In Great South Bay there are still commercial fishermen who harvest killies, crabs and clams for their livelihoods. Join us for a day of exploration with local baymen who have learned their trades from a tradition that has been passed down within their families since the 1800s. On this guided tour led by folklorist Nancy Solomon, we will learn firsthand how the bay has changed through its history. Also joining us will be Boatyard author Christine D’Alessandro and journalist Shoshanna McCollum, author of Fire Island. Families are encouraged to attend and learn how to carve decoys, how to hold a clam rake and other traditional skills used by traditional baymen and fishermen.
