I'm happy to see that someone had the fore thought to record this man's skills. Many, many skills of the past are slowly being lost as the old timers are leaving us, it seems, faster and faster, and the up coming generations don't seem to be too concerned about how to do things them selves the good old way. It's really a shame too.
That is Willie Roe from Tilghman Island, I believe he is in his 80,s now. He no longer makes the nets as I am sure his hands are not as steady as they once was . Good luck with making the net with your son, should be fun.
