It’s a Guide’s Life – August 22nd

QCL salmon fishingIt’s crazy realizing you are in the good old days. That these times here in beautiful Haida Gwaii will someday be just a fond memory. Tomorrow I leave this place after a great season with new scars, memories, pictures and fish – none of which can do it justice. This is a place full of endless adventure, almost untouched wilderness and 140 like-minded co-workers to experience it all alongside. When you come here you take a step back from reality and the hustle and bustle of concrete and traffic. An amazing escape that keeps people coming back year after year. As somebody once said to me, this is not the real world it’s the “reel” world.

    This is not really how this last week went, but it sure looks and sounds good.

      Thanks for your observation Scott, You can look forward to my commentary about last week on the next Kingfisher Report, which will be out Sunday or Monday. This Guide’s blog post is simply a personal reflection on his 4th summer up here as a guide and has no reference to a particular trip.
