If you enjoy a fish story, head over to your quality news stand and pick up a copy of the May/June Gray’s Sporting Journal—and I’m not saying that just because I have a piece in the current issue, adapted from a chapter in the book. If you’re not familiar with GSJ, check it out here. There are few better outlets for the reader (or writer) who could care less about trophies, secret spots, and the latest outdoorsy fashion statements.
I really like the artwork the editors paired with the story. Though a salmon fisherman isn’t likely to encounter such breakers along the beaches of Puget Sound, the painting captures the feel of the elements, how you can disappear into your thoughts on a good day of saltwater casting even when the beach is crowded with other anglers.
