A Whale of a Tale


It's not everyday that you see a 19-foot salmon downtown—or it didn't used to be. Look for this fishy fellow around Boise in the near future. This new piece of art is constructed of a metal skeleton with a paint job that will definitely trompe yer l'oeil. Is it art? Is it social commentary? Stay tuned to BW for updates ...

In the meantime, get your fill of fishy stuff this Friday at the Fisherman's Happy Hour at Grainey's. Join Idaho Steelhead and Salmon Unlimited to celebrate Idaho's wild fish. All proceeds will be donated to support ISSU in an effort to continue to protect wild Idaho salmon and steelhead runs.

5-8 p.m. $15 (includes raffle ticket for 2006 Clackacraft drift boat, Guinness and Bud Light refreshments and wild Alaskan Sockeye salmon). For more information, call ISSU at 424-3351 or 371-1433. Tom Grainey's, 109 S. 6th St.
