We dream of bright grabby salmon and steelhead in remote, wilderness settings.
Sometimes there are good fish close to home. Perhaps the salmon aren’t quite as large as we might prefer. Sometimes they are found in uncomfortable proximity to people who care little of our passion for clean air, clean water, and clean fish.
Beauty, like peace of mind, is to be found in surprising places, if we can find what we need where we are at the moment.
I have been blessed with good friendship and strong bright salmon, and for both I am grateful.
