Salmon trolling is no dream of ease. It's a hard and sometimes hazardous life, but dangerous in a good way because it tests your measure almost every day. There's loneliness, bravery, often misery and frustration because you're in a tiny, rolling boat and at the mercy of wind and sea.

But there's loveliness too, as one hauls anchor amidst the rosy glow of a new dawn and cruises out of some wild, secluded harbor each morning in search of salmon. And when you catch one of these silvery, powerful animals you feel a glow, yet a sadness because you had to end the life of such a magnificent creature. But you're a food producer, so you say a little prayer for the fish and hope for more, many more, before darkness drives you into harbor again to drop anchor, and hope it will hold, then ice your catch and cook your dinner and crawl into a narrow, cramped bunk for a few hours rest.

Then, after what seems only the blink of an eye comes sounds of chains rattling as nearby boats haul anchor, and you peer up at the skylight and are amazed that dawn is breaking. You struggle into your oilskins and boots and prepare for another long, long day. No one could describe the life better than Ballard Hadman in her classic book, As the sailor loves the sea.

About the Author:

Born in Wyoming in 1908, of a pioneering, western family, beautiful, artistically-talented and with a glowing personality that caused one to become an instant devoted friend, Ballard Hadman was one of those rare individuals one never forgets. After a brief career as an artist and movie-stand in for actress Ann Harding at MGM., Ballard learned, in 1937, her two brothers were building a boat at Klawock, Alaska, had named it the Diana, after her, and planned to troll for salmon near Craig, Alaska. She couldn't stand thinking of her namesake being launched without her presence, so she left California and booked passage on a steamer to southeast Alaska. Despite her initial misgivings about the rugged life of a fisherman and the often profane, colorful and individualistic characters that made up the trolling fleet of the 1930s, Ballard, the extrovert, quickly became so fond of the life and the people ( and they of her) she married fisherman James Hadman and stayed in Alaska to raise a family. Mrs. Hadman died in Tuscon, Arizona of cancer in 1968, one month short of her 60th birthday.
