I was a crew member on a commercial salmon fishing boat in SE Alaska for 4 summers, when I was younger. I've been a cork man, a lead man and a web man. We were based out Wrangell Alaska. It's the only time in my life I didn't shave for the whole summer. I sure wish I could be there for the 4th this weekend. It's their big festival. I miss my friends and fresh seafood, too...Remember, the next time you buy salmon at the store, make sure it's 'wild caught Alaska salmon' and not farm raised. BIG difference.-Alan
