We will be at Fishapalooza Sept 5-12 and will raft the Upper Kenai for bows/dollies each day. Staying at the RRCG (rainbow loop) if anyone wants to drop in and have a beer or nine. The wife has a new 8wt she wants to test out on some silvers and I thought about a day trip on the middle. Bought it at Mossy's a few months back, sweet St Croix Ken of K Kustom Rods in Anchorage made. Wife is looking at it today as I am loading fly boxes and says "I really want to catch a silver". "Shet" I says softly to myself. Now I am trying to make that happen as I will do anything to encourage her to fish more. Learned over the years this to be a good thing. Also, shame being so close to the middle in Sept and not fishing it. Took the raft down it last year and it made for a long day. The idea of shelling out a little coin for a guided motor boat this year seems like a better plan. We both fly fish and would like to spend an equal amount of time on bows and silvers. Thought I would ask here in case anyone had any suggestions. Thanks for any comment.
