"...artfully hooks onlookers with its old-school humour and ageless wisdom" - Winnipeg Free Press

"Two very fine performances here."  - CBC Radio

Don and Wes have survived war, marriages and each other’s company for over half a century. But things have changed since these two old friends started fishing together. Lures, (f)lies, and the big ones that got away aren’t the only topics of conversation at the cabin this weekend. A touching comedy about two old coots wishing they could remember some things better, and others they’d rather forget. This poignant and powerful play explores love, loss and the hope for forgiveness against a background of a complicated friendship and fading memories.
