    Default Salt- but not sport

    This is the way Alaska men used to roll. They make the reality show folks look like candy *****es. Probably don't want to watch if you are a comfish hater.

    He's dead now, but he still has four Youtube videos on his own channel. The one about catching wolverine on Esther Island is pretty cool too.
    I don't believe there are any more men like this left in Alaska... might be a few. My wife's uncle Johnny Nicholson was like him, but he's gone too. But Alaska isn't the free place is was even up into the 80s, so it would be hard to do what they did without even thinking about how hard it was.

    Great point and wish it was that way but the followers, pansies, always seem to hate on old timers. At the core I wonder if they do that because they know they couldn't handle it. I know I couldn't what those guys went through!

    At about 10:45 in the movie he shows Kodiak. In 1985 about 12 of us from Montana drove up to Seward and ferried to Kodiak and worked the canneries for the summer. The impact of that tidal wave must have been incredible. We youngsters listened to lots of old timers talk about the old days, the earth quake, etc. Wish I would have brought a movie camera!

    Yes, it was a Hansen, and I'm sure it is still fishing.
