On salmon and screen savers

Bruised and battered from making its way to its birthplace-cum-spawning-grounds, this Chum Salmon looks kinda gnarly. But when the picture appeared on my screen it evoked vivid memories for me. It drew me back to the magic and excitement of traipsing around the rainforest in rubber boots; of standing alone in a river, taking photos of salmon while keeping watch for grizzly bears.
