Sharks and Pound Net Fishermen on the North Fork
What really surprised me is that there is still at least one pound net fisherman on the North Fork. Pound nets are an old, very low-tech, labor intensive way of fishing.
In 1989 I spent a morning with a pound net fisherman out of Greenport, named Dan Dzenkowski. I had intended to include an account of the morning in my book but it didn't quite fit, so I posted it here instead. I called it The Last Fisherman, a name which obviously turns out to be wrong.
