There are so many ways of finding and defining balance. When it comes to the fight for saving Bristol Bay salmon from the threat of large scale mining, namely the proposed Pebble Mine, science and emotion are to be considered. In the situation that I speak of my emotions do run high and it can […]

Moving forward from one year ago today, many highlights come to mind. The first being the overwhelming response to the comment period that commenced after the EPA opened it’s draft Bristol Bay Watershed Assessment to public review.

Today I spent the day in Dillingham and snapped photos of many murals that represent the pride associated with fish, namely salmon, in the community.

A year has passed and then some since my first post in fish*wine*ski and I didn’t want the whole month of January to go by without posting something. I have been enjoying a little of each of my favorite things, but not a lot of any. It’s all right, it’s okay, my love for fish, […]

Today marks the 11th year since you were born into this world, but you have been an important part of my life since before that day. I can remember relaxing with the family in between fishing tides the summer you were born. We were on the couch and you were stretching and waving to everybody […]

All who love salmon have their own special way of preparing it. At the 25th Annual International Pinot Noir Celebration in McMinnville, OR I bore witness to yet another way that salmon can be prepared and it was a grand spectacle, befitting of the celebration. For this special evening king salmon from Neah Bay […]

It is always jarring to return to the world outside of Bristol Bay after a season of commercial salmon fishing. The summer is full of intensity, but at the same time there is a sense of being away from it all. This year I will be making a further departure from Naknek, the town and […]
