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 Ard

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 Ard

We did quite a bit of traveling both on the water & the roads trying hard to find the salmon who proved to be elusive this past season. While Pam did well on some char and trout we came up short on finding her a salmon.

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 Ard

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 ............

The Long Winters Work At The Cabin;

Posted 04-11-2013 at 05:24 PM by Ard

Like many of the entries here this will be a multiple part story. I'll identify the pages; Part Two, and etc. until we reach the current time.
The story starts back on December 22, 2012 and I stayed out there until March 27, 2013. Over this time I did a lot of work but somehow it seems there is still so much to do that I'm not sure I'll live long enough to finish it all. I do intend to try.

Getting ready to leave home for a long trip into the Bush country is stressful, at...
