This very funny Part II of a series on Atlantic salmon fishing on the Miramichi by Don Barone includes a profile of a remarkable 82-year-old angler, Annie Pearson. “In the business we call people like Annie ‘a walking sound byte.’ Here are some Annie-isms: ‘I have that Restless Leg Syndrome thing and I find when I dream of fishing, especially when I dream of the fish that got away, I can’t stop my legs from a jumping.'” There is also some interesting retrospective here on Ted Williams’s salmon fishing days.
Be sure to read the equally entertaining Part I, which was published yesterday.
