Beatrice Cook married a man with an avocation—FISH—Up to then fish were something you cooked in a pan.

Born in Chicago, she grew up in Connecticut, returned to Chicago to take her B. S. at the University of Indiana, and then went out to Seattle. It was not until her first sight of the mountain peaks that Beatrice found she had grown up on the wrong coast of the United States, for from the first she delighted in the country of the Pacific Northwest. (She didn't anticipate her future intimate connection with its streams and inlets.)

Now, after more than twenty years, Beatrice Cook is qualified as few transplanted Easterners ever are, to tell this story of fishing in the Pacific Northwest. She loves it!

As a family, the Cooks have some of their best times fishing for salmon of the beautiful San Juan Islands in the inland waters of Washington. When folks ask Beatrice Cook, "Do you live in the San Juans?" she always answers, "Yes. I LIVE there but unfortunately must spend nine months of the year in Seattle.”
