    Default Taking the greenhorn

    Gonna get the greenhorn aka mossyhorn aka riley out on the kenai tomorrow. Poor guy has been shut out in his bid to lose his salmon virginity. So Im gonna throw the raft in the water, hit a spot or two or 3 or more I know and see if I can set the man up. Would love to get him a slamon or two early and let him enjoy the river. If nothing else hopefully I can put him on a rainbow or two also. I heard you can catch them there. So if any of you guys see the boat pulled over feel free to come share a story, beverage and a laugh. Even if they are not in thick at all I do know a few places to "sight" fish them on the Kenai. So hopefully he will come home a smiling man with a happy ending tomorrow.

    Ill post a report tomorrow evening of how the day went, what fishing was like for those looking to go down sunday.

    Oh and he better thank my wife if he gets a few. She gave up here spot in the boat for him

    Just got a text from the greenhorn. He made a day run to the russian. Popped his cherry twice. Then broke his new 8wt. Welcome to alaska Mossyhorn. LMAO. So I will let him use my 8wt that has, no lie, at least 750 or more reds landed on it. Had it since 89. Loan it to lots of "rookies" If he breaks it so be it

    Dude, she is just your g/f not your wife. LMAO Either way, as my wife says "there is alot worse things a man can do that float the river and fish" My wife does not ever stop me from going. She knows it is my love. I do things with her she wants too. Get to the river buddy. A couple of more blinks of the eyes and it will be fishaplooza then winter fishing.

    The one thing I promised myself when my mom passed. I am not waiting untill tomorrow anymore. Dad died at 60, mom at 66. Im gonna be 45. do the math or 46. Someone do the math for me July of 65 is when I was born. **** beer


    Everything else. What else is there????????
