The call came in with very few hours to spare. “Cancel everything on your calendar.” We’re headed to La Push!”
I hung up, gave out a Yee-Haaa, and started on my packing list.
This is a trip that we had been trying to coordinate for the past two seasons. The “we” being TRN contributor Jim Tuggle (Tug), mutual friend Jay Webster and myself. I couldn’t remember if I had ever fished the sculptured rock formations of La Push nearshore but if I had, it was long ago in my teens and a different lifetime…one that belonged to my high school days in Port Angeles maybe.
