Alpha-Getti al Fungi Recipe

A few years back I was fly fishing on Lac Mistassini and was reminded of a time I was fly fishing at Réserve Faunique Papineau Labelle. At the time, I hadn’t gone fishing more than once or twice; even as a child my father didn’t take me fishing much because he felt my efforts would be better focused hunting the forest for kindling or setting up the perfect circle of mosquito coils back at our campsite (for those who don’t know, the perfect circle is one coil every 2 feet, in an ever increasing arc using the golden spiral moving outward from the epicenter of the campsite. Don’t believe me? Try it!). So my experience with catching fish was minimal; I’d mostly be treated to tales of the great lunkers that got away. As a wee one I’d listen in on such stories in amazement, but in my teenage years I remember rolling my eyes, challenging Dad for proof of these lunkers. “Pics or it didn’t happen!” I’d say, and because these were the years before digital cameras, it didn’t really make a lot of sense. 

On to the recipe!
