Rathe Catcher


A delicacy in many parts of the world, rathes have been harvested since the end of the third dynasty. Despite advances in technology, the most efficient way to harvest rathes is still by hand by a professional rathe catcher. Only intuition and experience have been able to predict the correct air currents that entice the rathes out into the open for their biannual migration across the highest peaks of the Ubontuga Mountains. Special care must also be taken by the catchers to prevent bruising the valuable and succulent flesh of the rathes during their harvest. Only catchers with the softest of touch are rewarded with the greatest price for their bounty.
