Four years exactly


On September 28 four years ago I fished a pool call Moors on the River Cains (in New Brunswick, Canada). It was a wild and beautiful place and it produced a thumping big salmon that day.

That was then and this is now, or was last night.

We drove through the forest.

I fished. Nothing happened.

We talked about other stuff.

Tyler turned and then it happened. Jag jag soft tug soft tug why grilse hello.

Fish! FISH?



And it was good.


Finally, Tyler (Byzie’s son don’t ya know) ran with the fish to the cage for the hatchery. It was all a bit of a blur.
