Fishers and friends gather in Clyde River for that Baffin community's annual fish derby. The popular event, held this year in Tasiktanna, was scheduled to run from May 21 to May 23 but weather postponed it to this past weekend, May 27 to May 30. This year's cash prizes range from a $550 for sixth place to a whopping grand prize of $11,800, and that's after only a small entry fee of $5 per person. But since not everyone could attend the derby, a committee was struck to hold another derby, this one for sculpin, with prizes ranging from $400 to $1,000. Both derbies closed May 30, with prizes expected to be handed out May 31. (PHOTO BY AIMO PANILOO)
