Well my son and I along with a friend hit the upper Kenai on opening day. Our friend had just got on to a nice Rainbow and I netted it for him. We were in the process of releasing the fish, searching for the hemostats that I had misplaced. That is when we hear this yelling and cursing "get the fish in the water, get the fish in the G*****m water". It was a guide doing the yelling and cursing. I reacted to his tantrum, badly. we had a few words and saluted each other as he went by.
For that I apologize as the young man was correct the fish should have remain in the water. However, he was 100% wrong on how he went about pointing out the error I made. A little diplomacy goes a long way as yelling and curing is not only rude and unprofessional it is also a good way to get your plow cleaned.
So, to all the river guides and private anglers let's practice some river etiquette and enjoy the sports.
