Sailing for Salmon
They were known as double-enders: wooden fishing boats with identically shaped bows and sterns that once sailed the waters of Bristol Bay from the late 1800s through the 1950s. This exhibit is an outgrowth of Tim Troll's book, "Sailing for Salmon," which contains photographs and essays from people who sailed for salmon. Sailing for Salmon was curated by Tim Troll and John Branson for the Pratt Museum, Homer. The Alaska State Museum has enhanced the exhibition with artifacts from its collections.
