Fishing Aitutaki, Cook Islands: Gin-Colored Waters and the Art of Bonefishing

by Stefanie Michaels

Stefanie’s travelogue from the Cook Islands illustrates the delightful fantasy of travel writing. Her use of carefully chosen adjectives paints a detailed and charming picture of Aitutaki, while managing to avoid cliches or excessively florid prose. Her description of a fishing trip makes you feel like you’re along for the ride. Perhaps best of all, she fairly portrays both the negatives and positives of the experience. The three original photos are a perfect complement to an honest and enjoyable read.
