These are all songs I write while singing along with the engine as I troll for salmon near Elfin Cove, Alaska.

The engine drones along and words pop into my head... then get written down on the back of any handy piece of paper.. like those pink fish ticket forms you get every time you sell.

Later, when things get too quiet, I might sing them to my fellow trollers on channel 14... our local hanging out channel. "You realize you just sang that on channel 16?"... well I hope they liked it!
