Salmon fishing off the Pickering Bluffs on Lake Ontario last week. In my mouth is a Missouri Meerschaum corncob and in the bowl is some Frog Morton. There's a 20 lb. chinook on the end of that line which took about 10 minutes to bring in. What you can't see in the picture is that the floor of the boat looked like an ashtray when that fish was done with me. What you can see in the picture is that, yes, that is as painful as it looks... I think I'm grimacing rather than smiling.
You know, we cigar and pipe smokers are giving shaving a bad name
I have survived the great Arko War of 2013, thanks chiefly to Ed's Latakia discussion.
Bliss indeed. It is so quiet here on weekdays. I am the only live-aboard on my pier, too.
