Grateful All Around

Emily Lints
Fishing is always a bit of a flurry. 
It's a flurry to catch the fish and then it's a flurry to get all of our orders out.  By now most customers are enjoying their 2015 Salmon Shares. 
As our fishing flurry slows down we take the time to sit back, eat lots of Scrumptious Sockeye Salmon, and be grateful for YOU- our great customers! We also love hearing how many of you are grateful to get your mouths on your Scrumptious Sockeye Salmon Shares.  We've received so many thank you cards, notes and emails.  Each one bolsters us to continue connecting you with some of the finest seafood available.

THANK YOU FOR YOUR BUSINESS AND THANK YOU FOR BEING THANKFUL!
We still have limited 2015 Salmon Shares available.  We are planning another Seattle/Methow drop off and are still shipping orders as well.  Contact us if you're interested!

Family of Four

DSC_6791 We've been busy the last month with our new greatest project: Benjamin Harding Lints, born 10/10/14 in Brewster, WA.  Benjamin weighed 8 lbs. 10 oz and measured 21 inches at birth.  He is healthy and content and already proving to be a gentle soul.

We are so grateful!!!

We are spending the fall-spring back in the Methow Valley of WA.  We joke that the Methow is our calving ground and Alaska is our feeding ground.  Last week we bought boxes of winter storage onions and squash from a local farmer in Twisp.  The beauty and succulent taste of the onions is so incredible and so much better than what we buy at the grocery store.  Granted, we had to coordinate back and forth to arrange a pickup time and may have paid more than the non-organic, non-local store counterpart. It reminds us that buying directly from the producer is so much more rewarding in knowing who we are supporting and in the quality of the food.  We hope you feel the same about buying fish from us! We are doing our best to get back to customers but may be on a newborn sporadic schedule for a little while.  It's amazing how a little one can shake things up!  We have about 500 pounds of sockeye to sell before the end of the year and 300 pounds of halibut and will be in touch soon.  Thank you to all of you have already bought your Scrumptious Sockeye Salmon Shares this year.  We hope you are enjoying the scrumptiousness!

Life Update

We know that some of you follow this blog to hear about us in general, so here's a quick photo update: OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA We had a great winter in Washington, where the snow conditions were not at their best but surely better than coastal Alaska's!  (yes, we tried to stop being seasonal but haven't quite figured out how to kick the habit yet . . .)  Grandma Kathy "Rah Rah" enjoyed her time with Maggie. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe had a nice Mexico get away.  The highlight for Maggie was for sure all the little dogs! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAHere's Maggie on one of her first fishing adventures, fishing for little Bonita by kayak.  (She still signs the story of how Mama had the fishing line tied to her toe, screamed, tried to pull the fish in and lost it!).  Did we mention we're expecting another baby this fall!! OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAWe recently escaped from boat work for a little biking adventure in Denali National Park.  It was complete with snow most days, bears and sheep. OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERAMaggie (now 18 months) learned how to use her very own sleeping bag! photo(1)On a more serious note, in the midst of little girls growing up and babies growing in the belly, Emily's stepdad, Dave, died this April.  It's still a shock and we miss his presence.  He was a kind, giving man who lived a full life and even helped drive your fish around last summer.  We love you Dave.

*UPDATE:  Due to your excitement and our limited freezer capacity when we drive to the Methow, Methow orders are full!  New Methow orders will be added to our wait list.  If we can arrange for more freezer capacity we'll take people off of the wait list.

 Alaska and shipped orders are still available, so keep them coming!
