I had a trip to the coast recently in the hope of collecting some Razor Clams to cook over an open fire. It was a sunny morning with a cold Easterly wind
and the tide was out
In the pools and creeks there was lots of evidence that this could be a good location for Razor Clams with many empty shells
I was looking for key shaped holes or small craters in the sand, then I put salt down which will irritate the clam and for a brief time it rises out of the sand to clear the salt…..at least that’s the theory.
Once the salt is down you must wait, ready to grab it as it emerges
This is the first time I have tried this and clearly do not have the right technique as after two hours, no clams had appeared.
There were many of these strange structures protruding from the sand but I have no idea what they are. Can anyone tell me please?
