TCS: Mad Englishman Near the Midnight Sun – Part 13

Good Morning!

Coffee cup


Welcome to The Coffee Shop, just for you early risers on Monday mornings. This is an Open Thread forum, so if you have an off-topic opinion burning a hole in your brainpan, feel free to add a comment.



Appropriately, our 13th episode falls on Halloween, and it is a bit gruesome. Bertie meets up with a dedicated band of guys trying to save the Chinook Salmon from extinction, but their methods are not for the faint of heart. So be warned – blood ahead! 



And to get your day started, here’s the band Leftover Salmon with “Aquatic Hitchhiker”


Wishing everybody a day of treats without the tricks!

  1. It is Monday, and I have to work. Sleep cycle still all messed up. Losing your daughters within months of each other tends to do that to a person.

    Salmon are very odd fish, and become even stranger as they near the end of their lives. I love baked salmon. Watching what the locals call “combat fishing” in Alaska is wild. Fishermen standing almost shoulder to shoulder on the stream bank, casting lures non-stop. When I saw that the first time, I told my son you could not get me to go down there for any amount of money. A guy could get hurt by all those lures with big hooks flying about.

    Do a YouTube search for “Combat fishing in Alaska.” It has to be seen to be believed.

    Good Morning Chuck –

    Sounds downright scary – I can attest those hooks HURT, and can be hard to get out.
