© Jeff Clarke Wabanaki fish spear, 19th c.
Historic replica
This ash shaft, bone prong (inside), maple leads (outside) and hemp cord spear, called nodamawogan in Abenaki, was used throughout the Northeast. Its design made catching walleye-sized fish easier than a trident.

The groove down the center of this abrader resulted from shaping and polishing the shafts of spears and arrows and possibly from the production of saltwater shell wampum. Donated by Professor Frederick M. Wisemanbr

© Julie Silverman / ECHO Slate fishing reel, rawhide and sinew line, and bone hook
Historic replica
This early hand reel was soaked for hours to make the line flexible enough to tie a sinker to it. Then it was baited and dropped overboard to catch a deep water fish—the original pocket fisherman!
