The largest and most prized species of salmon. Also known more generally as Spring, King, and Chinook...Tyee salmon originate at the Tyee River of Vancouver Island, Canada. Associated with Painter's Lodge, there are specific catch requirements, including using a manually powered boat, limited test line, and non-barbed hooks to qualify as 'Tyee'.
--Yeah, so...I went up to Painter's Lodge to catch me a Tyee...
--How'd you make out?
--Well, I hooked and lost a couple, but finally managed to land one. It was only 46 lbs. but still pulled the boat a kilometre from where it was first hooked.
