Photograph byF.W.Goro IN LA TURBALLE'S CROWDED HARBOR, A FISHERMAN DEMONSTRATES ONE WAY OF CATCHING BRITTANY'S FAMED SARDINES First he lowers his little old-fashioned net and throws in cod's roe or other bait to lure the tiny fish. In trying to swim through the fine meshes, sardines are caught by the gills and cannot withdraw their heads. Now the net is being hoisted aboard with silvery fish dangling from it, afterwhich the catch will beshaken off. For big catches much larger nets are used (pages 756 and 758). The sardine fleet puts to sea before daybreak, returning about 4 p. m.
