carefully illustrated how-to chapters on shaft-tongs, clam rakes, and rope bow fenders.
