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.

I agree. Life has changed. I am glad I have the memories I do and some old family B&W's and 8mm's that bring it back to me.

These skills will eventually become lost art.

You all are right. This is why I posted the videos, it is important to pass this on.

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.
