I took several trips up into the northwest sailing through Puget Sound. There coho salmon are readily caught off the boats before they make their run up the spawning streams. I noticed that the orca and the kodiak bear made use of that particular species of salmon and after catching several myself, I was able to study them up close. They have a wonderful silver rainbow sheen to their skin. I played with a lot of different patinas on this piece.
