What began as one man's gesture to scan some of his friends fishing pictures has turned into a gallery of over 15,000 images. Today fishermen up and down the west coast have sent their pictures to be added to this collection. Jon Norgaard has worked tirelessly to put together this site to help preserve the legacy of fishermen young and old along with their boats and history. We hope you enjoy your voyage as you view pictures from the past through the present period. See you over the next swell.
