Getting the last few things packed for the trip. Just wanted to say thanks for all the responses to my questions, the pm's and to the dude that sent me all those beads. I hope I've learned enough to catch something...I'm all Southern, which means I've yet to meet a stranger, so if you see me out on the water, come on over. If you don't want to be friendly, then at least yell at me if you see me doing something stupid. Be on water from Talkeetna down to Homer, Anchorage to Copper Center and down to Valdez. Hope I can put up some good reports as I have access to wifi. Debated...and decided to show my face...sorry it's not a better picture with a bigger fish but I don't make many pictures these days. Thanks again.
