Flip and Rip

The Alaska Department of Fish and Game is considering various proposals to change the rule which prohibits the snagging of sockeye salmon in any part of the body other than the mouth. Some say snagging is snagging. Others, like emergency room doctors, are wondering what they will do with all of the free time on their hands. “All summer the emergency room doctors at Central Peninsula General Hospital stick the fishhooks they remove from people’s bodies into foam dummies dressed like anglers. At summer’s end they usually have a collection of about 200, mostly of artificial flies intended for sockeye salmon.” Brandon Loomis in the Anchorage Daily News.
