Hi ho silver!

Caught the first Coho (AKA Silver) Salmon of the year in the Buskin River. My dad got to witness this, and I think he liked seeing his little girl wrestle her in and beat the you-know-what out of her in order to end her life swiftly. That's fairly primal. Anyway, here is my lovely fish in all of her 12.5 pound glory:


Not too much on the knitting front (although I had a disaster with some Felt Clogs- more on that later). Am busy packing (paying especial attention to what to knit on the journey) and making venison jerky to take down to Portland, as we leave EARLY tomorrow. Will be sure to post many pics of my Grand Tour of all things fiber in the NW...
