    Pals-n-friends! That's good.

    PAF is Pay After Fishing. A commercial salmon fishermen would have credit available throughout the fishing community by signing the invoice with the name of the cannery they delivered to, vessel name or SN permit number ( ha ha ha, means Set Net ), and in large letters PAF.
    In many ways it did enslave the fishermen to the company store and on worse years or some bad luck with your gear or weather one could end up with a negative season: SOL
