Fishing tales

There were fish galore being landed in an Ontario Salmon Derby celebrity boat, but Toronto Sun columnist Joe Warmington couldn't catch a cold, John Downing jabs in a blog posting.

On the boat with Downing and Warmington were OPP Commissioner Julian Fantino, derby manager Walter Oster, businessman Bob Dickson and Natural Resources Minister Linda Jeffery.

Downing laments the Sun's decline in derby promotions, once a priority in the days of Linda Ruddy, Pat Surphlis and photographer Hugh Wesley.

So Downing, the Sun's former editor and political columnist, does his own promo.

"It seems the salmon in Lake Ontario are so big this year you don't have to exaggerate your catch. And they're so many salmon out there that I think even Joe Warmington will finally manage to catch one."

Fishing tales from a master storyteller.
