Derek's BIG fish

We moved into our house in May of 2006 and since then Derek has had our neighbor as a fishing buddy. They go throughout the year and often spend several days and hours on the river and have come home with almost no fish. Since 2006 I think Derek has brought home 2 fish. So then this year everything changed. Derek went out to Neah Bay and came back with lots of fish, then he switched rivers to the Puyallup and Cowlitz from the stupid fishless Nisqually. Well, it has fish but the Indians get all the fish in the nets. Today he got these crazy salmon. For those of you like me who don't know salmon this is a King (the big one) and a silver (the smaller big one). I think salmon are the ugliest fish but they are so freaking yummy. Mmmmmmmm!!! Smoked or BBQ's with butter, or slathered with teriyaki or with a creamy dill sauce. Then the smoked stuff is awesome with cream cheese on bagels or crackers or even a sandwich. Our freezer is nice and full of fish now. Ethan has even done some catching. It is too cool.

I think the King is going to eat the silver. Hahaha!!
