Seattle

With my third trip to Seattle I’m still trying to figure out what this place is about, but I think I’ve now just pegged it:  grunge-Frasier-gay-tree hugger-punk rock-seafood-artsy-green…yeah, that about sums it up.  A very interesting blend of upscale and expensive, graffiti and green, homeless and downtrodden.  A Starbucks on every other corner, intermingled with…

Canada Fishing Trip

I’ve made the 16-hour journey to the booming metropolis of Minaki, Ontario (population 250) nearly every year since 1989. The Winnipeg River system flows through this area of northwest Ontario and spreads out into countless lakes, bays and channels, all loaded with the greatest freshwater fishing has to offer.
