Saturday Shoutout / Fishing Poet, The Things We Carry

3 comments / Posted on / by


Matt Smythe, AKA, the Fishing Poet has been on a bit of a sabbatical.

He’s back now. With this beautiful, introspective essay written on a receipt trip to the Tongass National Forest in Alaska. Matt’s ride in the De Haviland Otter takes him not only the wilds of Alaska but, figuratively speaking, back to where he belongs.

This is a heart felt piece from a man wrestling with the ceaseless change of life, family and the things we carry. There’s a lesson here for each of us and some deeper understanding of why we pick up the rod and head to the river. We’re glad you’re back Matt. You’ve been missed.
