Abstract:

Nelson Kunker is trapped in his job as the script supervisor of a low-rated late-night sketch television show. One day he meets Roy Briggs, a part-time salmon fisherman/full-time archaeology student who's visiting from Alaska. He also meets the guest host of that week's show, the surprisingly bookish movie star Dylan Fabizak. When the three end up at Roy's home in Alaska, hilarity, love, and debauchery ensue. Wooed by both Roy and Dylan, Nelson comes to strongly identify with the salmon they are fishing for -- another insanely driven species that will overcome every hurdle in its search for love.
