DescriptionLewis Payne talks about fishing. Since he did not have a boat of his own, as a young man he went fishing for five years in another man's boat. They sold their catch to Earls in the Town of Fogo. Lewis then discusses the outmigration of people to Alberta. Stages, traps and people are gone from the community. Bessie Dawe states that the cove was once full of flakes, so you could step from one to the next. From the Anthonys to the Dawes and the Roses there would be flakes.
