    I see that Tim has a hoe specially modified for snake-catching. That is properly “canebrake,” you can have a cypress brake or just a brake of woods, reeds, etc. It is a low, linear feature, generally wet. The length and narrowness tho is the main charcateristic. A word of Irish or Scottish origin I would guess, commonly misspelled “break”.
