Native Art for Salmon Fishing Enthusiasts and Fishermen

I noticed that there are quite a few operations out in the northwest region as well as other areas for salmon fishing. Fishermen (and ladies) who go for salmon may want to take a look at some of the great Northwest Indian artwork of salmon fish. The Northwest Indian tribes place a great importance to the salmon fish since it has always been such an important source of food. Therefore, they use the salmon as a common subject for their Northwest Indian art. See the article Salmon in Northwest Indian Art for background information.

I've seen many nice contemporary non-native artwork depicting the salmons as well which I'm sure many salmon fishing sportsmen already have. The Northwest Indian art versions of salmon may not be familiar to many fishermen and outdoor sportsmen so here's an invitation to check some out at the gallery section for Native Salmon Carvings.
