I've been looking at the forum posts just to see if anyone knew this gentleman. I didn't see any post on it. I was sad to see this come up in my email from ADN for the latest fishing report.
Sad to hear and even sadder for the family I suspect.
Dipnetter, 71, dies after fall into Kenai River
A 71-year-old man has died after falling into the Kenai River while dipnetting.
This article and the following commentaries bring up an interesting conundrum.... Just what makes for full-time residency in AK??? I lived here for two years before even THINKING of getting a dipnetting permit, PDF or any other benefits that AK offers residents. As a Washington landowner but an Alaskan resident I didn't think it would be legal to take advantage of the dipnetting up here.
Still....does not negate the fact that this fellow sucumbed to the Kenai and more than likely left a family and friends.
