    The blog highlighting items available at this past Sunday's Ballard Farmers Market stated the following for pink salmon: It takes well to grilling, smoking, pickling, marinating, seasoning and saucing. It is pink instead of red, like its cousins, because pink salmon is vegetarian. Anyone tried a kelp fly for pinks?

    Isn't their flesh kind of orangish?

    There is no question that the kelp fly is a superior pattern when fishing for vegans in Ballard.....You will find them schooling around food co-ops in town....
