    Nice pics, nice country. Have you ever considered dropping the processed hotdogs and fat laden hamburger grilled up on the processed charcoal, lighted with petrol and cooking one of those Grayling on a stick over an open fire? I just have to think, that would have resulted in a better experience, at least for me it would have.

    Well that burger and hotdogs happen to be moose and spices / onions grown in a local garden... SO I'm pretty happy eating red meat

    (plus there are salmon around...)

    What's wrong with burgers and 'dogs on the grill? It's all-American, just need to throw a couple beer boiled brats in there! Mmmmmmm brats, now I'm hungry. Being from Wisconsin, it's one of our food groups.

    Nice pics. I like the underwater grayling most of all. Thanks for sharing.

    had a feeling those were wild game dogs of some sort, hmmmmm

    How do you take underwater pics like that, an underwater box for your cam or a dedicated underwater cam?

    That one of the Grayling in hand is outstanding.

    Because that river is C&R only, and moose tastes way way way better than grayling

    I've got an optio w80 which is waterproof to like 10 feet

    Cause you've been caribou hunting or backpacking for days and are sick of oatmeal and mountain houses... Although I'd have a hard time killing something that gorgeous

    Because they are delicious cooked fresh over a campfire, they are harvested at a very low (almost non-existant) level in some remote streams, and the alternative of packing in a salmon fillet over a multi-day hiking trip isn't feasible. In many cases there is absolutely no conservation concern, so why not?
