They had a great time and came back with two sockeye salmon each. Sockeye is really good salmon. I know my mother has her opinion about salmon. It's not her favourite! Just like she isn't crazy about lasagna. But we forgive you because we love you!
To me a good salmon is a really yummy meal. In terms of eating I prefer a sockeye over a spring salmon anytime. All the salmon they caught were silver (very good) and not red (bad)! "Red" salmon at this time of the year have gotten really beaten up by the river and spawning etc and are not a great eating fish.
This year they tried their hand at fly fishing which they hadn't done before. It sounded like a lot of fun. Next year, we really want to make more time for it. Maybe I might even have to get hip waders on and try!?
For now though we can keep hoping for a little more fish!
