"This stunning, hand-carved fishing reel is the fourth annual limited edition release of 90 handcrafted, hand-carved reels from PEETZ. It features a circular depiction of a sea wolf, salmon, and moon (represented by abalone inlay*) by renowned Kwagiulth artist and master carver Jason Henry Hunt.
The sea wolf is a unique subspecies of grey wolf that lives primarily in the Great Bear Rainforest of British Columbia. This wolf is unique in its willingness to swim miles between islands in search of new territory and hunting grounds. There is a First Nations legend that Orca whales originated from sea wolves that remained at sea due to their hunting prowess.
The future of the sea wolf is directly connected to the health of Pacific salmon stocks, as more than 25% of its diet consists of salmon and other fish." - Marc Hoelsher, owner, PEETZ Outdoors
