    There he goes. One of God's own prototypes. A high-powered mutant of some kind never even considered for mass production. Too weird to live, and too rare to die.

    Well done!!! The skin would make a nice inlay for a sheath if you could tan it. Moon

    "Fishskins were used for mukluks, mittens, water carriers, and
    raincoats....The king salmon is used for boots, heavy-duty boots. Only
    female silver salmon is used for hats for girls. And the pike skin is for
    water jugs. The trout is for bags....
    "You take the skin off and soak it in the water, and then you scrape it
    with a sea shell. Some fish you have to scale; some fish you don't. Like
    pike and white fish, you've got to scale it, you soak it in urine. The
    urine has to come from a young boy baby before weaning. It doesn't contain
    any chemicals, just momma's milk. For thicker skins, you have to use the
    urine from an older boy, around the time his voice changes.
    "[The skin soaks in the urine] sometimes half a day, sometimes overnight.
    The longer you soak it, the softer it gets. Then my mother used to
    use[Fells] Naphtha soap, and she sudsed it in the water and then cooled
    off the water and then put the skin in it. Then she puts aspen shavings
    in the water and cools it off, then you rinse it in clear water and wring
    it out. My mother used a towel to absorb the water. I asked her one time
    in camp, 'What did you use when you didn't have cloth?' She said they used
    dried moss. And then you put it on a smooth board, stick it there, the
    inside facing in. Then when it dries, it will just peel off itself. You
    store it away, and when you are ready to use it, you wet the shavings that
    you saved, and you pad them onto the fishskin on the outer side. Then you
    roll it and leave it until it dries. Then you shake it off." [Hickman
    1988: 19ff.]
