A CUTTS AND CHUM JOURNAL I
” . . . I commented to her that fishers of sea-run cutts are collectively one of the nicest groups of people I know. They’re folks who pay attention to details in the natural world (rips in an estuary.) They’re not ego driven (bigger egos tend to track bigger fish.) And they’re happy to share tips with like-minded folks.
