      "Untangling the Floats", was the 10th print issued in 1998 by Rie Munoz

     Alaskans in the commercial set-net salmon fisheries do a lot more than fish.  Besides spending the better part of the day, and frequently the night, on the fishing grounds picking salmon out of their nets, they also periodically have to shake the long  net free of seaweed ,or mend their nets,or hand their nets with  new floats or sinkers.  They snatch a few hours sleep when they can.
     And, oh yes, my friend shown in this image, also prepares three meals a day for the family and makes an differ to keep their one-room fishing cabin in some semblance of order.  Do they enjoy this busy and exhaustion summer life style?   YES!!!
