Autumn Migrations

Two great migrations happen every autumn in Nova Scotia: “The first consists of hundreds of Atlantic salmon, returning to their natal river to spawn after a year, or sometimes longer, spent in the ocean. […] The other is made up of legions of anglers from all over the world who flock to the Margaree in the hopes of connecting with one of those Atlantic salmon.” Read more about the tradition of Atlantic salmon fishing from Monte Burke in The New York Times.

    Very interesting depiction of what it’s like for many who migrate every fall to the Margaree Forks in Nova Scotia to try to land “the fish of a thousand cast.” Not sure if I would have the required patience, or to repeat the process of cast, cast and more cast day after day without any action, this type of fishing definitely requires a certain type of individual to be able to endure.
