by John Gay

New England, September 1885 - A time when the vast fishing fleets set sail for the Grand Banks off Newfoundland. A time of the 'flake yards', of hand salting, of spit cod drying in the sun. A time, too, of the small fleets, the smacks, and the little cat-boats that rolled and pitched off-shore... that depended upon the seasonal fish run... upon the Will of God.
