    Default photos of week on upper kenai..

    https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?...1&l=f8654ea7b2

    the link is to my face book album... and i admit.. the first day i had the camera.. and it was dead... pouring down rain, and ret25yo... lost a sage 9wt and reel... him climbing out onto the 2 inch tree to try and save it was er... LOL?!!!

    second day i forgot camera in charger....

    so this is mostly 3d day...and 4thd ay...

    days 5 and 6.. man i was rowing to beat the band... and looking for fish. hence camera was on the phone... and they need to be added to this album..

    all in all

    Family had a great time, my Vanessa 11 second trip, still showed them boys how to fish (when she felt like it) the rest of the fam... first timers.. my two oldest are off doing other things and did not join us.

    Great photos Vince! Thanks for sharing man. I am going to try to get down there the first week of August. Those were some nice dollies you guys (and gals) caught. What flies were working the best for you for the dollies?

    lol they bit on every color coho flie we had.. the rainbows too.. the missus caught and released a 20+ bow that hit her green fly... got kind of a pain sometimes.. i would target a red and have a lil dolly smack the fly and make me miss...

    Thats a good time there! Was in Ak several weeks ago but the 2nd run had not arrived. Plan on trying to make a trip back next summer the last part of July hoping to catch the run. While there the first week of July this year we stopped along the Russian, where were you guys on the River??

    Man yer math sucks!! It's 3.5 to Bings if you ain't s sissy!! You had 6 other paddlers.

    Next time eat your Wheaties and pack less beer! No sense passing Dots, it's all holed up with private property.
    We do not go to the green woods and crystal waters to rough it, we go to smooth it. We get it rough enough at home; in towns and cities; in shops, offices, stores, banks anywhere that we may be placed
