Salmon Fishing



This is a wonderful picture from 1895 showing two men salmon fishing from a boat. The picture was taken on the Columbia River in Oregon. They are fishing with a net.

  1. I imagine that is a gill net they are using, but, heavens, that looks like work!

  2. Mmm...I'm having salmon for dinner today! :)
    This picture makes me think of Rudyard Kipling's book, "Captains Courageous".
