Event

Mega Low Tide Mussel/Clam Extravaganza
I am moving the following to the top of the description so it's clear to everybody:

Note: you will need waders, or knee-high boots, or wetsuit + booties.  Shorts and wading shoes will work if you have high tolerance for cold water--but if you go this route bring a towel and change of clothes/shoes.  Dress for cold weather or rain.  Also:  this is a class, not a guided fishing trip.  If you want to gather stuff on your own you must wait till the class is over and make sure you have a valid CA fishing license.  Be forewarned: we do a lot of walking.

Now, here's what my class is all about:

Learn the basics of intertidal hunting and gathering in this one of a kind totally awesome walking tour at Pillar Point CA (27 minutes south of SF by car).  Learn how to read the holes in the mudflats for different types of delicious invertebrates.  How to dig the monstrous "horseneck" clam from the mud, the ins and outs of snail picking, limpet gathering, mussel foraging.  When is the safest time to eat mussels, when not?  Okie noodling for rock crabs in the surge channels.  Ouch!  How to poke pole for the flavorful and abundant Monkeyface Eel, what are the best local kelps and how are they prepared? Learn all this and more on a remarkable, one-of-a-kind walking tour with eel master, fisherman and former DFG fisheries observer Kirk Lombard.

VIDEOS:
Here's a video from the New York Times showing a bit about me and my love of the mudflats: http://www.nytimes.com/video/t-magazine/100000001738149/edible-selby-kirk-lombard.html
