Cycle of Life

NrthFk looks at a giant chinook carcass that is providing the nutrients that it's own progency depends on to survive in the crisp glacial streams that bless the northwest...

"NF''s a cool kid :>)

Sounds silly, but at a whisker short of 60 anyone under 40 is "young." Very nice young man from his posts and e mails. Life would be be very good if I could accompany him fishing for a few days. Suspect he'd teach me more than a 'thing or two.'

"NF:" Live long and prosper. Dr. Spock.

Reason #2345694 of Why I Love Rivers

That picture just goes and shows you why I love fishing rivers...if I am away from them for an extended period of time I go nuts. I love their complex ecosystems, which are visible to the naked eye. I know, I know, marine ecosystems are much more complex then any river but river ecosystems manage to be so complex, detailed and fascinating while being conatined in a relatively small area.

And that picture does not do justice to the actual size of that carcass.

It was nice to see a fish that died of natural causes, that Mother Nature decided it was his time. I counted 3 carcasses of female chinook that were caught, killed (most likely snagged) and robbed of their eggs. The pefect slits from knives informed me of their premature, undeserved and hidious fate.

Thanks for the kind words!! If you ever want to chase after some Puget Sound or Olympic Peninsula steelhead, just let me know!!!

Ryan, be careful for what you wish, as you're wish could come true.

Love to spend some time on the river(s) with you.
