Default Summer in Alaska; Overexposed?

Jean Paul,

Here is a shot (please forgive the lack of attire), of the no holds barred fighting style I use on salmon. I do this with all species, lift them to the surface, then turn them to shore. The first picture was taken at the end of the lift and I am now dropping the rod to drag him to shore, headfirst. These fish only weighed 8 lbs. or about 3.6 Kilograms.

As the day wore on I continued to catch fish and released many of them. All of the hens are released and males with too much color. We have had outstanding weather here in Alaska this year and yesterday was warm. These are the real 'Macho Man' fly fisherman pictures. Your right she is charming yes.

This is what I mean by 'color' as the fish remain in fresh water they deteriorate and change color from the bright silver they wear at sea. This fish is still very good for the table but in another 7 - 14 days he would not be very palatable.

Ard: Very nice fishing photos, he-man shot and of course the beautiful wife! You must have been in some very warm weather to be out shirtless.

Great pictures. I used to do a lot of fishing and camping there when I lived in Cheyenne. Those pictures bring back some good memories!

Bob: Very nice photos of N. Central PA! I really like the lab swimming in the background and the brookies are gorgeous. This weekend while floating on the Colorado River we had a few tubers floating by. One couple were floating in inner tubes and their dog was floating behind them. He has a life vest on and was floating downstream backwards, it looked pretty funny, but he sure looked like he was having a grand time.

butchhe: Thanks, yes I agree, there are some nice waters over there and the scenary is to die for, expecially when the plants are blooming. That French Creek sure has some slippery rocks!

JP: I think he used the black lab to catch that big brown (the rod in the picture is just for show)! LOL!

Bob: That is pretty amazing, never heard of a dog actually catching a fish. When I lived in Alaska I had a black lab mix that would catch squirrels on occasion (used to gross out my wife). Last year while fishing from my drift boat with my son and his yellow lab, my son was hooked into a nice rainbow and the fish jumped near the boat and in went the lab after the fish, it was pretty funny at least until we tried hauling a wet lab back into a high sided drift boat (boy was he heavy). Anyway, thanks for posting you did a great job on the photos, very nice work!

Larry
