For me, I'm re-reading a book I read when I was much younger. In fact, it's 4 books, but the volume I own has all four in one book. It's called Seasons of a Fisherman, by Roderick Haig-Brown, the famous writer out of northern Vancouver Island. It's made up of "Fisherman's Spring," "Fisherman's Winter," etc. These were written from 1954 to 1964, and describe the author's adventures fishing for salmon, steelhead, and sea-run cutthroat trout (my favorite trout). They bring back what it must have been like when the rivers were full of migrating fish.

Does it say nice things about brown trout?



There’s nothing nice to say about Brown Trout 🤷🏼‍♂️

All kidding aside, it doesn’t talk a ton about Browns.



Didn't expect it to.

Was just poking a bit.

Funny - I'm re-reading them too.
