Did a little Fishing not Catching yesterday.

I've spent the past few days visiting friends in the Pacific Northwest en route to a tournament outside Seattle. We went fishing yesterday, hoping to catch some salmon for dinner. What ensued was six hours of nonstop pelting rain, sturdy waves and no salmon.

And it was awesome.

The "Not Catching" isn't entirely accurate, as we did catch lots of dogfish and halibut, although none large enough to be keepers and all of which went back into Puget Sound. But the six hours of shtick was enough to make the lack of salmon a mere afterthought.

The above picture is the only one I took, because it was raining so hard I didn't want to expose my camera to the elements. It's a huge Coast Guard ship that sailed by midway through the day.

I've made an important note to self for future reference ... when fishing in this part of the country, suntan lotion, flip flops and shorts are not needed. Sturdy rain suits, boots and gloves? Yes.
