Fishing Gears and Methods

1. Gurit (Gleaning gear)
     This instrument is used for finding and gathering clams or shellfish along the beach especially during low tide. This tool is made of a wooden frame with a metal shoe. The frame is fitted with a wooden pole as handle. The tool is dragged along the exposed tidal flats to expose the hard-shelled clams. This technique provides ease in locating clams to harvest. Modern garit is made of steel from pole to the shoe.
