Bette – Just the other day some friends and I went clamming in Noyack Bay out on Long Island. We kayacked to a spot where my friends had dug before with luck. Wading in the shallow water they immediately started finding clams but I searched in vain, no clams to be found. They were convinced I did not have the “correct technique” for this task. My ego was bruised but I was fortunate enough to have great friends who were willing to share their large find of over 75 clams with me. We made a wonderful and fresh meal with these delicious clams.
