Primus frontman Les Claypool
is a keen fisherman and this song is about the decline in the salmon fishing industry in Northern California. He explained to Artist Direct: "I have a handful of friends who are commercial fishermen. It has always has been hard for them; it's not like fishermen get rich. But now they're going the way of the lumberjack. When you've got over 125 golf courses down in the desert in Palm Springs and there's water being diverted there from the North, it's going to effect the fish populations. I've always been outspoken about that notion of sacrificing one industry, one legacy, for another that just happens to have a lot of money around it. I mean, I like hanging out on the golf course, too, [laughs] but this seems a little ridiculous."
