In late spring, when the Mountain Laurel blooms in Bibb County, Redhorse fish are snared by using wire loops on long cane poles. What was once an important food gathering activity is now practiced as a seasonal family activity. Guests include historian and sometime folklorist, Dr. Jim Brown, of Samford University.
