Fishing on the Stilly

The men in my house were counting down the days until fishing season. September first was opening day, and they headed out right after Larry got off work. They went fishing all of September, but only caught four fish. On the Stilly it is illigal to have barbs on your hooks, which results in lots of fish getting off the hook. They still had a wonderful time, and I decided since they are fishing all of September let's study Pacific Northwest Salmon. They have been reading books, watching documentaries, doing online searches, and now they are culminating everything they learned into a binder, complete with pictures, diagrams, and information they learned. Here are some of the pictures they took.

Some how they were posted in the wrong order, but oh well, I don't have time to play with it today, because I am helping my young men put their report folders together. It has been a wonderful way to learn about God's creation together as a family.


  1. What a great study!! It looks like lots of fun. We haven't been fishing here yet and miss it so much. We love to fish even when we don't catch anything. Did that top rack of salmon get smoked on the BBQ? (I love smoked salmon!)

  2. I will do a post on Redneck smoked salmon very soon. It was so much fun to come up with our very own way to smoke fish, and the fish turned out wonderful!
