Salmon fishing in September. That makes me think of the Logging Show earlier this month over Labor Day Weekend. Why, you may ask? Well, on display next to the steam donkey is another late 19th century engine called a hit and miss engine. The little engine sputters and wooshes in and awkward manner; the entire time one thinks that it is just about to sputter itself out, but keeps on going. Now maybe I am getting a little abstract, but that is what the last few days of salmon fishing have been like for Rich and Laura. Two days of trolling around without a salmon to show for it. We will see what today brings (fingers crossed).
It is just the way September goes sometimes; the fish have to stop biting sometime. It may seem sad today, but it just makes me hope for Sablefish "tomorrow". Mmm.... Black Cod. Flaky, firm (when cooked properly), buttery rich, loaded with omega 3s. Suddenly I am hungry for Black Cod tacos! Coming soon!
