Dave and I have been doing a different type of fishing these days -- even though we live by the water we are sculpting our fish rather than catching them. Every four years their are larger amounts (in the millions) of salmon returning to spawn in October. This year is one of those times and so several hundred thousand tourist will be stopping by to see this spectacular event.
This will be our second time participating in the Artisan Market. We know a little more what to expect this time round so will be better prepared and have already been in high production mode. We have set aside several days each week where we try to make our "quota" of salmon. With this plan in action we should be able to have enough made in plenty of time.
Here are some of the salmon ready to attach to various findings to create souvenir items like zipper pulls, key chains and such.
