June 6, 2006 at 7:57 AMI 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.
Isn't "fresh lox" (I'm assuming "lax" was a typo) an oxymoron, since lox is smoked and all that? I still don't know how you can be so slim while married to a chef. :)
Right now, I'm training for a mountain race. That's where the food goes, thought I admit that having a summer job as a baker is pretty much torture for my ravenous sweet tooth. I could have eaten a dozen sugar cookies today... (sigh)
