I have called several times and left messages to order smoked eels but never received a call back. Is the smoke house closed? Is Ray alright?

Would love to visit. Can I go fishing?

I live 250 miles away. I would love to come up to buy some smoked eel. I havn't had that for a long time. No one answers the phone. I left messages several times but get no call back. That's a long drive to find you're closed. my e mail is Phone 848 224 4483

Is Ray still with us?

Joseph, 8/12/2018

Yes, Ray is alive and well -- open every day. He's 70yrs old and pretty much off-grid down on the river. As of 2 weeks ago 9/9, he had smoked shrimp, salmon and trout plus cheese plus shelves of canned/jarred preserves and other specialty foods. Eels have been scarce this year but he's still holding out hope.
