It didn’t really start to sink in until the wheels were up and the plane was headed back East. The smoke and spray had long since cleared, the boats were winterized and the camp was boarded up, but whenever I close my eyes the mental movie of the last few fishing days of the year keep looping through the cinema of my mind. The twice-yearly pilgrimage to the Holy Water has created some long-running hits in this particular theater, but most of these have been shoved to the side as my subconscious is still trying to fully grasp and contextualize the events of last week. As I have noted in the past, this kind of experience does not lend itself to neat linear translation to the written word…
It is said that a picture is worth a thousand words – if that is true, the following constitutes a 24,000 word love letter to Bristol Bay and its beautiful rainbow-flavored inhabitants.
I hope you enjoy it, because I’m pretty sure I did…although it still feels like it was all a dream.
