Kelp-on-line


Every spring a select group of permitted fishermen go to a secluded bay around Klawock, Alaska to what they call the herring pound. Fishermen use a floating platform that holds their nets where they put kelp leaves on a line, fill it with herring and wait until they lay their eggs on the kelp. This photo was taken from our skiff into the sunlit waters which I call "kelp-on-line".
