Some Things Are More Important Than Fish

In the movies the “three amigos” were Disney characters who shared various adventures. In my world the “three amigos” were three characters who shared a love of the St. Lawrence River that was not as colorful or exciting but bonded us together in fishing or other adventures or actions over the years. Al Benas was the owner of the Thousand Islands Inn in Clayton for decades, a river guide that was known and respected far and wide. Mike Seymour was originally from downriver in Ogdensburg but had a reputation as one of the best fishermen and guides on the river. I laid no such claim to knowledge of the river or skill at fishing equal to the other two but my enthusiasm for fishing the St. Lawrence was close behind. Over the years I spent a lot of time on the St. Lawrence, fishing, boating, or learning about the river.
