"Walk into The Rainforest and sense time. Trees that are centuries old soar three hundred feet high, their trunks like pillars in a nave and the light beneath them like that filtered through cathedral glass." - Ruth Kirk, What is the Rain Forest

Ghastly vestiges of salmon lie along shore after spawning Sept 19, 2007 (All Day) - Fishing like a Pro on Kynoch Nutrients from salmon have been found in the treetops of Great Bear showing how much the health and vitality of this region depends on the salmon runs. A whole new meaning to "Freeganism"
Dead salmon point upstream towards the spawning grounds
Any last words?
I saw a man on National Geographic catch a salmon with his bare hands during a salmon run. It was one of my wishes to do the same...Moments later...
HOLY COW! The one-handed tail grab! I was obviously excited. Even the Bears were impressed. "Goooooooaaaaaaaaaaaaaaalllllllllll"
Rob prefers the fishing hook
But he caught this rocking ratfish with mesmerizing emerald eyes. The Kitasoo (xai'Xais) First Nation have some wonderful oral histories about this guy.
