The life of the fisherman was characterised by diligence, perseverance and determined busyness. The focus of the year’s work was to have everything ready for the most important season – the spring fishing. The fisherman would sit by his campfire from early in the morning until late into the night, making new or repairing old fishing equipment. The task of the women was to comb, spin and wash the flax and hemp yarn while the men and older children were making the fishing gear.
