Warren on fishing

Originally published in 1885.
...and the fish which swam in its clear water could not be surpassed in quality or quantity in any other spot on earth. They manufactured their nets of the inner bark of the bass and cedar trees, and from the fibres of the nettle.
William Warren, History of the Ojibway People (St. Paul: Minnesota HIstorical Society, 1984), 97.
