I was just doing a search for positive things Joe Miller has done for Alaska (found none) and came across this site BuyAlaska: Alaska Salmon Leather Co.

What? A salmon leather making company in Kodiak, AK? A place where bears grow bigger than T-Rex and dine almost exclusively on salmon.

Yeah, that's the ticket. Go buy a pair of salmon leather boots, shirt, pair of pants, a hat, and then go for a hike in Kodiak Bear Country looking and smelling like a 125-200 lb salmon.

Even people from my mothers' homeland of Poland aren't that dumb. Well, a few of them, anyway.

This way the salmon are being used twice, and we've got the added benefit of getting rid of the lower form of idjits; it's a win win win.

[CENTER]Alaska Salmon Leather Co.[/CENTER]
Alaska Salmon Leather brand products are a great catch! They're an upscale product at a reasonable price.

Made in the last frontier on beautiful Kodiak Island, Alaska. This exquisite leather product is created from the natural fish skins of wild salmon harvested by commercial fishermen from Alaska's oceans. The salmon skins recycled by the Alaska Salmon Leather Co. are a natural byproduct of the commercial fishing industry. Typically, during the processing of the catch, the skins are discarded by the processing facility. At this time, we recycle just a fraction of the diacarded skins. However, as we expand in the future, we will recycle an even larger percentage of the skins. We are proud of our efforts helping fully utilize the great renewable fishey resource in Alaska.

It takes nearly a month to complete the 75-step hand process necessary to turn a single skin into finished leather. The end result of this painstaking attention to detail and hand labor is a beautiful, durable, long lasting leather. Each skin displays a unique pattern and texture, likely a result of the rigors of living in the wild, open, ocean. Unsurpassed quality is evident throughout from the elegantly lined interiors to the finely stitched, very tough and beautiful Alaska Salmon Leather brand exteriors. The salmon skins we process are used exclusively for Alaska Salmon Leather brand products. Our goal is to provide you with the best product in the world.

It really is the ideal gift for someone (stiffy) you don't like in Alaska.

Yeah I've heard that. But I still own a dozen or more. I have a large 3' dream catcher with 7 very large eagle feathers hanging from it. One night I had a state trooper standing in my house with the thing virtually in her face. She never said a word about it.
