TV show to feature local cook, catch


The show starts with a “crafty recluse” on the river showing Sargent how to rebuild a weir and learning to fish for eels and smoke them, according to show’s website. He is shown these skills by veteran fisherman Ray Turner, owner of Delaware Delicacies Smokehouse in Hancock.

Turner said that having been the subject of articles in the New York Times and other publications, if the show was looking to highlight eel fishing, “I was it.”

Catching eels with a weir is similar to panning for gold, he said.

“We had a good time” filming the episode, Turner said, which is a requirement for anyone wanting to fish with him.
