Welcome back to Three-Word Thursday, where Fish Hack is back in the fourth-day saddle after a Haiku Monday summer.

Saddle. Paddle. Biff.
This week’s Oregon Outdoors section reeks of the historical phenomenon in which the latest generation has to show their parents that, when it comes to extremes, the Old Guard can’t hang.

You’ll have to check out Friday’s edition to find out.
