Anybody interested in a Gear Swap/Sale ?
I have plenty of Freshwater hear I don't need anymore. Was thinking of having a gear swap/sale here at the Tides Inn on Friday.
If you have gear to swap/sale, bring a table or tarp and display your goods in a organized Fashon.
Let me know if interested and any thoughts.
Might even break out the BBQ

None of the current proposed salmon alternatives has salmon fishing open in May.  That doesn't seem likely to change from what I am hearing.  Sacramento River is the confining stock.  We will most likely get a KMZ season though.

You are welcome Eric!  Honestly, this event does not happen with out amazing volunteers to help run the event - and if you always wanted to be part of the Gyotaku Team, please let me know! And it doesn't happen without people of all ages participating. I will be posting more information specific to the 7th Annual Gyotaku Extravaganza! in a separate thread soon. 

Looking forward to seeing another year of great fish printing art!!

Brandi

Met with my good friend Brandi recently, and we hashed out some details for this year's Gyotaku.  Her efforts and the help of her team of volunteers each year has made the fish printing a really special part of Gimme Shelter - thank you so much, Brandi, for your continued dedication to the Gimme Shelter Gyotaku Extravaganza!  :smt001

Here's the plan:

I've always wanted to be a part of the Gyotaku, but scoring and prepping for the potluck have limited me to just a couple of quick visits to the Gyo over the years.  Scoring has actually become more and more manageable with the refining of the system and the fact that only about 25% of participants turn in fish, so it's time for a change.  This year I'm moving the scoring up to the campground to be right next to the fish printing!  I've spoken to Jack Sanford (campground owner) about this, and he's all about it, so it's basically a done deal.

Kids print for free, and there are shirts and all the printing materials available to adults who wish to participate.  This is a really cool family event.  At the potluck we'll ask all the kids to come up in their prints, and each kid will get a prize.

- I think we agreed on a cut-off age for kids - if you're 16 you need a fishing license, and you can't print for free!
- Must bring your own fish and take it with you!
- Kids must have an adult accompanying them in order to participate.
- No smoking.

So stoked to make this move that will allow me to more fully experience, enjoy and learn from the Gyotaku along with the turning in of fish at the scoring check-in.  This gig is evolving, and that growth and change comes from ideals and observations made about the world around us.  The fish, the kelp, the abs, the salmon and everything in the web of life here are changing - things are doing what I used to wonder about when I'd consider that my grandparents could harvest 10 abs apiece back in the day, or that it's been just over 20 years now that you could keep a salmon or steelhead in the Eel.  Things change - generally, wildlife declines.  I want this event to always be about the respect we have for our environment and the amazing resources living on the landscape, and that means that the event is also about how we appreciate, preserve and work to restore these things that are so precious to us.  Bringing the kids in to the mix and having them do hands-on art with the wildlife that we idolize is absolutely in line with how I want things to go.  Thanks for participating.  :smt001

Isn't that just for the Eureka area, Doug?

Hats are in.

The standard that's on the registration form is a black hat with blue sapphire thread.  I also got some navy hats with black thread done.  I used the same high quality Richardson PTS20 that I've used the past 2 years.

Until I made GS hats a couple years ago I was never much of a hat person.  Now I wear them all the time.

No, it's pretty well everywhere except monterey.  We will also probably have an in-season action for an April closure, again everywhere except monterey.
