There Aren’t Enough Songs About Fishing the Sockeye Run

Remembering the good old days in song

The Canadian Cowboy sings about good fishing and good living

Fishing in the Georgia Strait is a good, honest life.

Tim Hus isn’t a fisherman, but he knows how to write a good tune about being one.

Listen to this song about motoring through the fog with a hold full of salmon. Unless things change dramatically its unlikely to happen again.

When Vancouver Island’s commercial fishery is reeling because of the collapse of salmon runs it’s worth looking back to a time of plenty.

In his oldy but goody Seine Boat Song, Hus saigns “No there’s nothing better than this old seine netter and a four-man crew to call my own.”
