Headsweats Team Member Alison Cochran, Graphic & Sales Magician, proves that Headsweats is tough enough for Alaska! Alison’s boyfriend, Geff Werning worked in Alaska over the summer as a Commercial Salmon Fisherman. Don, the owner of the operation, briefly details their season and includes some photos. Enjoy:
About the Season:
Low numbers of fish plagued the bay except for the few fishermen that were working in mid June. Heat waves early and late and miserable rain and wind for the bulk of the early fishing days. The Alaska Fish and Game closed us down for almost 6 days in July out of fear of escapement levels. Hope springs eternal and we are looking forward to next year.
There is also a big movement against the proposed Pebble Mine. Find out more here: www.facebook.com/FishermenforBristolBay
