*This is the name of a great book by Edith Iglauer.
John lives in Moncton and is an avid fisherman who has fished the Miramichi many times and had read The Americans are Coming when it was first published in 1989 (it's just been reissued). In John's opinion, the quirky characters in the books have not been exagerrated to increase literary impact-they're typical of the people that the John encounters when he's fishing in the area.
Later that evening, I typed "how to catch an atlantic salmon" into the YouTube search box and we watched a badly-focused video called "You’ll Always Remember Your First (Labrador Atlantic Salmon)".
I like the part where she holds the salmon in her hands and talks to it while she’s taking out the hook and then kisses it. Wonder what the fish is thinking. John uses a different technique than the guy in the video: he does not let his wrist break but uses a whole arm movement when casting the line.
After that we watched "Jumping Wild Atlantic Salmon at Pinware River Labrador" (John fishes there too). You’ll need patience to wait for those darn fish to jump! Just like real fishing I guess.
Was that two fish jumping or was the same fish jumping twice?
While I was writing this post I watched "The BIG One That Got Away at Pinware River, Labrador"
Not sure if I saw a fish or not but we’re all having too much fun to care.
