I read someplace that the most attractive feature of fishing is that it makes us travel to places that we would not otherwise go. There is a lot of truth to that statement. I have boated and flown and hiked to some of the world's most remote - and beautiful - locations, just to entice a fish to my fly. Ostensibly the "purpose" of the trip was fishing. My fondest memories of those trips however have little or nothing to do with the fish.

 


I do, however, vividly remember the beaver splashing in the newly opened water on a back-country pond last spring, just after ice-out. One the most memorable - and delicious - meals that I have ever eaten anywhere was in a guide shack, sitting on log benches over a communal cast iron dutch oven. I have no recollection of how many fish we caught that day, but I doubt I will feast on a better porcupine stew anytime soon. (No, it does not taste like chicken, but it does come with its own toothpicks.)

 


The scene of an osprey crashing below the surface to retrieve a recently released brookie is etched in my memory. I don't remember catching the trout. I do remember the osprey. I hike into the Hoffman Notch Wilderness now every spring, with the sole intention of visiting the osprey nest in a flooded beaver pond that also hosts a colony of great blue herons. I carry a rod, but I don't always fish. I almost always use the camera.
