Preparing for the Return of the Sockeye
I've been in full production these days preparing for the Return of the Sockeye starting October 2nd. There was an abundance of salmon this summer -- (millions) -- out in the Pacific ocean and a good amount of those are heading our way inland to spawn in the Adam's River. We were fortunate to be juried into the local artisan gift shop they have set up at the log cabin there each year. Thought I would show you how my spawning salmon pins are put together -- each one formed by hand so there are no two alike.
