"Fog Along the Bow"

March 8, 2010 By: Marshall Cutchin

Calgary Sun photojournalist Mike Drew grabs a fly rod but spends his time recording the beginning of snow melt on the Bow River, a great big-fish river that is usually in full swing with baetis and midges by the end of March.
“There’s good, deep wintering water on the south bank and fish venture out from there to grab food churned from the river bottom by passing icebergs. I’ve had some amazing days there in early spring. Problem is, it ain’t early spring yet. There was open water there but it was a dangerous walk across unstable river ice to get to it. I love fishing but I’m not going to die for it.”
