    Great job on this wonderful Stan Rogers song, one of my favorites. I wish I could play it that well. Comment on interpretation of the lyrcs: I've always assumed that what was meant by the line "The inspectors raise hell if we take any home" did not refer to the smelt they were catching but rather the "white fish or trout" they were not allowed to catch. I don't live in Canada so I can't say for sure if there's such a regulation that prevents Canadians from eating Smelt. Too bad if there is, I found them pretty tasty salted and roasted.
