The rivers may be mud, but I can smell it in the air.

You might even be getting in a little late season skiing the way this year has been, but it’s right around the corner. Here in Georgia we’re already fishing terrestrials, it’s almost here. My buddy Cody Dutcher just posted his first Alaska salmon of the season on Facebook with the message, “Summer, it’s official.” It could already be here!

Summer might mean hundred degree temps in my part of the world but nothing says summer to me like this photo from the Dean River in British Columbia. I had just landed my biggest steelhead to date, a forty-two inch buck, when I saw this chinook salmon breach.

I climbed the mountain side to get a better angle, and waited. When he breached again I captured this image of a happy king salmon and a patient angler, waiting to catch his biggest steelhead ever.

You can have your sunbathing and your back yard barbecues. That summer to me.

    Jeff from OR here.

    I surely think that there is a section in Heaven that looks like this picture that is set aside for fly fishermen. 🙂
