Shrinking Salmon

All fly fishers have seen the old black-and-white photos of long-gone anglers, displaying the giant salmon they just caught. KUOW, a radio station serving western Washington and Southern British Columbia, has produced a news story that helps explain why we rarely see salmon of that size today. It came to my attention through the Swinomish Indian Tribal Community Department of Environmental Protection. You can read or listen to the story at the following link.

    Mike Graybrook here.

    I discovered your site recently and enjoy receiving your posts.

    I just published a book of photographs of all the subspecies of cutthroat trout and the story of my travels across the west to make the book. The book was published by Scott & Nix, and John Gierach wrote the introduction.

    I would be happy to send you a copy at no cost. If you are interested send me you mailing address.

      Hi Michael, I have heard about the book and have intended to get a copy. You offer is generous, and I’ll be sure to share information about it on the blog. I am a big fan of cutthroats, personally. If you send an email address to, I can provide my physical address. I believe I have a book I can share with you too.
