Trouble In Paridise................. ..

Posted 11-20-2012 at 06:47 PM by Hardyreels

Where to start?

That's what has kept me from writing for so long. It's been a long while since May and so much to tell, are you ready for a 5 part Blog entry? Good, here we go............ You may notice that some photos in Part One are a recap from a previous entry but I ran them anyway because I had no others to fill in with. The title for this series of entries is based on the premise that Alaska is indeed Fisherman's Paradise, for me it has been but there has been a troubling trend...

Part 2, Trouble In Paradise;

At the mid point of June Mt brother Tom arrived from Pennsylvania and was our guest through the third week of July. Trips taken during his visit were not fishing oriented (not too much) because he doesn't fish, go figure. I tried to get him involved back in the late 60's and early 70's but he became frustrated easily. He was always a results sort while I was a little more pragmatic about what really equaled results. He quit and still holds to the story that he did so because his brother (me) seemed...

Part 3, Trouble In Paradise;

Posted 11-20-2012 at 06:46 PM by Hardyreels

I spent the remainder of July and the first week of August fishing and scouting for some salmon. What I was doing was getting ready for company again, this time it was some people from this Forum! John & Pam Page, fysh & mrs. fysh, came to Alaska this year. Although I've seen better years to try to impress anyone with the fishing we all had fun and they seemed to be catching fish despite the conditions. Speaking of conditions we had wonderful weather while they were here and of that I was...

Part 4, Touble In Paradise;

Posted 11-20-2012 at 06:44 PM by Hardyreels

Here's Pam sneaking up on what looked like a great place to find a steelhead in this small river.

Time For Some Catching Up Here...............

Posted 03-30-2013 at 04:15 PM by Hardyreels

As many know I was away from the forum, my home and of course this computer keyboard for the time span December 23, 2012 - March 27, 2013. Before I start writing a series of long photo filled entries about all the work and a few photo opportunities that I had over the winter at the cabin it seems appropriate to re cap 2012. The years entries wouldn't be complete without telling you about ............

It was August and as summer wound down the season...
