My wife and I had a GREAT float trip down Little Willow Creek (in Willow Alaska).
The weather was beautiful, and our guide was engaging and helpful. The fishing was good, the scenery was beautiful, and we only saw one other raft the whole day. Talk about the true Alaska experience !!
We put in at the Parks Hwy Bridge, and floated down to the Big Su River. It took about eight hours. We floated and fished, we got out and fished, we got in the river and fished, the guide did all of the rowing, and we had a blast.
My wife caught and released three or four nice Rainbow Trout, and I caught and released one 18.5 inch rainbow. I even caught my first Silver Salmon on my new CHEAPO fly rod. My wife caught two nice BIG Silvers under eggs. Then I caught another Silver, and we had our limit.
All in all it was a great trip. At the end the guide showed me how to tie a blood knot (line to line), and then he showed me how to tie an egg loop. But the one knot he didn't know how to tie was....... how to tie the stringer of fish to the raft
All of that fun, and all we ended up with are these pictures. That's right, we (he) lost our fish. The guide was very apologetic. And the head guide gave us some of his frozen fish (and knocked a few bucks off the trip), but still.
Oh well, he didn't do it on purpose, and I guess they say **** happens, BECAUSE **** HAPPENS. I just wish it wouldn't always happen to me
Pictures to follow.
