Late this afternoon, we went down to the Haney Wharf. The rain of the morning had stopped and the sun was peeking out between the clouds. A sharp contrast made between the black, heavy clouds and the golden light filtering through them.
This is the best place in town to catch the early evening sun. Apparently, the fish think so too. The rippling water glistens golden, appearing to have a million little fishes nibbling at its surface. The dock was lined with fishermen.
There is a fisheries notice up, alerting folks that bait fishing is prohibited and any Coho caught, must be released. Anyone caught with Coho could face a heavy fine. This is all due to reduced numbers of Coho in this years run. So these guys were fun to watch as they continually cast out their fly's onto the water.
The fish were jumping, making a plopping sound on the quiet water. There was a seal there too, looking for an easy dinner! We looked on as one fellow reeled in his catch. The way his rod was bending, I thought he would land a huge salmon, everyone had a good chuckle when instead, he reeled in a four inch bull fish! He put up quite a struggle.
Canada geese were flying low over the water probably looking for somewhere to spend their night. Their plaintive honking, drawing every one's eyes up to their flight path.
What a nice way to spend a Saturday afternoon.
Time to get some rest now as I have to work night shafts for the next three shifts. Blagh!
