It's beautiful here. Cold and blue like January Jones. Lording over Lake Michigan, up on a throne, once the most productive freshwater fishing grounds in the world. He had a goose tatooed on his shoulder. The fat of the land on nature's machine. Slowing economic growth for a while now. Beaver Island is probably where the next Michigan state record smallmouth lives. And probably the next fly rod record carp. I hope to get close to one tomorrow. And the next day. And maybe the day after that.
