Note on following page: The two salmon traps shown in this photograph are most beautifully made, and are fished in and watched during the night, the boy has take his place beside a long pole which is cleft at one end and which he lets depend from his nose, and with the trap door up, and open, goes to sleep, and when a salmon rushes in he immediately feels the jar given to his nose, drops the door, and spears the fish, which he is well able to see as it swims about from the brightness of its scales. N.B. Whenever I told this in Victoria to my friends they were always incredulous, and remarked if any one else had told us this we should not have believed them.
