The National Fisherman crew has noticed an uptick in printed references to the magazine lately.
First there were several mentions of our esteemed Editor and Publisher Jerry Fraser's November editorial on Sarah Palin in an Ed Killer piece.
But the most surprising news alert I received this week was mention of National Fisherman in a story titled: "'Idol's' ultimate grad Carrie delivers enthusiastic, evolved performance."
Carrie Underwood and National Fisherman are an unusual pairing, to say the least. She's from cattle country with little to connect her to fishing, except perhaps some fans.
It turns out NF is the exception to Carrie's adoration in this story: "There were even photographs of magazine covers, and she seems to have graced everything except National Fisherman."
I guess that makes us the uncool kids. However, I'm putting out the call now: If Carrie would like to pose for our cover, we'd be happy to have her. Someone get this gal a Grundens t-shirt!
Just a few weeks ago, I was humming along through Michele Longo Eder's very moving memoir "Salt in the Blood" (see the review in NF's December issue) when I stumbled across a passage about Ginny Goblirsch's induction into National Fisherman's Highliner club (she received the honor in 2001). Goblirsch gushes over her phone call from Jerry Fraser.
The fact is, we are honored to be in the room with so many industry movers and shakers at every Highliner dinner.
As the only national commercial fishing publication (and one with a rich and long history), we pride ourselves on reaching out to our readership across this great land of ours.
If you're planning on coming to Seattle next month for Pacific Marine Expo, stop by the National Fisherman booth to say hi.
