The Smelt Dancer by Bryce Muir
The Cathance freezes in the winter and sea-run smelts swim upstream under the ice to spawn. When you are out on the ice skating and skiing you are always alert for flaws in the ice, sudden movements. Occasionally you see the flicker of a fish darting beneath you. There is a presence under the black ice, holding it up. The Smelt Dancer celebrates ice-making, and the sweet taste of fresh smelts.
