Much of this book is anecdotal, a retelling of the author's personal fishing stories, and of
other fishers who, in the 1970s "slipped off the sands of Cannon Beach" in 20-foot-long
dories seeking salmon, coho, cod, rockfish and crabs. Also included is a brief history of dory
fishing, a dory glossary, a list of captains and their boats, and numerous photos.
About the Author
Peter Lindsey arrived in Cannon Beach in the early 1950s. As a folklorist, his interest lies in the
study of stories, folktales, and other knowledge passed from generation to generation in oral
tradition. Dory construction, trolling techniques, gear, and fishing wisdom have long been
passed down by example and word of mouth.
