This weather vane was crafted by Warren Gilker (1922-1998), and commemorates the second-largest Atlantic salmon ever legally caught in Canada, a 55-pounder brought in by Victor Albert Stanley. Gilker, a third-generation blacksmith, began making weather vanes in 1980. Formerly a camp manager and head warden on Canada's Grand Cascapedia river, Gilker crafted his first weather vane in 1980 at the request of Jane Engelhard, who wanted to commemorate her late husband's largest salmon catch.
Warren Gilker was my grandfather and had many talents other than blacksmithing! Great to see this stuff recognized still.
