Artist's Description

Although Canadian salmon are among the largest in the world, a significant waterfall still presents a daunting challenge. Global warming is NOT helping matters because rivers like this one that do not originate at glaciers have lower levels. Oldtimers tell of these salmon freely leaping over this waterfall because there was more water depth to take a run at it. Maybe this is why the annual salmon migration is called a “run”… yeah, that’s prob’ly it. Canadian fishermen are much too sportsman-like to take advantage of the fish that are forced to gather at a blockage like this waterfall. So, what’s with this guy in the photo?! NOT CANADIAN!! Look at the trees… late summer, so the temperatures are still very warm, probably not even freezing overnight. Now look at the wussy fisherman! A toque on his wussy head, AND wearing a jacket! He’s obviously a wimpy rich tourist who arrives with an real fishing rod and reel. A Canadian just cuts a willow stick and ties the line to it. Granted, even an average-size salmon like these require a good stout willow. Besides, if he was a Canadian he’d be out there giving that poor fish a push up the falls.
