Default Rivers, Vista's, and Some Fish;

With the long span of time between seasons here I have few threads to post so I am placing some items from my files here. Little by little I will add more pictures.

As the thread grows, if you are interested in seeing the photographs you'll need to scroll down to find new posts. I will try not to copy the pictures that are in my album here on the 'Profile' page. There are a bunch there and you can run a sort of slide show with them.

Some bridges are better than others. I've crossed a lot of them but this is my favorite, Alaska style.

Sea run trout; I'm alone a lot so snapshot pictures are my norm. For the record, the length between the tip pf my thumb and middle finger is 9 1/4". Big hands, they sort of make the fish smaller. I don't know how long most of them are but this was a nice one.

Wading the Kenai; I like to park the pontoon boat and hoof it.

Yes Casey that's the one you love.

Larry & Bill, I am going to be packing my camera this year every time I wet a line so you will get pictures from here.

Fysh, Now you finally know what to build for the deck

Mrs. Fysh, you're gonna love them when you get em done.

Ard
