I found sources showing whole communities pooling together to keep a fish wheel functioning in order to supply the village with food and income also I suppose.

On one TV program a guy living up there has 25 dogs to keep healthy. He feeds them mostly fish so his harvest of the fish, he says, is his most important task each year.

The way it functions is similar to a type of hay rake introduced when I was a lad. I never thought it was efficient as a way to wind row hay, but here being turned by the water flow and with with the salman swimming up stream, it is amazingly efficient. I'd not thought of doing such.

This is the type of resourcefulness that has intrigued me so. The main reason I have a historic passion for the pioneers of our country which also holds for members of the First Nations , the first settlers

If we don't count our blessings
We are just wasting our time
