Bills Frozen Spawn Sacs

Fresh Salmon and Trout eggs require some method of preservation or they will spoil. Many fishermen cure the eggs using a variety of methods. An angler friend, Bill makes spawn sacs using uncured salmon eggs and freezes the finished spawn sacs. The frozen spawn sacs can be stored for up to a year. The individual packages are thawed when required for a days fishing.
