Hard work on the weir: Minas Basin fisherman uses ancient technique

BRAMBER — It’s a large day on the mud flats of the Minas Basin. The sky is clear, there’s a slight breeze and the famous tide has receded far off into the distance. We’re about half a kilometre from shore, and the view is spectacular. The beach is flat on all sides, ragged cliffs line the shore behind us and ahead is the large bluff of Cape Blomidon.  [email protected]
