Fish On!

June 6, 2006 00:57

I caught my first salmon of the season today finally, a small 15-lb king. It was a good hook-up, right in the corner of the mouth so that the hook doesn't come out and the fish bends to the manipulation from the rod. It didn't fight much. It's on its way up to Tustamena lake now, since the adipose fin was intact, indicating a protected native species. George brought in a keeper last week, and I ate fresh lax with cream cheese, red onions, and capers on a bagel. Needless to say, I've looked forward to that treat all year.

Good times, sunshine, and friends abound these days.

Oh yeah, and shifting practice and Schumann. Better go do that now.
