It appears that Nat Geo People is running the complete series of Hook, Line, And Sisters, which is a reality show about the F/V Memry Anne purse seining for salmon in Chignik Alaska. As you can see from the clip, they also include some Sitka Herring footage from 2012. The show had a short run on TLC in America about a year ago and only three episodes were aired. I had a few reservations about the show alienating male fishermen in Alaska, but I still found it entertaining. I was convinced that the captain canceled the show, because he looked like such an imbecile. It’s great to see salmon seining on the Telly, but I hope that any future shows about commercial salmon fishing focus more on the community and lifestyle of fishermen and women. I wasn’t particularly thrilled about a show that only focuses on one vessel, when there is a fleet with a hundred different perspectives. I wonder how the show will be received this time around…

I'm loving life in Alaska! Check out my viewpoint from Alaska, as I go commercial fishing and skiing thru the land of the midnight sun. This is Alaska commercial fishing shown the way it should be, from fishermen. When, I'm not working on the high seas, I enjoy time with my family in Juneau, AK enjoying life, love and salmon in southeast Alaska
