#FORTHELOVEOFWILDSTEELHEAD - There are always so many layers to every issue and over the last year I found myself asking more and more questions about issues I care about. One of these issues is the plight of our native fish, specifically salmon and steelhead. Whether or not salmon and steelhead go extinct is up to us, but we all need to start informing ourselves and informing others of what these fish are up against. The issues include salmon farming / hatcheries / salmon enhancement / management of fisheries / logging practices….it is a very bumpy uphill battle and still these incredible creatures goes out into the ocean and come back to the river they were born. We need to work together and act on solutions to the problems these fish face.
Im excited to be working on a number of new personal projects this year, but am most excited about working on a project about wild salmon and steelhead that will hopefully inform and educate.
Thanks Copi @theflyfishjournal for this portrait of me with a hatchery steelhead I killed last winter in Oregon.
