Description "Days of Salmon Traps and Fish Pirates; Tall Tales from the Fishing Grounds of Yesteryear" - VCR video tape
"The Days of Salmon Traps and Fish Pirates is the story of fishing pioneers in the Pacific Northwest and Alaska, and of the most efficient--and controversial--type of fishing gear ever devised, the trap. Listen to the last of the trap men as they tell ther tales. Watch Historic film footage of the traps that proliferated throughout Puget sound and Alaskan waters. Step inside the tiny shacks where trap watchmen contended with the ever-changing moods of the sea...and the lurking presence of the fish pirates. Marvel at the bygone age."
