Default Fishing!

Originally I posted this in one of the decade threads, but thought I would share this

I had a great experience yesterday - went dipnetting (this is fishing with a 10' pole and 4' wide net for red salmon) in the Kenai River with some friends. We had a great haul - enough to feed my family good salmon for the next year.

It's very hard, dirty, cold work even on a beautiful day like yesterday was - and I was fit! Strongest, fittest person on the boat. It takes many hours - and I had the stamina!

Today we get to clean all those fish! Going to be a long, dirty, backbreaking saturday...

thanks, all! Today we filleted and I personally packed/froze 96 fillets. The subsistence fishing we are allowed as AK residents keeps my family in salmon for the entire year.

Boy, am I tired.
