first ever salmon

Victoria, BC, 2016.07.15

The Boy and I caught two salmon today, a coho and a chinook (locally called a "spring" salmon). We were very, very lucky to be taken out by a fellow named Fred who is a) a friend of my father and b) a veteran fisherman. We were the only boat of about 35 on those waters that we saw land as much as a single fish that morning.
