Fish On! The Historic Boathouses and Fishing resorts of Puget Sound


Abby Inpanbutr – one of our own – has some photos showing at the Center for Wooden Boats' event, "Fish On! The Historic Boathouses and Fishing resorts of Puget Sound."

If you haven't been there, this is such a cool place.. it's all things wooden boats – boats (of course), their history, experts, education, activities, rentals – a great place to bring your camera and capture some images while you check out this exhibit and Abby's work. There will be many other historical photographs shown and is mostly about the history of the historic boathouses and fishing resorts of Puget Sound.

Following are the details I pulled from their website's event page:

CWB celebrates the story of our region's unique small watercraft, their builders and the places to rent them in "Fish On! The Historic Boathouses and Fishing resorts of Puget Sound", an original exhibit illustrating the story of the rise of salmon sport fishing. The exhibit opens December 29 in the Boathouse Gallery and on CWB's docks.

Fish On! focuses on the first half of the 20th century, the heyday of recreation salmon fishing, and the numerous boathouses and Puget Sound resorts that supported the activity. This is more than a static exhibit. It includes historic photographs, working exhibits, youth activities, on-the-water programs and historic boats at our docks, all highlighting the quest for the silvery hoards with rod and reel. There also will be materials available so visitors can share their own Puget Sound salmon fishing stories.

The exhibit is open 10am to 5pm Tuesday through Sunday. Join us to learn and share your stories.

    It was fun reading about the history of the boathouses and fishing resorts. Even better seeing the old images included in the displays.

    Coincidentally the new mohai will be opening next door. And if anyone would like to go sailing I've happily skipper one if their livery boats.
