My how things have changed. This video show what it was like to fish in the 60s. In the first video I posted in this series, Building an Alaskan Log Cabin.. I thought that looked like back breaking work…. This video about fishing looks like a tough way to make a living as well.

If you enjoy learning about the way things use to be done.. you may enjoy this book called

Fisherman Roy Koshney of Alaska mends fishing nets, sails out in his old cannery boat (the PG 78) on the Kasilof or Kenai River, runs out nets, pulls in fish, uses a peugh to move fish out of the boat hold and up to a cannery operation, and cuts up salmon with his wife Ethel Koshney. John Baker filmed the sequence in the late 1960s and added narration in about 2000 (Color/Sound/16mm film). This sequence contains excerpts from AAF-16370 from the John Baker collection held by the Alaska Film Archives, a unit of the Alaska and Polar Regions Collections & Archives Department in the Elmer E. Rasmuson Library, University of Alaska Fairbanks. For more information please contact the Alaska Film Archives.
