Dad and I braved the snowstorm for some socially distanced fishing today. He outfished me 2-0, and though these fish were smaller than we normally catch and one has a nasty lamprey wound, it was a great day. . I needed a break today because after nearly seven years writing for newspapers around the PNW, almost all of my contracts were terminated due to Coronavirus-related budget constraints. .
