Troll Kings

The sign said "Troll Kings are in!!".  I pulled in to the parking lot of the fish market.  Winter king salmon are rich and white fleshed, oozing fat and flavor.  I picked out some scallops, cod, rockfish, and halibut, but didn't see the kings, so I asked.  The Mongerman is always there, and he offered fresh, or frozen and vaccuum packed for a dollar less.  i wanted cold and cheap.  He scaled it and priced it, and I almost fainted. He laughed and put the fish back.  If I want thirty dollars per pound fish, I'll drive somewhere beautiful, pay for fuel and a guide, work myself all sweaty, pose for pictures, and smell like fish guts for a week.  Can't wait.
